    I love grabbing dinner with my one friend because we always make dinner reservations at like 5 or 5:30. It’s fantastic! We both grew up in the Midwest but are now East Coast transplants and I hate how people eat so late here. I usually eat lunch at noon and dinner at 5. Any time people try making dinner plans later I die a little inside because I know I’ll be starving. Also I just don’t feel good eating that late. I’ve gotten to the point where I refuse dinner plans after 8pm. I will go to hang out and get a drink but I will not go and eat a meal. Plus, early dinners at restaurants are quieter and less busy. And it’s easy to get reservations pretty much anywhere at that time which is why I’m okay with everyone else still eating late, less competition for me.

    We used to have semi-annual clothing swap / cocktail parties in grad school! It was a great way to keep a wardrobe fresh without breaking our budgets. Anything that didn’t get taken went to charity.

    Last year Wrigley Field in Chicago had what they called their “Chefs Series” of food. One stand in the ballpark was taken over periodically (Usually a period of one stretch of home games, sometimes two) by a local chef and food was created by that person. It was fantastic.
    Last summer the chefs involved were Jeff Mauro, Rick Bayless, Graham Eliot, Stephanie Izard, and Matthias Merges.

    Since my husband and I share season tickets with a few other couples, we were lucky enough to try every chef’s menu. Surprisingly, our favorite was the one we were least familiar with, Matthias Merges. Rick Bayless and Stephanie Izard’s menus were great too. The other too ended up just being Meh to us.

    Looking forward to June when the series starts again and seeing who will be involved this time.
