I took a mini vacation last week and spent 4 days in Chicago to see a bestie…and eat.
As soon as I landed I started off with Giordanos stuffed pizza. Then we took an arhitectural boat tour, followed by dinner and drinks, and visiting the Nutella Bar in Eataly.
Friday consisted of more food, day drinking on the way walking to wrigley field for a Cubs game. Pouring rain for an hour and yours truly got hammered on 3 beers (one of them was 8% in my defense). Dinner at Purple Pig was really late and we must have walked for miles.
Saturday: 3 straight hours of torrential downpour. So much for a run around the lake. We went to WestFest and a Burger Fest where Jen ate too much, got drunk again, and made my lactose intolerant friends eat Wisconsin Cheese Curds. On the way home we hit the best drunk food spot called Cheesies Pub & Grub and consumed the BEST grilled cheese sandwiches, washed down with a cocktail.
Sunday, I was hurting and bloated so we just went to Skydeck at the Sears Tour for breathtaking views, Taste of Chicago (overpriced) and went to a good gastropub to see the World Cup Final.
What a great little time away from reality…
