Chicago ‘s Finest Glow for the Holidays pt one

As a special treat, I am giving my readers a small taste of life in the big city. Chicago is a major tourist mecca and no where is this more true than the places that pamper tourists and business people when they visit here. Naturally, all of the major hotels put on their holiday best for the season. So whether you are trimming a tree or lighting a menorah, enjoy these sights from the lobby of the legendary Drake Hotel.

what a gorgeous tree in the lobby of the Drake Hotel

a picturesque village at christmas time

the menorah reminds of the Macabees and the miracle of the oil lasting eight nights

beautiful poinsettias  remind me of my late mother

The elegant Palm Court is the perfect place for afternoon tea and treats after shopping on the Mag Mile
