  • Scoring free tickets to not one, but two original plays involving talking paintings.
  • Concerts and the photo booth, not to mention eating dinner near Eisley, at Schubas.
  • Amy Freeze, the meteorologist on Channel 83. (Take that Tom Skilling!)
  • The folks at Epworth United Methodist.
  • Vogue Fabrics in Evanston and the friendly folks at Loopy Yarns.
  • Going for walks in Andersonville and buying Zanzibar Dark Chocolate Ice Cream at Sweet Occasions.
  • Barbecues on Foster Beach.
  • The doormen in our building. 
  • Being 3 blocks from two grocery stores, a deep dish pizza place, and a Blockbuster.

Patooie!

I’m sure I’m forgetting things, but it’s a solid list. Yes, I’ll miss a lot about Chicago, but don’t worry too much about me. I’m going to Maine!
