On our recent trip to Chicago we ate, drank, made merry, paid our annual visit to the Busy Beaver Button Museum and also found time to visit some of the city's wonderful parks.
We have lost count of the number of times an enticing shopfront has lured us to an unsatisfactory experience. Happily the dancing hot dogs atop Superdawg are just the beginning of a treat which is as overwhelming for the eyes as it is the stomach.
At Busy Beaver they don't just make buttons* in their milions - round, square, metallic, oval - they love them too. Such is their devotion that the company's beautiful new building now houses its own button museum.
