Chicago, In and Out

We scored a rare round trip on Friday, hauling audio-visual equipment from Atlanta to Chicago and back again. The first delivery, in Chicago, took place on Monday morning right on the Magnificent Mile. I had a great time taking pics while Hoss drove.

We even ran into a couple of landmark eateries on our way back to the truckstop, including Al's Italian Beef:

And a list of Blues Brothers movie locations.
