A few weeks ago, Becky got a bunch of my coworkers together for lunch at Wildberry. I had some super good banana bread french toast. It was nice to get out of the office for an hour!

On Saturday I met some of my awesome coworker friends to see the Under The Sun tour at Ravinia. Under The Sun featured some of the biggest bands of the 90s: Smash Mouth, Sugar Ray, Gin Blossoms, Vertical Horizon, and Fastball. Each band played a short set that included their handful of hits plus maybe one or two other songs. I think I liked Gin Blossoms the best.. just because I really like their music AND they had the most hits in the 90s. I think we counted 6.

It was a fun night of eating and relaxing and waxing nostalgic. Up until the rain started at the end of the Sugar Ray set. We ended up leaving early, before Smash Mouth, which no one was really that excited for anyway! Fun night!

Earlier this week a bunch of Chicagoist staff from the olden days, i.e. back when I was the Editor, got together for drinks at Cole’s in Logan Square. A few people I run into every few months, but many I had not seen for a year or several years. I made everyone line up and take photos just to prove we actually did it. We were all in one room together!

It was great to catch up. Back in the day we all had such close, daily contact. It’s fun to check in with everyone and see how everything is going. I mean, many of us stay in contact online, but in-person is so different. I hope that we can make this a more regular thing, so that years and years don’t go by before I see these dear friends again!
