I love exploring Chicago's bars and restaurants, especially when the sun is shining, the food is yummy, and the company is fabulous. Here's a peek into where we went...
First stop: Brunch/lunch at Revolution Brewing
|We shared some bacon fat popcorn.|
|Passion fruit bellini... and coffee, of course.|
|Awesome lighting and tin ceiling.|
|I had the quiche, which features rotating seasonal ingredients (this one was a take on a chicken pot pie!).|
|Time for gifts!|
Second stop: Drinks (outside and then inside) at Boiler Room
|Pretty outdoor space.|
|Fun "lottery" game (with prizes!).|
|The whole group!|
|The bride-to-be with a treat... Jameson-flavored ice cream.|
|The CTA-train-inspired bathroom (this view is from the inside, looking out).|
|The name of this drink, when translated, included the word "butt"... but it tasted just fine.|
Third stop: Appetizers (and more drinks) at Tavern
|A quick hop on the L.|
|Waiting for the train.|
|More eating and drinking.|
|A drink for the bachelorette.|
Last stop: Dinner and dessert at Mindy's Hot Chocolate
|Another chance to win!|
|Pretty pink drink called "Paris to Milan."|
Unfortunately, I didn't get a snapshot of the food we ordered (lots of the most delicious mac-and-cheese + veggie sides) or the dessert (a skillet souffle and a red velvet cake).
But needless to say, we had a great time celebrating with Miss C. before she becomes Mrs. H!
