Our time in Chicago

September 28, 2015

plane flying above

We’re back from Chicago! I am jet lagged to the eyeballs but wanted to sit down and write a bit about our trip before we have dinner and fall asleep again. We landed at 7.30am this morning (1.30am in our brains), picked up Ras on the way home (he pooped in his box as we were pulling up outside our house. Thanks for that…) and then headed up to bed for a ‘strategic nap’, as Trout put it. A few hours later it’s been a confusing day but we’ve done a big food shop and the laundry is on so we’re slowly getting back into the swing of things. Kiiiind of regretting not taking tomorrow off work, but let’s see how it goes…

6.30am on our first morning in Chicago. We ended up going to bed at 7.30pm on the evening that we landed, we couldn’t keep our eyes open a minute longer. We had dinner at Native Foods and I stared at the menu for about 15 minutes unable to read it or make any kind of decision, so we knew it wasn’t going to be an eventful first night! And by the way, their ‘chicken’ is amazing. Seriously. It freaked me out how much it reminded me of chicken. But food will come in another post – for now, here’s what we got up to.

^^Us being total punk-venue-tourist-geeks outside the Fireside Bowl!^^

^^One evening we went to see The Sandlot being played on the top of a Whole Foods roof. It was so much fun! I’d never heard of this film before, but it was really good and obviously a classic I completely missed!^^

So that was our time in Chicago! It’s a great city, with so much to do and see. I definitely recommend going to see some sports – the ice hockey was crazy! There were fights, everyone stood up for the national anthem, and the Blackhawks one so everyone was super happy. Is there anything else you would recommend that we missed? Stay tuned for everything that we ate while we were there!
