When in Rome do as the Romans . . . . errr, in Chicago . . . . EAT, DRINK, & BE MERRY!
|Friday Night: Bubba Gump @ Navy Pier - FUN!|
|Random photo to show you the outdoor eating area where we dined.|
|I had fish & chips - it's served on a fake Forest Gump newspaper - CREATIVE!|
After the race, we headed to one of the city's most recommended pizzarias for a bit of deep dish and spirits! Ginos East was our destination - this place has ALL THE CHARM!!!!
|Saturday night, this place had a 90-120 minute wait . . . must be good. We waited about 30 minutes on Sunday for lunch!|
|Just a photo of the multi-story eatery. Quaint, isn't it?!?!|
|MOA & her mom. Who's MOA? Stay tuned for a whole post on my awesome new friend!|
|As you can see, graffiti is encouraged so . . . on the left line in the "A" I wrote 13.1 LB|
|After a half marathon - it's important to hydrate so . . . I got a Rum Punch (left -YUM!), a diet coke (middle - also YUM!), and a water to keep up appearances (right - ha!)|
|Well, after drinking a Rum Punch while wearing your newly earned medal - you too can have a cheesy picture taken!|
|What's in that Rum Punch to enable such a "cheesy smile" you ask? Well see for yourself . . . 1 part goodness mixed with 1 part delicious awesomeness and 2 parts "heck yeah I kicked Chicago butt!"|
|A round of post race spirits for everyone!!!! Party at table 1!|
|One slice of authentic Chicago Style deep dish pizza with meat and veggies and tons of cheese - SOOO GOOD!|
|The rest of the pizza I brought home - wow, one piece, even after a half marathon, was filling!!!!|
|The GREATEST restroom sign ever! Hilarious!|
