A Face For TV

Sunday, August 10, 2014

I make some of the weirdest faces when I'm on stage. Take for example this one from the Laugh Factory on Friday night. 

Or this lovely shot from the Second City last week.

Why I've never landed a TV commercial is beyond me. I've clearly got a face for it.

And now to share a few photos which will explain why I am going to be eating healthy all week. Let's just say Chris and I had a bad weekend. And by bad, I mean good. Way too much good food. I'm eating popcorn as I type this and feeling very bad about my choices.

Saturday we had lunch at Little Goat in the West Loop. We've been to Girl and the Goat a few times, but never to Little Goat and we've been meaning to go all summer. It did not disappoint.

Crab dip served with good ol' Ritz crackers. Just the way I like.

The Sloppy Joe gone goat. I've always been a sucker for sloppys.

And fries upon fries upon fries.

We headed over to Wicker Park for a late night dinner at Big Star.

I feel like this crappy photo doesn't do this chorizo taco justice. But trust me, it was delicious. And I think my favorite thing about Big Star is the price. Our bill was under $30 because the tacos are like $3 a piece.

On Sunday we decided to finish our weekend of eating like crap on a high note and went to the Hot Dog Festival in Lincoln Park. We both had high hopes for our first hot dog fest in Chicago. So we were pretty bummed when we saw we had to pay $5 for a scrawny half, of a skinny little dog. I mean c'mon, does this look like a Chicago hot dog to you?

It was a pathetic little serving to say the least. So we skipped the fest and headed to Chicago's Dog House.

This was more like what we had in mind.

And we ended the day at Half Acre Brewery in Lincoln Square. Like I said, it was a rough weekend. Notice Chris's stickers. He also had two more on his back he didn't know about for the remainder of the day because I'm just a five year old like that.

And that concludes the weekend we ate Chicago. Not pictured: the yogurt we just got from Forever Yogurt piled high with Oreo crumbles and gummy bears.

According to my sore throat and itchy eyes at the moment I'm going to wake up in the morning with a full blown cold. So I'm really looking forward to that. Cheers to another great week ahead...

  5. the faces, lol, the first one is like WTF is that guy saying and the second forgive me please is an awesome Jim Careyesque face. and now I am thinking of non appropriate breakfast foods and instead have to stik with my chocolate yogurt because that is so much more appropriate for the A.M.
