We enjoyed a gorgeous weekend in Chicago. After thunderstorms Friday night, the weather was perfect. Keith had to do some work Saturday morning, so I went to the farmer’s market. These pickled beets are delicious! We enjoyed lunch on the patio at Pierrot Gourmet, ran some errands, and walked around Old Town. There’s a spice store that we never go to, but the door was open Saturday so we checked it out. Keith was thrilled to find sumac. He ate it with every meal while we were in Turkey, and now the fun can begin again in Chicago. We also spent some time relaxing in Lincoln Park and playing fetch with the cutest little Cockapoo!
By far the highlight of our weekend was dinner at Bavette’s Saturday night. It is one of our favorite restaurants, and we went to celebrate our anniversary. They sat us at the cutest little corner table, and we enjoyed cocktails, oysters, delicious food, and great conversation. It was so fun to get dressed up for a special night out. We were moving a little slower Sunday morning, but it was well worth it.
Today I am headed to New York for lunch with a client, but then it’s back to Chicago this evening for the rest of the week. Nothing like a Monday day trip to get the week started!
