Briar Street Theater, Boystown, Chicago
Rachelle, Blue Man, Mom
Every year my mom comes down and we have dinner and go see some sort of show. I usually treat the show tickets for her birthday and she usually gets dinner.. just because that’s what moms do? This year was delayed a month or so just because our schedules weren’t matching up. There weren’t a ton of “big” shows that were playing that we wanted to see, so we opted for Blue Man Group. Neither of us had ever seen it. I thought it was fun. It reminded me of Stomp a lot (I saw it twice) .. the style of it and the small theater.
Last year and the year before we saw Wicked and Mama Mia. When I lived in Wisconsin we did sort of the same thing, without the stay overnight part, and went to a Lorie Line concert and saw Riverdance.
Belgian Waffles, Kitsch’n, Roscoe Village, Chicago
The next day we went out for brunch at Kitsch’n . The Belgian waffles were plated in a way that reminded me of summer.. or maybe just Hawaii with the flower. Then we went shopping all day.
