Chicago was a blast and although I don't really like the cold weather it was fun to play in the 6 inches of snow that fell on Friday. The trip began on Wednesday when I arrived. Some other friends from Phoenix were also visiting so we all decided it was time to have lunch on Halsted. After a delicious sandwich we wandered into a local watering hole and proceeded to enjoy a frosty beverage. Someone then had the GREAT idea to walk down the East side of Halsted and have a drink inside every bar we walked past. For those of you who have never walked Halsted all I can say is "gurl.. you are fixin to get real drunkded" and we did. The next three days were basically a repeat of Wednesday with some Iron Chef competitions and a little College Basketball Tournaments thrown in for good measure. On my flight back I was one tired puppy so when Paw Paw picked me up we had a quick dinner and I was in bed by 10 PM. It was nice to wake up Monday morning without a hangover!!!
