Robin Richman
Robin Richman and her eponymous store are firmly established in Chicago's fashion scene. Her story began in 1997 with a line of hand-knitted jumpers and the opening of her store in order to display them. Summer was coming and Robing realised that the demand for knitwear during the warm months is rather weak. Therefore she needed to expand her range of goods. She contacted friends such as fashion icon Marc Le Bihan and the girls from the label Antipast and from then on also sold designs by other designers. In contrast to other boutiques Robin Richman does not want to chase fast moving trends but represent a selection of continuous styles. Her shoes, dresses, jewellery and accessories are offbeat and sometimes eccentric, they testify to a great extent of imagination and sometimes have a bit of patina. Today Richman sells fashion by more than 70 brands in her store - unfortunately that doesn't leave much time for her own knitwear line.

Museum Campus
The Museum Campus in Chicago is the equivalent to the Viennese Museumsquartier. A meaningful cluster of museums and a meeting point for everybody interested in the natural world. It is a fun public space and ideal excursion destination for the whole family. But let's take one a time: the size of the area right next to Lake Michigan is 23 hectares. There you will find three museums that all aim at making natural sciences understandable: the Adler Planetarium, the Shedd Aquarium and the Field Museum of Natural History. In accordance to the theme, the area is a park and recreation area for Chicago inhabitants and guests to relax. The campus is resting on a peninsula reaching out in to Lake Michigan, and is also one of the best vantage points to take in Chicago’s breathtaking skyline. Do not forget: the Soldier Field Football Stadium is also located within the area of the Museum Campus - yet another well-known place in Chicago for sporting events and concerts.

El Ideas
You got to love this concept. El Ideas only does one session per evening, it's a small but mighty venue with only 18 seats, got a fixed menu and one vision: 13 courses, excellent, light, elaborate, and a lot of fun - which has its price, however (100 euros). Phillip Foss' kitchen is open and the chef approaches his guests in regular intervals to collects some volunteers who will help with the preparations. During the sessions the cooks casually chat about the respective courses and how they got their inspiration for them. What's on the plates? Yellowtail mackerel with bottarga, smoked tuna and tapioka or - Foss' inevitable course - goose liver, chestnut mash, apple-calvados-foam and crispy chestnut muesli with five spices. When you're reading this, the dishes might not exist anymore, however. The kitchen constantly works out new creations.

Sofitel Chicago
Paris is flirting with Chicago. The French architect Jean-Paul Viguier has a special gift for the Windy City: an impressive landmark with French glamour, a mixture of cone and prism that widens to the top with a slight twist. The atmosphere is hip and comfortable at the same time, the best example for this is the lobby that combines the shiny design of the staircase with the cosy living room area as seating area. The colours of the modern and elegant rooms and suites alternate, from tinted honey shades to loud tones of blue. The walls are partly covered with sycamore wood. The suites have been enhanced with even more luxury but it never seems all too pretentious. Accordingly you can find a velvet sofa in the style of Ligne Roset and a Mies van der Rohe Barcelona chair. The restaurant Café des Architects serves modern cuisine with partly regional ingredients. As impressive as the architecture, so is the look of the dishes - perfect for a photo.
