A busy weekend, although yesterday was spent at home sorting 'stuff' out, waiting on deliveries and annoyingly watching a plumber struggle fitting a new toilet (don't ask!). So no toilet last night fortunately we have another plus there is always the balcony. He's just come back looking exceptionally hassled to fix it. He better is all I'm going to say.
Friday night some friends found this superb little restaurant
out in Logan Square, west of downtown. There was no menu, the chef just noted the wine we brought with us as it wasn't licensed, and worked a menu around it. Ingenious.
Saturday we were up and out and got the train down to a small lakeside beach town called Long Beach
in Indiana to spend a glorious day with some friends. We were on the last very slow electric train back to the city Saturday night, so we could get a load of stuff done on Sunday plus some how cram in two street festivals, one was our local River North Summerfest
, which was certainly bigger than ever before and then Sunday night we met some friends at the Taste of Randolph Street
. A part of town commonly known as Restaurant Row there was some fine outdoor fare and we caught Josh Ritter
live on stage, who was good. Very Bob Dylan-esque.
Oh and Sunday lunchtime I played footie in the midday heat and scored in what was sadly my penultimate game. Crazy golf is on the agenda today, although it will be muggins here that'll be crazy if I have nowhere to pee tonight!Update 6pm:
I'm going to kill my bathroom contractor.
