Happy Birthday, John!
Today was John's birthday. He has been very sad about this birthday as friends who were going to get tickets for the Neil Diamond concert in Green Bay today were unable to get them.
I planned something even better, though. We started the day by
taking an Architecural tour of the Chicago River. Then we strolled around Millenium Park, and saw "the Bean". The sculpture is actually called Cloud Gate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_Gate) and is even better in person than in pictures.
We had lunch at the Grill at Millenium Park, as well as cocktails, and then headed over to the Bank of America Theater (formerly known as the Shubert Theater) to see Jersy Boys (http://www.jerseyboysinfo.com/broadway/). What a great show that was, hearing the music of our youth! We ended the evening by having birthday cake and ice cream back at my house. I think he really enjoyed his special day, and admitted that this was much better than seeing Neil Diamond.
