Staycation

Well, summer is just wrapping up with the first day of autumn quick on it’s heels. I just got back from where I’m still at, and man was that an awesome week!

One great thing I’ll say about living in Chicago is that you aren’t left wanting when it comes to entertainment. I went to jazz fests, Greek fests, aquariums, historic museums, movies in the park, and more!

Also, I got a chance to hit all my favorite micro breweries, and some new ones as well. My fridge is was full of growlers! In fact it’s rekindled my interest in home brewing again, and I think I might just take my first plunge. One other thing I’ve come to love about craft beers, other than the amazing taste, is the artwork that goes into the packaging. One brewer of note is the Flying Dog Brewery. They’ve actually partnered with renowned British cartoonist Ralph Steadman who’s widely known for his artwork he did for legendary author, Hunter S. Thompson.

I think I just might have found a new calling.
