Hospitality at Davidson's Bar and Eatery.
No. 2 picked us up at the airport yesterday, dropped Em at his son's house, and took me back to where she lives. With all the delays, it got to be Noon and I was hungry (hadn't eaten anything yet all day). Cheapest place for us to eat out would be at Davidson's (because No. 2 gets a discount). We spent most of the afternoon at Davidson's meeting her friends and co-workers. After HOURS of talking, eating, and (of course) beer drinking, we took a little historical tour nearby. It was a great afternoon for a walk. Dinner plans were for (You guessed it)...Davidson's, where family and more friends would gather. Didn't make it much past 10pm, and had a full Davidson's day. Great people, great hospitality...sure made me feel welcome. They also comped almost all our expenses, so here's a BIG smooch for all those wonderful people...from the owners to the beautiful servers. SMOOOCH.......... This morning we're off to drop No. 2's car at Em's son's house to take the Elevated downtown. At least *I*'m shooting for this morning. No. 2 is a slow mover. Gonna get a big breakfast at McDonald's before we go, so we have energy until later in the afternoon. Once there, we'll drop off our bags (too early to check in) and check out any/all of the following activities: farmer's market, art institute, planetarium, Head of Femur concert. Head of Femur is an American rock band based in Chicago. They'll be performing at the Jay Pritzker Pavillion in Millenium Park. After dinner, we'll walk over to Butler Field in Grant Park for the 7th Annual Chicago Outdoor Film Festival. Bedtime will probably come pretty early again after such a long day with so many activities outdoors. This is SO exciting! Looks like she might be close to ready to leave, too!
