Chicago Is a Fine Seductress

Hey, I’m in Chicago.

Last night I went to a show (cuz I’m a theater nerd like that) and then went to see some really, really bad stand-up comedy (because I like to die a slow, painful, humorless death).  I then traversed back to my friend’s apartment where we promptly went on the roof with a guitarist and a fiddler.  

The best part about mingling with entertainers is that there is always an odd variety of talents hanging out in your social circle.  One never knows when a professional-grade picture will show up on Facebook thanks to my photographer friend.  Or perhaps a random, improvised dance will bust out in public by a couple of my Dance degree friends.  

Last night, it was a random blue grass concert.

So standing up on the roof with a beautiful Chicago skyline before me and a little twangy music behind me, I thought – I could really get used to this place. Chicago, that is.  Then again, I’m sure that if I hung around for any extended period of time, I would find that blue grass bands and rooftops are only a sometimes snack.  So they can’t really be the reason I come here to stay.

Today I will go out and eat delicious food and celebrate having survived the terrifying experience of human flight.   I will walk amongst the Chicagoans and see if they can smell the Central PA lingering on me (it’s something like Amish mixed with cow manure).  And I will – mark my words – eat an absolutely divine piece of Chicago pizza.  I will not sleep until it is done.

I’m tending to important things here.  Pizza is certainly worth moving for.

      It’d better be everything it’s been talked up to be. I’m a harsh pizza critic.

    Have fun in Chicago – it’s a great city! But I’m not wild about the pizza (sorry! Sorry!). Try a hotdog.
