Ok, finally getting to the Chicago recap!! These pictures are way out of order but it's the best I can do.
Saturday night we enjoyed some blues at Kingston Mines. I have been to Chicago's House of Blues before but this was the real deal.
Friday night we had dinner at Carnivale. This place was amazing - really great atmosphere, fun menu and amaxing food. I could eat there every weekend but my checking account couldn't handle that. :)
This is Brad's braised short ribs with grits/polenta. It was like butter...
Brad getting ready for his exam. Ha. I don't think he trusts Megan to work on his teeth. Only because she has a lot of revenge she can exact on him. :)
Megan's vegetable empanadas at Carnivale.
Adi's pork chop at Carnivale.
Eric 'the guitar' Smith at Kingston Mines. He played a lot of cover songs which was actually kind of cool.
On Saturday, we visited the free (!) Lincoln Park Zoo in their neighborhood and then headed to Wrigleyville. We got to see the stadium and went barhopping to catch all the football games. We went to Goose Island (local beer that is fab), Vines on Clark, John Barleycorn's, and others.
We were right at the famous io theatre as well. We thought about going to see an improv show but hit the Blues bar instead.
