Perfect Saturday

adminUncategorized%s Comments


It’s mid-October and 70 degrees outside today. Chicagoans, now is the time to spend all day outside- go for walks, run on the lake, maybe do some day drinking in a beer garden- and tuck this day away in the memory bank to bring out when it’s frigid in February. Winter is coming but it ain’t here today. Today is perfect.

Happy Saturday, friends.

Chicago q

It’s late October and we ate brunch outside today.  That sheer awesome’ness of this weather is not lost on me so dining al fresco, we did.

Chicago q in the Gold Coast with it’s cozy outside seating was just the spot.

My pick?  A pulled chicken sandwich served with 4 sauces and cornbread.  Ryan devoured brisket and fries, dipped in ketchup that he was convinced was homemade (our server looked at us like we were idiots when we asked).  Add a mimosa and a ginger bourbon fizz into the mix and we were hooked.

Eating anywhere outside today would be amazing but I seriously cannot wait to tuck back into q, next time for the mac and cheese, maybe when it’s more scarf and earmuff season- cozy inside AND outside can’t be beat.
