You Have No Idea
I have, once again, returned. I am both sick and exhausted, but it was totally worth it.
My week in DC was surprisingly awesome, despite being there as an usher of middle schoolers. I even managed to squeeze in a decent restaurant one night.
My time in Chicago (approximately 30 hours), however, was the experience of a lifetime. Quite simply, it fucking rocked.
I will post about Alinea as soon as I have more than 2 minutes to myself. What I will say is that I had no idea that a dining experience could be so incredible in so many ways. I am not opposed to flying back to Chicago just to eat there again. Really.
I can't wait to tell you all about it.
