Finals are done and Winter break is here! What better way to celebrate the end of the semester than exploring the beautiful city of Chicago. I was very excited to visit the Art Institute after finishing a semester of Art History. The last time I took a trip to the museum was Junior year of high school. But after learning so much about the symbolism and deeper meaning behind each paining, I’ve found a new form of respect for the beauty that surrounds us. I truly have. What helps even more is that I had an amazing professor teaching me. After the Institute my friend and I headed to Bar Toma near Michigan and Pearson.
Quick fact: My uncle has a brick oven in his backyard and we always make our own pizzas there. Pizza’s at his place are #1 in my book, oh my goodness; the BEST pizza I have tasted in MY ENTIRE LIFE. But after today, I can honestly say Bar Toma comes in very close to stealing my love for pizza at my uncle’s place. Bar Toma was absolutely phenomenal. And they have a S’mores Pizza. Yup, you heard that right.
