Our friends at Choose Chicago are trying to prove that their bean (Cloud Gate) is better. They are wrong. Nevertheless, they sent us a little gift package welcoming our "newborn" bean; even though, our bean was actually sculpted first... and, is better. Obviously. Well, being that we are super-hospitable, we decided to take Chicago Bean on a tour of…
