Chicago is delicious

 Brian and I went to Chicago a few weekends ago to meet up with a good friend we hadn’t seen in a while. We were going to run a race with her, and instead, we ended up eating our way through the city. Not a bad switch, I’d say!

Our first stop was at Hot Doug’s, where I had a hot and spicy chicken sausage with pesto aioli and mozzarella (not in the photo below). Who knew hot dogs could be so gourmet? And to top it all off, the fries were cooked in duck fat. DUCK FAT, my friends! You can’t get much better than that.

For the trip, I packed a fall palette of blues and greys, of which I then forgot to take any photos, except for this one outfit. It didn’t help that we spent the (very cold, very windy) weekend pretty much hopping from restaurant to restaurant, so I actually didn’t much want many pictures taken of me and my very satisfied belly. 😉

We stayed with a great couple through AirBNB in Bucktown. We ate (and drank) at, among other places, at BigStar, the Map Room, and Ipsento Coffee. At Ipsento, Brian got a delicious latte with the flavors of coconut and cayenne. I stuck with the nutella latte. Yum.

Conclusion: Chicago is delicious! I wouldn’t mind going back in a heartbeat. (And psst–can you spot the Sears tower in this final pic?)

  1. Random fact: I’ve been to Ipsento’s! I went there to work when I was in Chicago for a day last winter! Let’s analyze this coincidence when I see you next week.

    • You’ve been to Ipsento’s?! That makes me so happy. I can’t wait to analyze it–but I think it has something to do with the fact that we’re best friends. 🙂

  2. I just saw a link to this blog on your FB page. I love it!! Thanks for giving me another excuse to not write my dissertation. 🙂

    • I am ALWAYS happy to provide fodder for procrastination! And haha, I’m a little happy AND a little embarrassed you’ve found my “fashion” blog. Glad you like it, though! Miss you!

    • Julia, I love Hot Doug’s SO MUCH too! Maybe someday we’ll see each other there. 🙂 If we do, I’ll buy you some duck fries.

      It’s great to hear from you! Hope you’re doing well.
