Winter welcome

Some nights turn out so well that there really aren’t words that can summarize well.  This past Friday I made a night of the traditional German Christkindlemarket in downtown Chicago (Bratwust and sauerkraut!) followed by a trip to the Millenium Park skating rink.  Between Christmas carols at the Cloud Gate and a 20 minute zambonie break in our skating attempts, we were overdue for some warmth.  After an on-the-fly but off-the-menu butterfish creation from the chef, lobster potstickers, the feeling returning to my toes and a perfectly mixed martini, there wasn’t a complaint to be heard.  It almost seemed too good to be true when there was a snowfall in the morning – snowglobe style flakes and all.  Only one more week until Laura and I get to celebrate with the family and I’m certainly looking forward to it!

Happy early holidays…
