but then I see how it works out when I go back to the calendar and why it is so difficult to keep track of our lives - which I refer to as over scheduled....
So starting where the last blog post left off with Hannah & Martin... we had dinner with friends the following night (Mike & Leslie) at our place (carry in sushi) and then dinner at friends house (Kevin & Shari) for the holiday weekend where we had a magnificent meal -
caesar salad bites and fresh oysters (we had them with chipotle bourbon sauce too!
some of the wines
Thai spiced watermelon crab soup- OMG!
amazing filet and outstanding smashed fingerling potatoes!
the last slice of cake - with the dessert wine (above)
then we went to an annoying play at Northlight- called Into the Breeches - seriously lame vaudeville-esque not worth the time...
the next night we went to Georges Trois with friends (Ron & Mary) and had a lovely evening...
then the following night we went to hear John Flynn in concert at WFMT and out to dinner with friends (Ron & Mary & Nan) for pizza at Fat Chris'
then our next event was Jeong with friends (Sheila & Mary) another wonderful dinner at Dave Park's table!
Then on to another play - this one a cute and sentimental music based story of the 2016 Cubs Miracle team- world series champions!
Then the next night to 2C Chicago (with Paige and Sharad) where we had a fun fun fun evening -
then the next night Phil went to a concert at WFMT and I met up with him and Ron & Mary at Jibek Jolu for a post concert dinner -
this babe is Julian Ovenden - who played Margo's love interest Bill Sampson - a distinct improvement over Gary Merrill in the film...
so maybe you get it why I am not such a regular poster these days - my sincerest apologies if you are anxiously awaiting my every word LOL like that night ever happen- but I do my best to keep up... tonight dinner with Jenny at Chengdu Impressions nearby... and then tomorrow a new place with friends Todd & Evelyn (French food - seafood of Brittany and Normandy- we'll see.....) onward we go!
