Look at this pulled pork pot pie. It has wee pastry pig on top of it. It was delicious!
This is Patrick and Carly. We hung out at a live lit/storytelling event last week.
This is my friend Sam. Her eyeglasses game is strong.
This is my friend Lisa. She threw a super fun 10th anniversary party for Chicagoist, the blog of which is she Associate Editor. Lisa has amazing hair and is an incredible person.
I looked after the cats of some friends last week. On our last night together, I made cat circles. I think the circles were just a little too big. The cats were indifferent.
This is the U of C pep band playing “Livin’ on A Prayer” at Homecoming last weekend. There were corn dogs and temporary tattoos and walking tacos and grilled meat and a football game and lots of beer. It was super fun.
These are the insanely attractive people who showed up for 20×2 Chicago at Schubas.
Carly and I went to Uncle Mike’s Place for Filipino breakfast on Sunday. It’s one of our things. We’re trying to get a lot of things in before she moves to Algonquin and our new thing becomes going to Culver’s (OMG I hope this happens).
One of the places I go to be alone in Chicago (if only for a few minutes) is a car on the Ferris wheel at Navy Pier.
I saw Il Trovatore at the Lyrica Opera last night. This is the crazy-looking scrim.
