Chicago 2018 – Day Thirteen

It’s my birthday & we have nothing planned today except for lunch with Julie & then a few beers in Lisle with Mrs C.

After yesterday’s storm the air was spot cooler outside but still sunny.

We had a last morning opening birthday cards & reading the kind birthday wishes that had been posted on Facebook.

We managed a quick catch-up with mum & dad, Drew, Josh, Sam, Harry, Nancy, Matt, Warren & Dawn. We missed Lewis as he was working.

At lunchtime Elle kindly drove all four of us to Cooper’s Hawk restaurant & winery, wow very nice indeed.

We all elected to have the lunch size entree’s menu. Elle had the salad & it was big enough for the four of us to eat! Mrs C & Julie had the CHICKEN MADEIRA & I had the COOPER’S HAWK CHICKEN GIARDINIERA. We all had wine except for Elle. Julie had white, Mrs C had Sparkling Rosé & I had Cooper’s Hawk Red. Elle & Mrs C shared a S’MORE BUDINO for desert.

The afternoon was a chilled one with us all sat in the house relaxing. Chris passed through & wished me happy birthday too.

In the evening Mrs C & I headed into Lisle for a couple of drinks, first stop was Evviva bar & grill by Lisle rail station. A busy bar with very casual fittings & a welcoming atmosphere. We had a couple of drinks here before moving on to Lisle Whiskey Bar called NWB. A very trendy smart loaction. We shared the sliders here which were 3 small burger buns, 2 were pulled pork & 1 was a traditional burger – excellent. We had another couple of drinks & I even managed to sneak in a glass of John Drew Rye Whiskey, my first time of trying a Rye a whiskey & it was very nice. Elle kindly picked us up & took us home. Elle also bought me 2 packs of Werther’s toffee – thank you my dear x.

We also managed to speak with Lewis after his work.

Now time for bed.
