I was turned on to something new a few years ago.  It’s called Mukbang. Strange word, right?  Well, wait until you find out what it is!  It started in Korea, and they had a television show where people would sit and eat in front of the camera and people would watch them, and send them ...

For the record, I am a curious person by nature.  I actually like this attribute to my personality, although on more than one occasion it has gotten me into some trouble. Well, over the weekend, I decided that before I went to work, I needed to go visit one of my favorite City Vegan restaurants. ... Read more »

Some Like It Hot!

Some Like It Hot!
Today was hot…real hot… I even heard some people complaining about it.  People didn’t want to go outside because it was hot.  And, for the most part, I have to agree with them…it was HOT!

From Chicago to Chebanse

I like to live my life in the City.  Everything I like to do, I can find in the City.  So when circumstances present themselves, and I have to leave the City, it makes me a little nervous. I haven’t always been this way.  Actually, it used to be that the opposite was true.  Let... Read more »

I'm Amy, I'll be your Chicago Tour Guide!

There aren’t too many things in the world better (in my opinion) than to give someone a tour of the city that you love.  I had that wonderful opportunity to do that this week when there was a Graphic Artist Conference at the Hyatt Regency.  Let me give you a little background.   5 years...
