Go Cubs, GO!

Enjoyed my first game of the season with dad, Jamers, and Uncle Stan. Did you know they serve a hot dog at Wrigley Field topped with macaroni and cheese, bacon, and caramelized onions?! Decadent and delicious :) Yummmm and fun!

1st Annual Food Truck Social

So unbelievably proud to be part of a team that creates truly magnificent experiences for guests of all ages to reconnect with Lincoln Park Zoo.

And more importantly, so blessed to have besties that come out to support and make it feel entirely worth while.

One for the record books :)

Hallas & Hall

This week I'm staying with my pal, Hal. The adorable pup to two of my buddies, Matt & Rebekah Werner. It's been hilarious to text them photos of our adventures and send nightly recaps (especially after I've had a few glasses of wine).

This seemingly innocent photo of Hal at the beach led to a whole bunch of laughs. I mean, are you serious with that red rocket dude?!?!?!

But in all seriousness, he is such a good dog and I truly enjoy the couch companionship. 

If only all single men would look at me this way ;)

Play Date with my Pops

My dad and I went to see The Life of Galileo at the Greenhouse Theater in Lincoln Park and I most definitely joined in the standing ovation at the end. It was, after all, closing night and it was, by all standards, an exceptional production. 

The Life of Galileo

Be sure to check out the Greenhouse Theater and participate in the revival of Lincoln Ave! So many awesome new bars and restaurants are filling the vacant store fronts that have been there since for far too long. 

And afterwards, do your life a favor and go to eat at The Red Lion. It is, hands down, my most favorite bar in the city of Chicago. My dad and I had the fish fry along with the poutine and brussel sprouts. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
