WHAT TO DO WITH A DAY OFF?
Well, Saturday morning I went to Wildberry Pancake House with my wife for a nice big breakfast. Great minds must think alike, because while waiting in line to be seated we ran into Hunt, Connauton and their better halves. So, we joined up and crushed some unreal food. I went with scrambled eggs, chicken-apple sausage and the banana bread french toast. Fair to say I didn’t need lunch that day. After that, I got my ears lowered at the high-end establishment, Supercuts! My go-to lady there is Africa and she cuts a tight do.
After that, my wife and I took our dog, MO, on a lengthy walk around our neighborhood, which MO really enjoyed, because it gave him a chance to hang out with some of his bros.
Saturday night we had our team rookie party in downtown Chicago, which is always a fun night! It acts as sort of an initiation for rookies as the team goes out for a nice meal and fun night on the newcomers’ dime. It’s always a great night when all the boooyyss get a chance to go out together as a team.
Sunday was a typical casual day, not a lot of activity, mostly watching football!
On Monday, my wife and I headed into the city for dinner! We also had to pick up a dress she had on hold, SHOCKER, but nonetheless it was a good excuse to try a new spot for dinner. The traffic was it’s usual pain the butt, still can’t understand how it can move so slow without some kind of fender bender or construction. Fair to say I had a bit of road rage at some slower moving vehicles.
A little over an hour later we arrived at this little joint called Mitty Nice, which turned out to be a great choice. It had an inviting atmosphere accompanied by excellent food. Would definitely go back there! As many of you know, Monday night was pretty chilly and walking around downtown felt pretty cold. The best thing to do when you’re walking around cold is to grab some hot chocolate, which we did, from Ghirardelli’s. Actually, it turned out to a decent night for a walk, as we were both bundled up with our hot chocolate strolling down Michigan Avenue as the first few snowflakes of winter started to fall.
For those of you that think I’m crazy, might I remind you I’m from Canada and enjoy winter (to an extent).
