Chicago x2

I have gone to Chicago for the past two consecutive weekends.  The first time was Scav Hunt.  It was AMAZING as always.  Quite tiring through, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  If you haven't come to Chicago to play for my team, why not?  What are you doing next mother's day weekend?  I do not have time to go on a long rant / ramble about Scav because that will be pages and pages of text.  My personal favorite item:  Playing Settlers of Catan on a board where the tiles were at least two feet across.  You had to walk across the board.  Pretty awesome.

This past weekend, I returned to Chicago.  My girlfriend wanted to go to the Green Festival held at Navy Pier and so we went.  The best thing about it for me were A) all of the tasty vegetarian food and B) this amazingly comfortable non-toxic / organic memory foam bed that was wonderful to sleep on but at least $2000.  I stayed with a friend from College for both nights and we saw Star Trek together with a group of people in downtown Chicago.  On Sunday today, I met up with a group of friends / acquaintances from Madison (and elsewhere) for food at Reza's, a Persian restaurant in Andersonville.  It was tasty (as usual) but too expensive for what they had.  After some shopping around West Rogers Park and Skokie, my girlfriend and I went to visit a friend of hers in Mt Prospect.  I picked up the game Puerto Rico for the evening entertainment, so for those of you around, we can play that now.
