Chicago part 2

Lemon meringue

On day three of our Chicago visit we headed to Oak Park to take another look at the Unity Temple by Frank Lloyd Wright, which we’d both visited 10 years ago. It is as peaceful and beautiful as ever and is one of my favourite of his interiors. We ate a sandwich lunch at a local veg cafe, dined on vegan pizza and beer at Dimo’s and finished the day with a glass of wine at the bar across the road before bed.

The next day was also action packed with a visit to the FLW
Bach house in Rogers Park and lunch at the Heartland Cafe where Barack Obama launched his Senate campaign. The food was OK but not memorable.

That afternoon we did some vegan outreach, leafleting at a busy train station, where we handed out 1500 booklets in a couple of hours with some local activists.

We had dinner again at Karyn Cooked, this time we ate carrot and tofu stuffed crispy flautas with cashew sour cream, pico de gallo, guacamole and black beans and mushrooms on crispy polenta, followed by a lemon meringue pie and THAT GLAZED DONUT again.
