Last weekend we had our very first entire weekend away since Little Man was born. It happened to fall just after our eighth wedding anniversary so it really was a treat. We headed to Chicago to see my brother's band play at Riot Fest. Such a big deal! There's no way we were going to miss it! The funniest part about it is that our friends in Chicago that we always stay with just moved back to Cleveland (and our other friends were out of town), so it was a trip for just us, for the most part. It was great! We missed Little Man but sleeping in, staying up late, and having no plan at all was a much needed treat. These were our best Riot Fest faces to start the weekend off. The drive there is always more exciting than the drive home. We played games and listened to music. And I tried my best not to cry about leaving the boy. Now for the major photo dump.
Friday night we stayed in this cute B&B in Logan Square called Longman & Eagle. Each stylish little room is different. Ours had this cool mural over the bed and a nice subway tile bathroom with a hanging terrarium and a variety of mix tapes, which was pretty fun. Plus we got two wooden nickels for whiskey drinks at the bar. Friday night was filled with bar hopping, taking the train, and catching up with the Riot Fest folks after their night. Plus we discovered Cards Against Humanity, JJ was the big winner.
I didn't get a proper photo of the swanky place we stayed Saturday night downtown by the river called the Langham. It was equipped with a rapid fill tub and a rain shower with a privacy glass that turned back to regular glass with the tap of a button. We walked around the city, had a low key dinner, then a nice quiet night watching a movie in bed. We had a great time catching up with my brother and sister-in-law plus a really great surprise friend that came to check out the show too. I'll share more about Riot Fest on part two, you can only take so many photos, right? Happy Tuesday.
