Yesterday, Kayla and I decided to go on a small adventure. I wanted to make sure I could find the building where I have my internship this summer; so we did a little trial run and after getting a little turned around a few times, we finally made it to the building that will be my second home for the summer. We also wanted to check out this little sandwich shop and bakery in little Italy. So to a bus stop we went and waited with growling stomachs!
We don’t have much experience with the bus system in Chicago, and it’s a little hard to navigate if you ask me. We boarded the right bus, going the right way, but managed to miss our stop (I’m still convinced the bus driver never actually announced/ stopped at the one we needed). We got off the bus about a mile and a half from our destination, so we had to backtrack down Grand Avenue with very angry stomachs.
After a good twenty minute walk, we arrived at our long-awaited destination, Bari! It’s this little Italian grocery store with a sandwich place in the back. I got the Caprese sub and Kayla got the Roast Beef. The best thing about this place is how much food you get for so little. My 9″ sub was only $5! And enough to fill me up for lunch and save the other half for dinner, I love a good deal. The people running this store were so nice and attentive.
