Excitement in the Air

| September 10, 2010 | 1 Comment

The brand new John Hancock is certainly stirring excitement since they re-opened the observatory’s new look. This past Tuesday, Chicagonista LIVE! Show was broadcasted from there and we featured the many upgrades that are implemented. Locals are kept in mind with all their many upgrades such as Annual Passes, Café, cocktails, wifi, and more. You can watch the taped live show again at Chicagonistalive.com

But that’s not all; we attended a press viewing of the upcoming “Skating in The Sky” ice rink replica that will be open to public on January 2011 running until March 31, 2011. From 9:00-11:00 pm, for just $5, you’ll get to skate for 25 minutes 1,000 feet up on the 94th floor overlooking our beautiful city! It will surely be breathtaking!

Disney On Ice's Cinderalla and Prince Charming entertained us at the Press Event
