It was a nice day, especially for Chicago, so we decided to take a walk up Michigan Avenue on the way back to the hotel. We walked along the park quite a ways, and came across the Spertus Institute, a distinctive building face, to say the least. One of CVH’s guidebooks recommended it, and the Spertus website welcomed us to come visit.
CVH didn’t want me to mention that she does work with the Jewish community in Louisville; I’m not sure why not. But perhaps we should have. Because when we asked for the tour and to visit the shop, the receptionist gave us a long look over and told us the Institute was not open to visitors that day. So if you go, plan to have a good story ready.
