Chasing Sunsets

If you asked me what my favorite hobby is, it’s chasing sunsets.  The only thing that is guaranteed to happen everyday and be different every single time no matter where you are.  Sometimes, they don’t set your soul ablaze as much as their best days but if you need to see magic and have a reason to smile, it’s the cheapest therapy around.

These are some of my favorite sunset captures from my travels all around Florida and a few outside of Florida.

1.   LondonHouse – 21st & 22nd floors

85 E Wacker Dr, Chicago, IL 60601

I know how important it is to book early and still it slipped my mind until a week before our trip.  At that point, the only thing I could reserve was an 11AM table on Thursday.  The weekend was already sold out a week before.  Probably the most popular one we went to, I managed to score a sunset booking when they called to confirm my reservation.  Yes, always ask for what you really want when you have the opportunity.  Be sweet as sugar and you might just get it. 

My 11AM time ultimately was cancelled due to rainy weather.  The rooftop was closed.  I still had hope for my sunset time.  Another miss though, we sat in the restaurant for a little while, then up to the rooftop to take some pics.  My hopes for this iconic sunset on the river were dashed.  But the drinks were good, service was okay, and I did get to see the rooftop, so the goal was accomplished.  I ordered a second drink – French Martini but it never showed up and I didn’t bother asking for it again.

Overall, it’s a bit more pretentious and definitely turns into a club setting on the weekend with people waiting in line for the elevator.  One elevator becomes designated for this with a host stationed at the beginning of it.  If you are staying at the hotel, no worries, that line does not affect your ability to get to your room.
