Illinois to Minnesoter

Chicago Diner. Unbelievable. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves: 

Blue corn pancakes with "bacon":

Chicago Diner I

Breakfast "Sausage" Pizza: 

Chicago Diner II

Biscuits with "Sausage" & Gravy:

Chicago Diner III

Chocolate cookie dough and chocolate peanut butter shakes: 

Vegan Shakes

All of this was in preparation for the overnight bus to Minneapolis. Let's just say it was as horrible trip as you would expect from an overnight bus journey - stopping, lights on and loud announcements made seemingly every five minutes. We arrived at 7 am in the morning, so not much was happening. We couldn't check into our hotel until 11 am, so we walked around in a sleepy daze until 12 pm when we saw Burn After Reading. I thought Brad Pitt and George Clooney were very good, but I did find the story a little empty. 

That night we checked out Pizza Luce in Lynlake. We had to wait for about 30 minutes to get a table as it was so busy, and while the pizzas were ok, Plush can still not be beaten. We stopped in at the Bryant Lake Bowl, a combination bowling alley, restaurant, bar and theatre. It was straight out of the 50's and super cool:

And that night, we slept on a cloud (otherwise known as the bed at the Aloft Hotel):

Bed by you.
