Friday was my friend and coworker Chris’s last day. Kind of a bummer since we really got to know each other on some mobile projects I’ve worked on and he’d become one of my favorite developers and team leaders. He will definitely be missed!

Dallas and I were watching as Jackie Robinson West, a little league team from the south side of Chicago, won the national championship and then the next day as they took on South Korea for the world championship. They lost to Korea, but are still the US Little League champs, which is super cool. I did not plan to watch the parade and celebration today, which started on the south side and ended across from my office, but we had a planned lunch outing for Chris’s last day (on Friday) and got caught up in it all!

Isobar* Summer Event

This is not Oak Street Beach! After our annual meeting this year, we were supposed to head to the beach. The weather was so bad on Thursday and was predicted to be the same on Friday, so Plan B (roof top – with retractable roof at American Junkie) was activated. Of course, that means that Friday was a beautiful, sunny day. It was so humid, though, after so much rain on Thursday, I was glad to be inside.

As always, it was nice to hang out with all my work friends, not in the work setting. I came home early (before 8 p.m.!) because Makai was sick, but it was probably for the best, the way everyone was doing shots of fireball and tequila like it was going out of style! Great night though. Fun day.

*Also note that we are officially Isobar, not Roundarch and not Roundarch Isobar!

2013: The Rooftop at Market
