Happy Birthday, Adam!

February 24th, 2014 · No Comments

Christine, Makai, Adam (with his BRF)

Christine, Makai

Blowing out the candles!

Last minute, we decided to join Adam and a bunch of other friends at Piece for pizza and beer. Makai was being kind of…. one second he was happy and the next he was screaming his head off for no reason. We made the decision while he was napping and were not sure what would happen when he woke up. Luckily he was on perfect behavior at both Piece and when we went to Lucky’s afterwards so some of the guys could play darts!



Dallas thought he hadn’t been to Piece for a year or so.. and I’d say that I haven’t been there for years (multiple..2008?), even though we’re around it often. They had a cleverly named beer called “Marketing Ploy,” which is a collaboration with Three Floyds. The beer was good and many at our table enjoyed it. To be honest, though, I think that the pizza was more of a marketing ploy than the beer. Piece was featuring a special pie that was made in collaboration with Honey Butter Fried Chicken and had their fried chicken on the pizza. Everyone raves about honey butter’s fried chicken, but this pie was nothing special. I think everyone preferred the other pizzas we ordered.

Anyway, it was nice to be back at Piece and out with friends. And to have a well-behaved baby that everyone gushed over. And I’d never been to Lucky’s and liked it’s cool, relaxed vibe.

Paying Up on the Sandwich Bet

February 1st, 2014 · No Comments


Dallas and Adam always make a sandwich bet every year. I don’t know what exactly it involves.. something to do with fantasy football. Last year Dallas lost and made a fried green tomato and shrimp po’boy for Adam. I got to sample a little of it when my brother and I stopped over after watching the Hobbit last year. This year Adam lost and for payback he went to Eataly and then came over with Christine and served COURSES of sandwich. Three different sandwiches!

The first, my favorite, was a prosciutto with fresh mozzarella and basil on fresh Italian fennel bread. He made some kind of balsamic/olive oil/garlic dressing that was amazing. The second sandwich was prime rib. This was a hot sandwich and really tasty and rich. Dallas and Adam liked this one the best. Finally, there was a hot rosemary ham sandwich, which was also very good, but we were getting SO stuffed.

After dinner we sat and visited and played with Makai and ate cookies I made for dessert. Fun night.. and yeh. I can not wait to visit the Eataly in Chicago!!
