TWO weekends left to spend together here in Chicago.
this one, and the next one.
(the third weekend, Nick has a conference in Arizona...
...the fourth weekend, we're moving!)
so Friday night, we tried out the new French restaurant in our 'hood
we had duck, rabbit, venison...and some delicious cocktails.
then we walked down the street to the Greenhouse Theater
and saw a very moving performance of "Agnes of God"
maybe you were around in 1985 and saw the movie version with Jane Fonda?
me neither. (i mean, i was around...i just missed the movie.)
my point is, it was good.
we got our weekend's dose of culture..and talked about it all the way home.
Saturday morning, we woke up and walked down the street
to the Bourgeois Pig Cafe
and dreamed about tea
(not a joke. we really did.)
we can take the eL there from our neighborhood
and have been talking about going for MONTHS.
this was our last shot.
so to Chinatown we went...for some dim sum.
|Chicago's Chinatown...from the Red Line eL stop.|
|tea. with lipstick.|
|some kind of dumpling. don't ask me what. it was delish.|
|cuttlefish. in curry sauce.|
in case you're not quite as brave/stupid as me, lemme save you the effort....they taste like weird, mini calamari. super chewy. jury's still out on how i feel about them.
|he loves this beanie. i'm still on the fence. but i'll take him. with or without it. (:|
|lucky dragons on the lightpost|
|this one is for my baby bro. he loves crabs.|
|fishies. you can imagine how this market smelled.|
|he is pissed. the candies he bought were in a wrapper that proved IMPOSSIBLE to remove.|
i tried to nab some that my lovely photog bestie took of me off Facebook
but now it seems fb has made that impossible.
so you'll just have to wait to see what i look like this week...
and since this is what our new apartment looks like with someone ELSE'S stuff in it,
we figured we should look for some stuff of our own
|ain't it purty?? we can.not.wait.|
i actually got my husband to walk around the furniture department of Macy's
without ANY coercion.
or promise of sexual favors.
we finished up the day by watching some March Madness with some beers
then we tried out another new restaurant
GT Fish & Oyster
it has been open THREE days. we felt a little like rockstars.
we ate our fill of oysters and mussels
perfectly accompanied by a bottle of wine
with cocktails for dessert
then we promptly got into a monstrous fight on the way home.
like, full on bawling and hysterics (me), yelling (him and me), throwing things (me. it was one shoe.).
it was epic.
well folks, that's how it goes.
marriage can really blow sometimes.
and if it sounds like we boozed our way through the day,
(i'm sure this had nothing to do with the fight)
how was YOUR weekend, loves?
