Nick Rosario coming at ya! If I were to make a list of the best sportscasters in town; Mark Giangreco would be at the top of my list. I had the pleasure of interviewing Mark back in 1998 for the first time and believe me I am still laughing today at some of the things he said. I found him to be the same off camera as he is on camera. He is light hearted and quick witted. Mark was definitely one of my favorite interviews. He even admitted to watching General Hospital. Now there’s a guy who is not afraid to share.
Hey! It’s Gina Ferraro here. My trip to The Skydeck Ledge at the Willis Tower was unforgettable. Randy Stancik, the GM of the Skydeck was kind enough to hold my hand as I walked out onto the glass bottomed-Skydeck. What a rush!! There’s only 6 inches of glass separating me from the streets of Chicago. It is a heart stopping experience, but I highly suggest you do it. Everything told me “don’t step out there,” but Randy eased my mind and did it with me.
When you go, be sure and kneel on the glass. That’s an entirely different feeling than just standing. Plus, after you conquer the Skydeck make sure to show everyone the photos. Your friends and family will be so impressed– or they will get queasy, like my Dad did!!
This is a MUST-SEE in Chicago tourism… even if you are afraid of heights, it’s an unbelievable out-of-body experience that can’t be duplicated. I dare you to take the plunge 🙂 and if you need a hand to hold I’ll go out on the ledge with you!

It’s a bird, it’s a plane…it’s something big and white in the skyline! The giant white bubble hovering over Navy Pier is it’s latest attraction. The AeroBalloon lets you float 350 feet above the lakefront. You can get high for $25 and for 8-10 minutes before you need to firmly plant your feet back on land. Don’t worry you won’t drift away because the state-of-the-art helium balloon is tethered to the ground while you are harnessed inside. Be sure to check the weather, because you won’t be flying in rain or wind. Go for a ride before summer is over-it’s a great way to test your fear of heights.
