 Just another typical Chicago weekend...

Slush did stop into town and we were able to grab a quick bite and "Longman and Eagle" which is a new gastropub that specializes in  whiskey (specifically bourbon). They even had whisky flights! Dessert was at the new store, the Cookiebar in Lincoln Park. All they have are eclectic and typical cookies, some brownies, and ice cream (to make ice cream sandwiches). 

For Saturday, there was a small gathering and BBQ for Huxley's just past birthday. But I think it turned more into an excuse to play Kings. :P

Sunday was just a day to bike ride and push myself. I hadn't ridden more than 7 miles in a day, but the weather was amazing in Chicago and so I just kept on riding.
  • I rode about 3.5 miles to work and then back. Had a quick breakfast and break
  • Rode 3.5 miles to the zoo and relaxed by the puma cage. It was snoozing (AGAIN) on the top ledge in what looked like an uncomfortable position.
  • Rode 8 miles to the Rogers Park Street festival to visit Woody at his comic book booth. The views along the lake were incredible!
  • Then later rode 7.5 miles back home
So all in all, it was a 25 mile day. Legs are cramping. Butt is sore, but I'm happy.

It was. Can't wait until I can go up and down the lake again.

Longman and Eagle looks really interesting. How was it? Might have to check that out.

And of course, after looking at the menu, the obvious question is "which one of you sampled the 'duck fries'? " :D

Food was pretty good but the menu is small. They do have big portions. And no, i didn't want duck testicles. :P
