Downtown Summer Nights

September 3, 2015

It is days like today when I am sitting in class, already exhausted, sick, and unamused, when I just wish I could be back in Chicago.  I didn’t really get to post too many things about my summer in Chicago so I figured why not do a quick post about a few of my highlights.

Towards the end of the summer, I kayaked with my sister and family friend down the Chicago River.  It was a 6 mile trail so if you are not crazy about kayaking I would say do not do this.  But is was so much fun because the three of us just laughed ourselves sick and got to see the Navy Pier fireworks half way through too.  It wasn’t too hot or too cold so overall the night was awesome!  We got back around 11:15 and ordered some famous Chicago pizza and then called it a night.  Let’s just say, even though the ride was long… I would much rather be there than sitting in this Asian American Studies class right now.

 Gotta throw what you know

Restaurants.  Another amazing part of my summer in Chicago.  I am just going to tell you about two since I could write about so many of them.  Feast was a new one for me this summer.  I went at the end of the summer with two of my friends.  It is a modern American cuisine.  I got backed chicken with a green bean, radish, and spring green salad on top.  Drink of choice, as always, was an iced tea-lemonade.  The atmosphere was perfect for a beautiful night in the city.  We sat outside on their patio where they had adorable lights hanging from the ceiling and it was half covered so as the sun went down at night, it was not overwhelmingly hot.  This night was a perfect way for me to finish up my summer with two of my best friends.  Once again, let me say, I would rather be eating downtown at these amazing restaurants then having to cook all my own meals in my apartment.

 I chose to wear my Lilly Pulitzer Millie top, Lilly Pulitzer Worth Skinny Jeans, Steve Madden Wedges, and finished off the outfit with my Pink printed Burberry finger purse.

Don’t mind my friend Elyse, she wanted to photobomb for the blog post

Just one more restaurant!  This is a modern Mexican cuisine that is my Dad’s favorite; Catina Laredo.  They have the best margaritas (yes my was a virgin) and table side guacamole.  This was my going away dinner with my Dad and sister before having to leave for school.  The location is perfect because right after dinner we made our way down to the new Chicago Riverwalk.

Hope you all enjoyed just my quick post about the things I am missing about summer.  Obviously being in Champaign, IL at school again is great because I did miss my friend but nothing compared to my times in Chicago!  Make you to comment, share, and email me with any thoughts or ideas!  Love you all.
