Burrito House, Lakeview, Chicago
Last night Abby and a few of her friends hosted an event called Beers for Boobs at Gannon’s Pub. For $25 we got all of the wine, beer and liquor we could drink for 3 hours and Gannon’s donated 10% of the proceeds to Abby’s fund raising effort for a 3-day walk she is doing to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.
Abby is doing well and is about 60% of the way to her goal of raising $2,200.00. I think it’s so great that she’s going to be walking 60 miles over the course of 3 days to support the cause. It seems like hard work, but not if you compare it to what lies ahead for anyone with cancer. Still, 60 miles is far. I think we’ve all been affected by some sort of cancer, if not breast cancer, so if you’d like to help Abby reach her goal, you can donate to her fund raising effort here.
Ok, so back to last night: After doing our philanthropic duty by drinking our faces off, Dallas was really hungry so we went to Burrito House, a place that all of my friends have been visiting late-night for years. Somehow I managed to have never gone until last night. I have a feeling that it won’t be my last visit! I had a junior California burrito that was filled with shredded beef. I could only eat half of it so I took half home. It was really great. And close enough that we could sober up on a walk home afterwards.
