In preparation for the honeymoon in Europe, we’ve started this here blog.  Ideally, we’ll have regular updates with photos, but for now we’re testing it out with some photos from today’s trip into Chicago.

We started the day with a trip to Hot Doug’s on the north side, somewhere we’ve wanted to go for 5 years now.  After a 45 minute wait, we had the most delightful hot dogs, along with some duck fat fries.  Mmmmmm, duck fat.


Foie gras dog, uber garlic dog, and duck fat fries.

We followed that up with a trip to the Lincoln Park Zoo (Dawin was bummed that there aren’t currently any penguins to see).  Not sure what was up, but the animals were all up and about, which is unusual – but awesome.  While there, we met up with Jose, who’s moving to Chicago – mostly so that he can hang out with us, if truth be told. It was then off to pick up some cupcakes and take them back to Dave and Bailey’s place to enjoy the mild evening.

Check out some more pics from the day below.
