We headed up to Chicago Wednesday evening and made it just in time for a late dinner with Katherine, Matt, Natalie, Greg, Matt's sister Beth, and a couple of Katherine and Matt's close friends. Dinner was at The Publican and was amazing (especially the aged hams).
Hot Doug's for my first ever Chicago Dog experience. We got there early knowing that there would be a long line.
Apparently the duck fat fries are amazing, but we went on a Thursday and they only serve the fries on Friday, so we missed out on them. It was still delicious, however.
Natalie had some art work showing at a gallery, so Nik and I headed down there with Nik's parents Thursday afternoon to check it out. Natalie does papercutting and it's absolutely amazing. For this show, she made globes.
That night was friends night, so we met up at one of Matt & Katherine's favorite bars, then headed over to their friend, Jackson's, condo (and his amazing rooftop!).
