Hey all – Happy Monday! Sharing some highlights from our weekend adventures below. How was your weekend?
Thanks to everyone who sent good vibes for my race last weekend. I survived the cold 🙂 With wind chill, it was under 30* when we started, and very wet… but no rain. I was super happy with my finish, and celebrated with chocolate chip pancakes. I am looking forward to a half marathon in May!
Back to this weekend:
|1| Drinks at The Game Room inside the Chicago Athletic Association
I met up with some ladies for happy hour drinks after work inside the Chicago Athletic Association. No worries, you don’t have to be a member to go to the Game Room. The space is really fun, and filled with games like pool and shuffle board. The also have amazing lime popcorn.
Those floors are my fav, btw.
|2| #DateMe at the Up Comedy Club
On Saturday night, AR and I went to see a comedy show based on OKCupid dating profiles. If you’ve ever created an online dating profile – or lived vicariously through a friend’s online dating stories – the show is hysterical. We laughed so hard and loved the evening. [you can read more about the show here]
|3| Dinner at Chicago Q
After the show, we walked to Chicago Q, which is an upscale barbecue spot. Y’all. Seriously. So. Good.
They gave us pickles and chips when we sat down (and included a huge container of them in our to-go sack!). I had the pulled chicken salad, AR had ribs, and we shared cornbread and mac-n-cheese. Every bite was fantastic. I didn’t even have room for their chocolate cake! Next time.
|4| Cupcakes with a friend
Sunday was spent cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, and relaxing. One of my friends stopped by with cupcakes from Molly’s, and we sampled several flavors – Peach cobbler was by favorite!
Hope your Monday is starting well. I’m sipping coffee and rushing to work, but I’d love to hear about your weekend!
Any one have a spring race planned?? (so happy for better running weather!)
Thanks for hosting the link-up, Biana!
