Good food, music

On Saturday, I went to The Chicago Diner at 3411 N Halsted with some friends for dinner. It's a vegan/vegetarian place and it was really good! We were all in awe at the choices. Chris and Katie are both veggies; Dan (Katie's brother) and I still eat meat, though less now that we used to. It was hard to decide! For appetizers we had mushroom and spinach quesadillas and some nachos with fake-meat chorizo. For the entree, I settled on a red pepper ravioli that was quite delicious. Others ordered seitan burgers and a pulled seitan BBQ sandwich. It was all really good, and I'll definitely be back!

After the delicious meal, Chris and I went to Kingston Mines, a blues club that's been around since 1968. Quality music, I'll tell you. Watching those guitarists play so effortlessly made me so, so jealous. The place is clean and orderly, not super expensive and they have an air filtration system that works wonders. It was a good weekend :)
