When we started thinking about what we wanted to do to celebrate, we talked about getting out of town for a weekend. Chicago was on the list, since we hadn't been together in a few years. When I looked at the calendar, I realized I would be there for the week before our anniversary on business, so that was the obvious choice.
M arrived on Thursday evening, and I wrapped up our events Friday morning. Once we switched hotels and got settled, the first place we went was Eataly! If you know anything about us, you know we plan our trips around food, and this one was no exception.
After exploring the HUGE store (is that what you call it? Store/bar/restaurant?), we found a spot in the beer cafe in the corner and decided this would be our afternoon hangout. We were waiting for our friends to fly in from DC to join us for the weekend.
