Guess what guys, Kayla and I are reunited for the summer *cue: jumping up and down!* Guess who else is living in the city, Logan! All of my favorite people in one city, could life get any better? I moved in exactly a week ago today, and have been having a BLAST. My internship doesn’t start until Monday, so this week has been super chill.
Last weekend Logan and I explored Logan Square (I know, I know, a Logan in Logan Square). It was pretty funny because his name was literally plastered everywhere; street signs, billboards, boutique names his name was omnipresent. Logan Square was super fun, it’s full of little boutiques, candy stores, coffee shops, and restaurants.
I made Logan pose next to this fun wall art, but as people started passing us, Logan became less willing to stand for pics.
What kind of explorers would we be if we didn’t check out the bar scene in Logan Square?!
First stop: Marble. This bar was super laid back and had AMAZING patio seating. My little heart is so happy that I can finally enjoy the weather, and sit comfortably outside while sippin’ on a nice glass of wine. This bar also had free food served from 11pm-1am. Logan and I made sure to help ourselves to some pizza and sloppy joe sliders.
Second stop: Scofflaw. FREE COOKIES AT MIDNIGHT! That’s right guys, Logan and I were drinking our tasty signature cocktails (only $8) when a very nice waiter approached our table with a tray filled with freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies, for free! Obviously, my heart is easily won…
Monday’s in Chicago are not a drag because the city puts on free concerts every Monday during the summer at Millenium Park! Kayla, Logan, and I decided we would make it a summer tradition to make it to as many of these fun and free concerts throughout the summer. The bands they get are pretty good, and the atmosphere is so laid back; it makes for a perfect way to start your week.
Week 1 of summer 2014 was a great time, I can’t wait to share more of our adventures with all of you!
Do you have any fun plans for this summer?
