Christkindlmarket in Chicago

If you haven't been to the Christkindlmarket in downtown Chicago, you should really take a trip down to the Daley Center and check it out. There's a bunch of small shops with German cuckoo clocks, tiny handcrafted German houses, and plenty of potato pancakes and bratwursts. It's actually pretty tiny for how much it's advertised ...
