Crime scene

I really shouldn't let Florence eat raspberries unsupervised.

Girl and the Goat

No, this doesn't make me the goat.  We went to Girl and the Goat last night (baby sitter Jess to the rescue).  It's one of Chicago's best restaurants.  And was very good. 


We had roasted beets, roasted halibut, grilled chicken, fired lamb ribs, green garlic pierogies (I don't know so don't ask me) and goat belly with lobster.  Oh and we also had some cheese and pavlova.  Urgh.

It certainly wasn't cheap but I think it was probably good value.

Things I want to do whilst in Chicago

  • Eat a deep dish pizza. Tick!
  • Go to the baseball.  Tick!
  • Buy a hot dog from a street vendor
  • Fire a gun
  • Buy a news paper from one of those machines
  • Be involved in a high speed car chase through a narrow alleyway

I've found the alleyway... 

Gelato rose sculptures

On a walk after lunch on Saturday we found this ice cream shop.  They may the ice cream cones look like flowers.  It was pretty pricey but was impressive.   Style over substance though as it made not getting your hands covered in sticky ice cream virtually impossible.

New PB

New personal best!  Thrashed it.  And that's with a dodgy ankle.

No comment

There's an Indian restaurant near us called Gaylord.

Can I beat my lap time?

There's an athletics track close to our apartment so thought i'd do a lap.  I'll try and beat it tomorrow.

Allowed out to play

April's had a night out and an afternoon off the baby this past week so I was allowed out to play last night.  I decided to go to try out a few of the bars in the local area.

Some were good.

Some made me feel old

Some were great.

Ribs Sunday!

Is that a thing?  It is now.  We went to Southern Cut Barbecue yesterday for lunch and I had ribs.  We were supposed to go their on Saturday but decided against it.  With nothing in the house for lunch we popped in.

It was fine.  Not great, but fine.  The best part was the ability to order meat by the half pound.

I felt a little dirty after this
