It was time for a bit of celebration.  The COVID19 pandemic seemed to be under somewhat better control, and people might soon be out on the town!

In anticipation of this, the Space Alien decided to enjoy a fabulous brunch in the exquisite lobby of Chicago’s famous Peninsula Hotel, before the expected crowds arrived.

The chef was thrilled to learn that the Space Alien would soon enjoy some of his delicious creations!

The Space Alien, in turn, was thrilled to greet the chef and his staff and to enjoy an unparalleled view of Chicago's world famous "Magnificent Mile!"

The decisions facing the Space Alien were difficult:  

The Smoked Salmon Benedict looked delicious and the Space Alien considered it carefully, with its English Muffin topped with two poached farm eggs, smoked salmon, hollandaise sauce, chives and lemon!  

The price was no problem as the Space Alien was always the welcome guest of a delighted management!


But the health conscious Space Alien also considered the  Peninsula Spa Breakfast, with organic low-fat yogurt, seasonal berries, a healthful muffin, and an egg white fritatta with spinach, asparagus, kale and avocado. 

At last the Space Alien opted for the Buffet, with so many wonderfully delicious and healthful choices!   

It was a lovely morning for the Space Alien!
