Turns out Chicago IS my kind of town.
By a series of strange coincidences, FOUR of us birds were in Chicago this weekend. Here are some highlights from my trip.
Mario's Lemonade: SUPER delicious. AND we saw the Reverend Jesse Jackson there AND we ran into Mario himself who started the business when he was SIX YEARS OLD! He gave us a history of the neighborhood, including juicy details of many local characters. Was YOUR babysitter a hit man? What a coincidence. Mine neither.
Muddy Waters' house is for sale. We took a picture of his awesome doors.
There were a lot of Quinceanera's going on around the lake, every dress bigger and brighter than the next.
We went to a Cubs' game, where they predictably lost after blowing a lead. We contemplated hot dogs...
...and ate them.
What a great city. Thumbs up!
