Dallas up with Malia and Tyler and Emily at Pedquods for lunch and then they headed to Rev. After work I met up with them at Emporium and then we headed to The Whistler, stopping at a show at Galerie F on the way. So great to meet up with Malia while she was visiting from Kona!

On Sunday we all headed to the Remix Fest on Milwaukee Avenue between California and Fullerton. Jess, Andy, Katie, and Scotty met us over there. It was a small fest, but the proceeds benefit a local school, so we did our part.

Jess was meeting some friends at the Longman & Eagle Block Party so I joined her. They basically had the block blocked off and you could drink and eat a limited menu outside. Perfect night for it, but for the record, I did not like that Grey Lady beer.

After a while we headed to Emporium and had some more drinks and saw some more friends. Fun night.

Guardians + Chicago Distillery + Emporium

August 11th, 2014 · No Comments

We left Makai at daycare a few hours late and went to see Guardians of the Galaxy IN THE MOVIE THEATER. Dallas hadn’t been to the theater since last October, before Makai was born, and I hadn’t been since January. After that we hit up two spots in Logan Square that we hadn’t been to yet – Chicago Distilling Company and Emporium Arcade Bar.

Chicago Distilling makes their own gin, vodka and white whiskey right here in Logan Square. Dallas had a gin and tonic, a drink that used to be his go-to in the olden days. He wanted to really taste the gin. I had a fancy grapefruit cocktail with the white whiskey. Nice. Cool spot. No food. You can also buy bottles of the booze to go and I’ve seen it at the Logan Square Framers Market too.

Emporium has a Wicker Park location that we’ve been to a bunch of times. The Logan Square location just opened a week or so ago. Dallas was there last week and liked it so I was glad to check it out. There are some arcade games and pin ball games, but the main focus is table games, like pool, foosball, air hockey, etc. All the beers are canned and there’s a permanent food truck inside that serves sandwiches. The place is huge and the buildout is really nice. I liked it a lot. We each had a can of beer off their extensive list then it was time to pick up Makai.
