Elise and I in Chicago

Elise recently tried out for the Voice out in Chicago. Was it cold out? Yes. How about standing at Navy Pier for two hours at 5am cold? Yes, very cold. We can bike in 10 degree weather with -6 windchill, but standing and not moving is the most terrible feeling. Needless to say, once she went inside to audition I was off to my cousin's condo to go back to sleep!

Poutine from Goose Island Brewery

My cousin Eric and I drinking soda flavored adult beverages!

And so begins the wait at 5am. Thermals, blankets, and even a sleeping bag around us to keep us warm!

I was waiting for an awesome sunrise but it never happened

The line went all way, and even off the pier

We had fun. We hit up Goose Island Brewery along with Revolution Brewery. Did some shopping on Michigan Avenue, had a big family dinner in Chinatown, then it was back home after that! Fun times with Elise and my family. So much fun in fact that my cousin came down this weekend and stayed with me one week later! Crazy good times in Benson, Alpine Inn, downtown, and even made it out to Desoto NWR to see the sunsent.

It's like a food Ikea


Crate and Barrel

And more eating!

Pops and I doing a selfie at the restaurant!

Squid. It wasn't all smiles after she bit into it! HA!

Now those are some big tires! Probably 40s?
