My trip to Chicago to see my buddy's/girlfriend's brother's band, depart to return, was less than 24 hours - Depart with girl's fam, couple stops, arrive, sound check, rockin', post-rockin', crash hard, early rise, drive home.
Cram life in, folks.
Linner at The Acropolis in Lafayette. Opa!
The Acropolis is owned by my buddy's in-laws. Amazing food and better company.
Cubs were in Cincinnati, beating the Reds, prolonging their fan's delusions.
That left The Cubby Bear free to host...
The Cubby Bear is a fantastic place to see a band, but has a hugely disappointing beer selection. I tried several, but they all tasted like crap. I'm pretty sure all of the taps were plumbed to the same keg of Bud Light.
Luckily, Mullen's Bar & Grill had Fat Tire on tap.
The whirlwind visit meant no time for a run. Still, I have my eye on you, Buckingham Fountain.
Numbers: 1.3 miles in the kind of wind you see on The Weather Channel and in pirate books.
