Madhouse on Madison

It was a crazy ride. I don’t know how Towes and the cup got back to Chicago so fast.

When it Rains, It Pours

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

sox game 004 I went to my first White Sox game of the year. It was this past Saturday and it rained non-stop. Horrible weather but we were watching baseball and that means it’s finally going to get warm. They played Detroit which is always a good game.

The White Sox won 7-0 and then they beat them the following day 11-0! I love it when the Tigers lose. Despite it being rainy and the Hot Dog buns were a little stale. We still had a good time.

Opera – Figaro!

Friday, March 21st, 2008

Lyric Opera ChicagoTerri got a pair of opera tickets from a co-worker. It was the famous The Barber of Seville. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was up for it. We sat in the front row, plenty of leg room and you could see the orchestra pit. It was pretty neat, I remember the music from watching Tom and Jerry growing up. Sitting in the front is cool and I’m glad it was an interesting opera otherwise it would look bad to fall asleep where everyone could see you.

The Opera was a comedy so it was light hearted. Sure it was in another language but they had the words up on a screen when they sang them. There wasn’t as many words as you would think, they seem to repeat a lot of what they are saying and they don’t reprint the lyrics on the screen so you could just read the sentence and then get back to watching them sing and jump around.

One thing that I got a kick out of that probably only a few people were able to see was in the orchestra pit. There were two percussionist and they didn’t seem to have much to do (mostly strings in the songs, )one of them kept disappearing for long periods of time. Despite a couple of crossword puzzles from the musicians, the two trumpet players seem the have a little party session going on. They left a couple times and one seemed to rush back in fear of missing their cue. Those wacky musicians.

On to the food review. We went to Avec, it was a late night, the show was 3 hours 15 minutes and by the time we got out it was 10:45. Avec is open till midnight so it was perfect and the food is wonderful there. We got one of our favorites, bacon wrapped stuffed dates, yum! This is the second time we went to Avec and both times we say that we should go there more often. If anyone is in the West Loop around dinner time let us know.

Jersey Boys

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

Jersey BoysTerri took me to see Jersey Boy’s for my birthday last week. It was Awesome! I never realized that I knew every song. It’s a good show to see with a girl, or a guy, whatever your in to. Check it out, it was playing in Chicago for a limited time but then they extended it forever or something like that.

The following day we went to the south loop and ate at the Chicago Firehouse Restaurant. It was a very good Steak house. I don’t eat steak that often but I do love a good one.

Well there’s my two recommendations. Check em out!
