Out With Malia

September 13th, 2014 · No Comments


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!

Enjoying Our First Parents Night Out

July 13th, 2014 · No Comments


One Friday per month our daycare center gives you the option to leave your child there until 9:30 p.m. for $20. So that’s three extra hours at less than $7/hour. What a bargain! Dallas and I ended up going to Revolution Brewing with Adam. And then we headed over to the Whistler for a few fancy cocktails. Next was Analogue, where Andy, Jess, Chris, Mike and Todd met up with us. Analogue opened in December and I’d never been. I liked it. We only had drinks, so I can’t judge the food, but the drinks were super tasty. Makes sense, since two of the founders of this place are Violet Hour vets.

I felt a little bad that Makai was at daycare for 12 hours that night, but he was with one of his class teachers, so at least he had a familiar person to be with at night. And I’m sure he had fun with the kids… we sure had fun with our friends!

Koloa Rum

October 24th, 2012 · No Comments

On our interisland flight to Kauai we saw an ad for Koloa Rum which said it was distilled and bottled on Kauai. Really? This was news to us! When we were driving from the airport to our rental house, we passed right by the tasting room and got really interested. We didn’t have time to actually visit the tasting room, but we bought a bottle of the spiced rum (also available are dark, white and gold) at Big Save. We liked it enough that I wanted to take some back with me. Instead I looked online to see where I could order it, and guess what? Binny’s in Chicago carries it, and not only that, it is served at The Whistler, Boiler Room and Scofflaw right in our neighborhood!

I’ve been reading up on Koloa Rum on The Rum Collective and Booze Blogger and am excited to get some to drink here in Chicago!
