Took a long scenic walk to El Chilito for some tacos and iced lattes this morning. We slept for about 10 hours and it felt awesoooome. We sat out by the pool and had some beers. Then got drinks downtown and had dinner at Lambert's, a cool, sorta fancy bbq place. It was pretty amazing, except Laura paid $33 for scallops and got 3.........3 SCALLOPS. Geez. But the place was really modern/hipstery looking. Downtown is so different now. Although, I haven't really explored it in 15 years. We stopped at Prohibition Creamery (where they have booze in the ice cream!!!). I just got a chocolate shake but I was already boozed up enough. then home to watch TV. Yay Sunday!

Day 1 in Austin! No long security lines, no flight delays! Yayyyy! I slept pretty hard on the plane after not sleeping much last night. We stayed with my oldest friend Laura and her husband Noah. They took us to a great place for breakfast tacos. So goooood! We hung out at their house and then headed to Jester King, a brewery with a ton of open land. They have a covered barn area and outside areas where you can drink your beer. There's the bar and then another separate area for food. Aaaaaaaaahhhhhh, it was all delicious. They should open places like this in Chicago but there's just not enough space in the city. We chilled at home tonight and watched the Cubs. Such a great game!!! Cubs are going to the World Series!! First time in 71 years. I wish I could be home in Chicago but I'm kinda glad to be away from the madness. Go Cubs Go!

CUUUUUUBS!! They won tonight and have one more win til the World Series!! Mary Beth and I watched at Avenue Tavern. Omg, so exciting! It's great to see the city so positive and also anxious. Even if we don't go to the World Series (I probably just jinxed us), it will still be exciting and next season will be amazing. Go Cubbies!!!

Mid-October and the high today was 83. This weather messes with my allergies!!! I'm excited for some crisp, cool weather finally. I visited AJ after work and then met Kelly at Intelligentsia. Gideon made a new lady friend who was the cutest thing I've ever seen. The only way I can think to describe her is round. Her face, her eyes, her hair. So cuuuuute. Then Gideon started running around Intelly like a crazy person and we knew it was time to leave :)

Here are some pics from the Gilda's Club event last night! So much fun and really casual. They had some Second City people come to perform during interviews of local celebs. Good times. And here are some pics from Brewster Apts and the Elks memorial during the Chicago Open House. Then to Intelligentsia to hang with friends and Begyle Brewery for AJ's friend's bday. This weekend for the win!!
