Last week, Chris and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary! That’s as long as a presidential term!
For the past 3 years, we’ve always ended up going to a comedy event of some sort. We’ve seen Second City, Aziz Ansari, and Russell Brand so far. We can’t find anything that looks good yet (mostly due to the unfortunate hiatus of Just for Laughs, which usually rolls through Chicago this time of year), and in the interest of keeping the streak alive, we’re going to celebrate in 2 parts this year 🙂
Part 1: Food!
Filet mignon for the gentleman and Alaskan salmon with sweet corn risotto for myself. We also finished the evening off with these bad boys:
Seasons 52’s famous “mini-indulgences”! We got a s’mores and almond amaretto – Delicious!
I also want to give a shout out to the Chicago location we went to. When we first arrived, there was a networking event finishing up in the bar area, so we had to wait a few minutes for a table. As guests from that event were leaving, the hostesses were giving them $25 gift cards. Good-naturedly, I joked to Chris that we should pretend like we were at that event so we could get a gift card, too. Anyway, I think one of the hostesses overheard me, because as we were leaving, she recognized us and pulled me over to give me a gift card (with a wink)! Great customer service, haha!
Seriously, though, it was a really nice, totally unexpected gesture and we will definitely be going back again soon (we would have even without a gift card!).
Anyone experience any random acts of kindness lately?
