So, I’m wondering why my pants are still feeling so uncomfortably tight. Maybe is the residual effect of all of those Chicago calories…
My double-cheezeborger from Billy Goat Tavern and Da Billy Goat Lager. Jen and I were inspired by Rachel’s 100 Stranger’s project. (Jen leaves for Amsterdam today and I’m still in Chicago) Rachel always gets the best stories to go with her portraits. Unfortunately we didn’t get this gentleman’s name or any interesting facts about him. But I think it has emboldened me to take more of these kinds of photos.
My first taste of a macaroon from the Alliance Bakery. Even though I ate 5 of them (there were so many flavors to choose from), I have concluded that I am not a big fan of the macaroon. I realize that it’s not politically correct to say that out loud, and I risk a public flogging for my opinion. I’m going to stand by it though – macaroons are pretty, but I don’t think they are the greatest food item on earth.
However, our late night dinner from Fox & Obel, consumed in our room – that was delicious! Roasted beet salad with goat cheese, crusty bread, wine and some seal salt chocolate caramels. This was our proverbial last supper before we said good-bye to Chicago. It’s a good thing it’s warming up and I can strap on the running shoes, cause I’ve got a lot of calories to burn off.
