This past December, Fine Art America left the sunshine of California to brave the cold and snow of Chicago. Our trip started with working several days in the heart of the Windy City, but always with a local Intelligentsia coffee in hand. One of our lunch specials included deep dish pizza atGiordano’s, something that we could not pass up.

After working a few days we had our annual company holiday party. Picked up by a limo, we went to dinner at The Boarding House, where we all tried a Gin Fizz for the first time (the scallops are delicious by the way).

We started our entertainment for the night by going to Second City Comedy Club where many well-known comedians got their start. “Let Them Eat Chaos” included a great line up of up-and-coming comedians.

After laughing for hours, We made a pit stop at Untitled where we enjoyed listening to a live band and sipping on another gin drink, Gin Bubbly. And the night ended with rocking out to Steel Panther at The House of Blues.

For our final day we explored all the great sites in the city including the Chicago Art Institute, the Bean, and Michigan Ave. More pictures from our adventure to follow!

Here are some of our favorite images of Chicago from our Fine Art America artists!
