Lincoln Square















 Very dog friendly, I like that.













This is where I would love to live, right off the square.



The minute you step into Lincoln Square, is like being back home in Germany. Nostalgia takes over. We visitited the famous Merz Apotheke, the Chicago Brauhaus, and Gene's Sausage Shop & Delicatessen with its roof top wine and beer garden. To me it felt like strolling in my home town, couldn't get enough of it. Have to go back there, soon.

Listened to the german band at the Brauhaus play some bavarian music for me, while enjoying a big Brezn and a Weizn. Strolled into the Merz Apotheke with its wonderful aromas and couldn't get enough of all the goodies at the Delicatessen.

We had a wonderful afternoon. The square even has a fountain at its center, where something seems to be going on every weekend. Have to go back there, so much more to see. Want to visit the book store and second hand shops, just ran out of time.

Sadly enough, most Germans moved out of the area, to the suburbs, but the flair still remains.

Hope you enjoy the pics.

Have a great week!
