     For the long weekend my boyfriend and I went to Chicago. I had been before, but it was his first time, and I had an awesome time showing him the city and finding new restaurants together. One of our new favorites is Billy Goat Tavern (right off of Michigan Ave.), and for anyone who's from Ann Arbor, it's kind of similar to the atmosphere at Blimpy Burger. We did some shopping, and ending up scoring awesome seats (fourth row!) at the Friday night Blue Man Group performance - student rush is definitely the way to go for that show. Of course I was craving dessert after the show (I have a serious problem), and we got crepes at La Creperie. Its an adorable little French restaurant that serves mostly crepes - I had the Banana Sara and Brett had a strawberry one. They give you huge crepes that are just to die for. On Saturday we visited Millenium Park and the Art Institute of Chicago, did a little more shopping, and ended the night at the Red Bar Comedy Club for their one year anniversary show. It was my first time going to a comedy club, but it was just hysterical - Red Bar only has a $10 cover charge so it's worth it! We left Sunday afternoon, but we grabbed breakfast at the Grand Lux Cafe (owned by the Cheesecake Factory) and wow, best breakfast ever. Red velvet pancakes with cream cheese frosting?! Yes, believe your eyes. Delicious. Go there immediately.

Best pancakes ever.
      Next time I'm there, I'm finding the Meatyballs food truck (mostly just because it's called Meatyballs, let's be honest) and getting Chicago-style pizza since the wait was about three hours this weekend.
