Weekend With Family


We've been so lucky the last few weekends...first we had Andy come in from Wisconsin and then weekend before last Adam and his gal pal arrived from Toronto. I know Adam through my family FRIENDS jILL AND sCOTT. wE WERE ALL AT yORK uNIVERSITY AT THE TIME AND AFTER SCHOOL aDAM AND sCOTT STAYED IN TOUCH THEY USED TO WORK AT A CAMPUS PUB...AND THEN THEY WORKED DOING ROOFING. aCTUALLY ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO sCOTT WENT BACK AND WAS WORKING WITH aDAM AGAIN NOW. Opps I totally didn't mean to put capitals here...but can't take tiome to go back and lower case them...sorry about that...anyways...I used to babysit Adam's kids when they were wee babies. We all go WAY back. So Adam had already planned to come into town that weekend...and ha...I had even offered them to stay with us. good thing they booked the hotel huh? But what amazing timing to have them be in town recently. Our spirits were again rejuvenated. It felt so great to be with familiar faces.


Adam ordering insane amounts of food and drinks...twist my arm!




Too hot for the club...Adam and Stagg..

Adam and I...somehow we found a nightclub after supper. And I am sure to the utter horror of the young people there we even got up and danced after that huge meal.

Me and Ali in the nightclub...

Stagg and Ali on the street...

On Saturday we met up at the Billy Goat Tavern.





After the Billy Goat Tavern we went to Kingston Mines and saw Big James in one room and in the other Joanne Conner. We've seen Joanne Conner there many times. We had ribs and collard greens, mac and cheese and all was delicious!



We hung out in the beautiful park outside the Art Institute...



We had to make sure Ali and Adam tasted deep dish pizza so we went to the Exchequer Pub after the gallery. Then we did some shopping for the kids.



We met at the Art Institute on their last day and then didn't know what else to do and we realized we were close to the Palmer House Hotel (where we had met Jason and Mike a month earlier for his mural being in a big show installed in the lobby of the Palmer...pics blogged here earlier) So we were able to grab a beverage and relax before Adam and Ali got their flight home. And it was sort of historical...



Okay...tomorrow Thanksgiving pics...
