I didn't think I'd ever use "rich" to describe popcorn, but it is accurate here. The Garrett Mix -- cheese corn and caramel corn mixed -- is wonderful and buttery and yes, rich.

Had heard from friends that it was the best popcorn ever, so had to try it. They were right, it was awesome! Caramel and cheddar mix. My only complaint is that it is pricey, but I guess you pay a lot at the movie theater...More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.

The earlier, the better. However, there is usually a line out the door. Don't fret, it moves pretty fast. It is worth the wait!
