During the last week of April2011, 24 members of our AAUW family members and friendds toured the vibrant city of Chicago. One highlight of the trip was the Tommy Gun’s Garage Dinner Theatre – a recreation of a roaring 20’s speakeasy with gangsters and flappers from the prohibition era. This interactive musical revue captured everyone’s imagination with music and comedy reminiscent of the time. At the Field Museum the group learned about the burial traditions of Ancient Egypt as they toured a replica of an underground tomb containing over 20 mummies. Next members visited the home and studio of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright to view samples of his Prairie Style architecture. His innovative designs emphasized the use of interior light and open spaces in low, earth-hugging buildings that earned him international acclaim. On the last day, the warmth and sunshine invited us to lunch outdoors on the famous Navy Pier to view beautiful Lake Michigan. The trip ended with a visit to the John Hancock Building, one of the top five attractions in Chicago, where we delighted in magnificent views of the city complemented by an audio tour. Our trip to Chicago will be remembered for the amazing sights we experienced and for the times we spent laughing, talking, and building friendships.
