Instead of doing another full post on my trip to Oktoberfest, I think I will let my story over on exposure.co do the talking. I wrote that soon after returning from Germany when my feelings and memories were fresh, so it is definitely the most accurate representation of what went down and how it affected me. It was the trip of a lifetime, and definitely something I will always remember.

The full story is embedded below if you'd prefer not to link over. Thank you for reading. I have also posted the full set of photos over on Flickr.

Drinks in Logan Square

I visited the Milwaukee Avenue Art Fest in Logan Square last weekend with Lisa, Elena, and Andrew. Times were good, as usual, but we definitely concentrated less on the "art" section and more on the "fest" section in case you hadn't noticed. We followed up with some killer cocktails at Longman & Eagle just in time for the skies to open up and douse the area with a flash thunderstorm. The sun broke through again at the perfect time, just as we were finishing our second round, and we decided to make one more stop at Revolution Brewery where we ran into some friendly staff, good food, better beer, and some super huge hipster a-holes!

Willis (Sears) Tower Skydeck

Made a visit here on a whim... I haven't been up here in probably 25 years or more. It doesn't matter how old you are though— it's still amazing. If you don't mind spending $19 for an elevator ride, I'd definitely recommend it as there are only a few places in the world to get this kind of vantage point.

FYI I didn't, and will never, ever, step out on the transparent death ledge.
