I’ve been getting a little bored with the usual cocktails, and a new bottle of Empress 1908 Gin has given me the motivation I needed to try some new cocktail recipes! I decided to make the Q1908 cocktail (from the Empress Gin website), as well as come up with a cocktail of my own.
There’s nothing like the boredom of social distancing to make you want to start flipping through old photos on your phone, and the latest rabbit-hole of image browsing made me realize I have a LOT of brunch pics!
I’ve been craving brunch so much since being homebound. And since I’ve enjoyed quite a few fantastic brunch spots since I’ve moved to Chicago, I decided to share some of my favorites with you in the coming weeks, starting with Machine: Engineered Dining & Drink in Wicker Park.
I didn’t know much about this Latin-inspired restaurant, but I was excited to try Amaru since it was a new, highly-rated restaurant in Wicker Park.
Gluten is one of my best friends. As in, any talk of gluten-free anything and I will slowly back out of the conversation. So, when an opportunity arose to check out Little Beet Table, a gluten-free restaurant with a veggie-forward menu, during a Yelp Elite event recently, I wasn’t exactly thrilled with the fact that it’s a gluten-free establishment but tried to keep an open mind.
I knew I could have just wandered around Barcelona and seen examples of modernist and Gaudi architecture on my own, but I was interested in learning more about Gaudi and the history of some of the buildings I wanted to see. As a result, I signed up for the Gaudi Tour with SANDEMANs NEW Barcelona Tours. It’s an affordable 3-hour tour through Barcelona, though it actually ended up being closer to 4 hours long.
