As I mark my sixth anniversary as an ex-pat New Yorker living in King Daley’s court, I realize this is the first New Year in Chicago that I don’t want to be anywhere else.
Last week, Take Me Out co-owner Karen Lim emailed to to report the eatery will be back in business starting Saturday, October 18th. She’ll be celebrating by giving out free Little Hotties, and that’s reason enough to show up in my book.
Loved the weather and hated to work today, so I skipped out to Grant Park. While city workers made Buckingham Fountain sputter on and off, cleaning out winter goo, I made comfy on a semi-shady bench and read Kerouac.
