Good morning, friends! This morning will be a short post… I’m trying to get it typed before Brandon wakes up (uh-oh, I can hear him stirring in the other room… better hurry up! ).
Yesterday in Chicago was a great day. After visiting “The Taste“, we headed back to our hotel to get cleaned up. But on the way back, we ran in to an amazing group of street performers.
They were very talented and very funny.
I took some video, too, because the pictures just don’t do them justice… but it might take me some time to figure the video thing out. So for now, you’ll just have to use your imagination.
We then went back to the hotel and got showered. I was finally feeling human again, and I was excited to get pretty-ed up for dinner.
We decided to check out Pizzeria Uno for some authentic Chicago-style deep dish pizza.
At Pizzeria Uno, they take your pizza order at the same time that you put in your name for a table. The pizza takes about an hour to make, so by the time you get to sit down, your food is almost ready!
When they sat us down, they sat us at a very small table that was very, very, very close to another group of 6. The one poor girl was practically eating dinner with us!
But we didn’t care because we were just ready to eat!
The pizza came out in a sizzling skillet.
We ordered simple pepperoni… we like to go with the classics.
Obviously we liked it because we ate it all! We each only had two pieces but that was plenty… we were stuffed.
Then we headed over to the Redhead Piano Bar for some live entertainment. It’s an upscale establishment that normally requires “formal attire.” But evidently they decided to allow anyone in this weekend because it was the 4th of July (we heard the bartenders talking).
After the woman at the door looked over my ID with a finetooth comb (I think she found it extremely hard to believe that I was 27!), we were let through the door. We enjoyed the live music for about an hour, but then we were both ready for bed!
Today we’re meeting up with my friend Sara for lunch before heading to Wrigley field for a baseball game. It’s going to be another great day!
