Since my last personal entry, times have been busy! Chicago is proving to be a great city with lots of exciting weather patterns and incredible food. Our waistlines aren’t telling the tale just yet, but if we keep eating like we are, I have no doubts we will be fat little porkers.
Here are some of my faves in Chicago thus far:
We’ve found a local pub where we get 20% off every bill, where we routinely eat BBQ Pulled Pork Nachos and where they have the hottest wings known to man (Jake Melnick’s).
We’ve found our favorite pizza joint where it literally melts in your mouth (Lou Malnati’s);
A great local beer (Goose Island’s 312 - named after the Chicago area code);
Amazing Indian food – for Jock when he misses English cooking (Veerasway);
An Irish pub that costs more than most fancy restaurants, but whose authentic Irish chef keeps us coming back for more. Plus, they were one of the only places open during the biggest snow storm Chicago has seen since the 1960′s. (Fado’s Irish Pub.)
This winter, it snowed. A lot!
But before that, there was a nice respite of a lot of Miami sun!
We have a LOT of weddings over the next year planned. Cities or Countries that will be on our agenda in 2011 for weddings are as follows:
New Orleans (Bachelorette party this weekend)
So excited to be doing a lot of traveling. Yes, it won’t be a cheap year, but who would turn down any of these places for a good party with our best friends?
