Good Morning Internet,
I had an awesome mini-vacation in Chicago this weekend that included a great food, great beer, a hockey game and a very brisk run on LSD (Lake Shore Drive. Bwahahaaa).
And, for those of you who think all hot dogs are just pork by-products (“lips and assholes”), I’ll have you know that Portillo’s dogs are steamed, all beef hot dogs; so, slightly more healthy – and MUCH better tasting – than your average dog.
Here’s the Blackhawks game we lost on Sunday night – boooo. But to be honest, I don’t follow hockey like I do baseball and football, so I had a BLAST and really wasn’t all that disappointed about the loss. (Sorry Hawks!)
And, after a night of beer drinking, I’m proud to say I got up at 8 a.m. and went running on the lakefront path! The friends we stayed with in Chicago live just a couple of blocks from Lake Shore so I pretty much just ran straight out of their apartment and hit the path. It was awesome.
I love the food in Chicago. It seems like there is a Greek diner on every corner – and I haven’t found one yet that didn’t have awesome food and outstanding coffee…
After the run we went to the Melrose Cafe and I had the Green Eggs and Ham – the “green” was basil…
Then I made hubby take me to Binny’s – the beer mecca of the midwest. They just have a lot of awesome stuff I can’t find in Indy.
- a Rogue Mocha Porter
- a New Holland Pilgrim’s Dole Barley Wine
- an Avery Collaboration, Not Litigation Ale
- a Brew Dog Hardcore IPA
- a Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye
- and an unpictured Hop Stoopid from Lagunitas that I drank yesterday. =)
Today’s looking like a trail run in Eagle Creek. One of my heels has been sliding like crazy in my new trail shoes – just one! weirdy… – so I’m off to find an insert to keep that sucker cozy in there.
Have a great day –
