Kokopelli

kokopelli

Went to Kokopelli several weeks ago with Jess to check it out. I’d heard people raving about it, but I was not that impressed. Maybe we ordered wrong.. we got one order of trout and one order of octopus tacos and split them. I mean, they were good, but I wasn’t raving to all my friends the next day. Also, I thought the drinks were expensive and small. I would go back and order differently, I think. .. but then again, there are SO MANY taco spots in Wicker Park and Logan Square…

When did the theater on Webster get so fancy!?

I finally saw the The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies with my brother and Jessica over the weekend. The movie has been out a long time so we only had two locations to pick from. The time that worked best brought us to the theater on Webster, which I haven’t been to for probably close to 2 years. I was surprised to see assigned seating, only 5 rows of seats, seats that recline all the way back at the press of a button, tables with every seat. Also, beer and wine at the concessions. And not crappy beer. My brother got some Ale Syndicate craft beer that’s made in my neighborhood.

The movie was pretty good. A good ending. I enjoyed it. You’ll love it if you love fight scenes. There’s a lot of fighting.

And with that comes the end of an era! My brother and I saw all of the Lord of the Rings movies together (the first one came out in 2001!). Even when I didn’t live nearby, we would see them together when I came home for Christmas because the movies always came out at Christmastime. After the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, then they made the three Hobbit movies. This was the last of those movies. I know they can’t make these movies forever, but I’ll miss the tradition!
