So here's a little preview of our amazing vacation to the midwest.
Our vacation started at Girl & the Goat. We got into Chicago at 3pm and were at Stephanie Izard's restaurant (former Top Chef Winner) by 4:30. Yep, we ate dinner at 4:30pm and it was so worth it to be able to walk right in : ) Review on this amazing food to come...
We had some authentic Deep Dish Pizza and had a battle of the two famous chains. (My review to come)
And finished our trip to Chicago with an Architectural Boat Tour and a Cubs game. Dave caught a foul ball!!! How amazing is that?
Chicago was a blast but the best part of this vacation was hanging out with my family in Nebraska. We had the worst flight getting into Omaha. We were on a small flight and there was a torrential rain/lightening storm as we made our way down but we landed safely : )
Saturday was spent cheering on the Huskers (Nebraska College Football) and eating Southern food while hanging out with family : )
I really couldn't have asked for a better week. The midwest gets a bad rap, but I loved every part of being out there. Chicago is totally a city I could see myself living in (if I ever decided to leave my beloved Boston which doesn't seem likely)! And Omaha will always have my heart. Omaha is a special place to me that I love visiting! Thanks to everyone who made this weekend so special. Stay tuned for some amazing Restaurant Reviews : )
How was your long weekend?
