The Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois cost $4,000,000 to construct and is located at the northern mouth of the Chicago River.  It extends 3000 feet out into Lake Michigan and is about 300 feet wide.  It is used for both recreation and civic purposes.


  1. Look at those rates. Can you say "inflation"?

    I saw Ranney in THE BOMB-ITTY at Chicago Shakes on the Navy Pier. I also nearly gave myself a heart attack with a Bailey's shake from the Haagen-Dazs. I can't remember the name of the restaurant downstairs where we all ate. I had some fried shrimp that one of the producers sweared were the best ever. (I liked the seasoning, but I prefer batter to breading.)

  2. When I read those room rates to Brad we had a good laugh.
