It was a blast.
We met up at Anne’s and headed out for a three mile fun run through the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago. I ran with Anne and Kim. The miles flew by and I felt like we barely had any time to chat!
We arrived at Half Acre an hour before their Saturday tour to wait in line for our spot on the tour. Good thing we did, because the 60 person limit was reached very quickly! It was cold, but we came prepared in neon running clothing and even BYOB-ed our own bagels and bananas to carbo-load between beers.
Anne, Bob (Anne’s husband) and Lauren enjoy their food and brews at Bad Apple!
After being shushed a few times on the tour, we walked across the street to Bad Apple for some burgers and more beer.
I ordered the Edmund Fig-gerald which was with made with Edmund Fitzgerald porter, fig & bacon relish, goat cheese and smoked onion. I had firecracker fries on the side which made my nose run. Such a delicious meal with great company!
After lunch, we went back across the street to buy a few growlers to bring home. I took a quick cat nap on the drive home (Rich drove) and then we spent the night on the couch watching bad TV. It was a perfect Saturday!
