That’s the most important thing to tell you! Â I went by my home away from home (Beaumont Family Dentistry) and my new teeth were in! Â YIPPPPEEEE! Â Crowns are in place and they are real pretty.
Big times around here. Â I got Cabin Fever in a bad, bad way last week and started hitching to Ohio. Â Actually, my Mom has been kind enough to lend her Town and Country van to the cause and I took off for Cincinnati on Wednesday past. Â I got to hang out with Nicole and her kids for the night. Â Nicole made some a-m-a-z-i-n-g ceviche, we had a bottle of wine, and we plopped on the couch for the evening watching Top Chef and whatever else was on the DVR. Â Add a couple of Skinny Cows into the mix and it was pure Heaven. Â After that lovely evening, I got in the car Thursday morning, stopped at the Echo, grabbed my Graeter’s to go and made way to Chicago.
I made it to Chicago in record time (thanks time change!) and finally got to meet the Famous McCoy sisters! Â Delightful. Â Brian and I went to dinner in the neighborhood (Reuben Eggrolls? Â They exist.), had a drink, and called it a day. Â Friday, the McCoy’s were working around the house and I mostly daydreamed about dinner. Â Then, FINALLY, Brian S. and Emily arrived from their cross country journey!!
We all had a quick pasta dinner outside and made our way back to the neighborhood strip and found an amazing place to hang out. Â The Mecca Supper Club is probably the coolest thing in Edison Park. Â The ladies and fellas that came in were pretty fantastic. Â Gentlemen with their shirts unbuttoned, all that puberty gave them out for the world to see. Â WOW. Â And the ladies. Â Such tight skirts, so, so short. Â And heels. Â High ones. Â And the permanent waves in those long locks. Â Awesome. Â And, it wasÂ karaokeÂ night. Â Sweet ass. Â I’ll be back. Â I failed to mention that the waitress might have been auditioning for a “Hot for Teacher” remake. Â She started the evening off in a button up with a bow-tie and her hair in a bun. Â At 9p, she came back to check on us with her hair down (permed), skinny jeans on, and a tank top. Â Look for the video.
We went out to do some sight seeing on Saturday after Brian S. and Emily headed to Geneva, IL. Â And, honestly, I don’t remember what we did. Â It doesn’t matter. Â I think we drove around to Wicker Park. Â Oh yeah! Â We had Cuban food and it was super yummy. Â I didn’t remember initially because we walked around Wicker Park on our own little pub crawl. Â It was short but good.
I’m looking into doing one or two of the Frank Lloyd Wright tours when I go back to Chicago in about 10 days. Â They are a little pricey but I think it would be super fun and well, I’ve got the time. Â It would be a shame to not do it. Â I am also hoping to get back to the Art Institute. I’m going to have to muster up some adventure. Â I’m determined to get Chicago. Â Any and all suggestions are welcome!
I came back to Lexington yesterday with Brian S. and mostly we’ve just been hanging out with LuLu, our brother Dannie, and the nieces. Â This weekend, we head to Indianapolis for our family reunion! Â That should be super fun. Â Brian Mc is meeting me there and then we are off to Ohio for the week. Â OHIO I say! Â Columbus, Cleveland, and Amish Country. Â Why not?
