You turn around and it’s already Labor Day. Seven months ago today we were buried under almost three feet of snow. Translation: in a few short months we will again be buried under snow.
Take the afternoon off. Take the day off and get outside. I had the opportunity to hang out downtown yesterday and had a lot of fun. I got outside and stayed outside. I had lunch at Millennium Park’s Park Grill (outdoors) with Lee, a bartender there. I listened to music at Pritzker Pavilion. I saw kids screaming in Crown Fountain. I walked Michigan Avenue. I took pictures of Trump Tower and shopped for tourist trinkets. Our city is quite impressive when you have an opportunity to stop, watch and listen to it breathe.
I understand, the couch is comfortable; but it will be just as comfortable in five months when there is a foot of snow on the ground and its 20 degrees. Get outside; enjoy Chicago and our last weekend of summer
