I’m back from a wonderful weekend in Chicago. I think the recorded voice on the CTA subway said it best when it said, “This is Grand.”

Some highlights:

  • the weather was beautiful
  • the Doubletree Suites downtown was fantastic, as well as reasonably priced with the stay-free-Sunday-night deal
  • I’d highly recommend the architectural tour by boat
  • the Art Institute is wonderful
  • great food at the Mambo Grill and Indian Garden (with bangain bharta to die for)
  • a visit to East Lakeview that included great brunch (the name of the restaurant escapes me, however) and one of the best vintage stores, Silver Moon, I’ve ever visited

The new car is still a joy – mileage is way up this days, and averaging about 50 to 55 MPG on my 20 mile commute to work.

Frisbee season starts this weekend. Finally some exercise!
