Is it Thursday already? What a week. I’m actually very excited for tonight because I am taking Bobby out on a date. I gave him tickets to see Dralion by Cirque du Soleil for Christmas and we are off to the the-a-ter (do I sound cultured?) tonight. Yes, it sounds like a self-serving gift. But we went to see Kooza more than two years ago and loved it. After seeing the Beatles Love in Las Vegas with Jill, I checked the website and was very happy to hear they would be coming back to Chicago again!
The trailer looks amazing (you have to click the video to watch on YouTube):
I’ll be sure to let you know what we thought of it in my next post!
Another thing I’m excited about this week? A new restaurant to love: Yard House.
This restaurant boasts the “world’s largest selection of draft beer” and they aren’t kidding! So of course, we had to start with a pint. Jill suggested the 3floyds Gumball Head. With a unique name like that, how could I refuse?
It was very good! With an orange, citrus and coriander blend, I could definitely taste the zestiness.
We also took advantage of the happy hour menu. We started with an order of hummus, topped with edamame and kalamata olives with crispy soybeans with kosher salt. Plus plenty o’ pita!
For dinner, we decided to each order a pizza to share, which were at half price. I chose the BBQ Chicken, which came with mozzarella, cilantro, red onion and smoked gouda with BBQ sauce.
Jill went with the Margherita, which was comprised of oven roasted roma tomatoes, roasted garlic, mozzarella and fresh basil. Both were delicious – it was hard to choose a favorite!
We were each able to bring home a few slices for leftovers, too.
What is one of the best restaurants (new to you or an old favorite) you’ve visited lately?
I am usually a creature of habit because I’m scared that I won’t like something new. But it’s always great when you take the chance and it turns out in your favor! Too bad the only Illinois location is so far outside of the city. Hint, hint.
