friday five | the windy city.

J: You guys. Tomorrow is my friend Mary’s 30th birthday! YAY! Here we are the night Jay and I got engaged. I hope she has that same smile on her face all weekend long in CHICAGO.

Engagement 044
HBD, MARES <3

We’re skipping town to meet up with our girls, Anny and Shaili, in The Windy City. I can hardly contain my excitement.

With that, here are 5 things that are on our agenda this weekend. As you will see, we’re eating our way through the city. Reviews to follow after we’re back and recovered.

1. Gino’s East: Mary’s first birthday request… to eat pizza at Gino’s East. She says it’s the best. I’ll be the judge of that.

2. Tanta Chicago: We were lucky to land a reservation at this Peruvian hot spot. Let’s see what this cebiche is all about.

3. Chicago Q: Who doesn’t love a good BBQ joint? The bruleed macaroni and cheese is calling my name.

4. Bar Takito: Just the decor in this place looks so fun. Already dreaming of a cucumber margarita

5. Bottlefork: This will be me: “One bag of sour cream donut holes, please.”

I have my BFF and Chicagoan, Anny Kitchen, to thank for this amazing itinerary. Stay tuned for trip pics on our Instagram page!
