The queue for the building was massive, but I think the weather kept everyone away as it was a walk-on and I had the entire top deck to myself. Those glass Skywalk booths were really terrifying and awesome. The views even on a slightly overcast day were breathtaking.
It's funny you say that. Since I live in New York I avoid a lot of the New York tourist traps like the plague. I'd rather die than walk through Times Square and I generally avoid the Empire State Building but if I'm ever there on a cold winter night we usually end up going up there. Yes, it's cold but cold air means amazing visibility and night time + cold air means no lines. It's great. We took the in-laws up there once on a cold winter night and Brit and I were loving it but they're from the south and I think they almost froze to death, at one point we turned around and saw them huddled together reenacting the floating door scene from Titanic
. Then again, aren't the Chicago observation decks enclosed? Why would cold scare people away?

Honestly it tasted really fresh (I know the cheese was) and they had ovens right there. I'm sure it would have been marginally better elsewhere but it was convenient and we were short on time. I get the idea that I probably wouldn't have been a fan no matter what. Ten years ago I probably would have been, but I no longer have any tolerance for greasy food and that was some greasy a** pizza. It's sad really... f*ck I'm old.

Sh*t! I wish I knew about this. Oh well, next time I guess. Thanks for the tip!

Sounds interesting. Maybe I'll give it a shot. though...
If you're ever back in Chicago, make sure to hit up the South Side joint Vito and Nicks
. It's essentially the antithesis to typical Chicago-style pizza. It may be more up your alley.
THIS sounds more my speed.
I don't want to be the guy that goes to Chicago to eat New York style pizza, but I might have to be. lol

Lots of cool demos, keepers roaming around with animals, great displays, interesting animals, extremely clean inside and a great food court with a real deal Icee machine.
lol Boldikus was just telling me about this place yesterday. It's on our radar for sure!
