April 25 - Wishbone Restaurant, Chicago. Guests Mike and Pat

Here it is.  Our first video review.  We're with Mike and Pat at Wishbone Restaurant in Chicago, Sunday, April 25, 2010.  We all rated this breakfast very high, as you will see on the video.  I still have to learn how to edit so you'll have bear with it through the beginning.  Enjoy

April 18 - Toast revisited

Kate missed my Sunday breakfast at Toast so we returned today with granddaughter, Jenna (12).  We wondered, how would she do with the fancier breakfast fare?  She did just fine. 

This is a very small restaurant in Lincoln Park.  The food is excellent.  I won't bore you with all the details again.  Go to the original review for more information. Afterwards we walked to Lincoln Zoo where I took lots of videos with my new camera (you'll have to wait until next week to see one).  Then, on Jenna's insistence, we went to her favorite coffee cafe, Starbucks.  When did she get into Starbucks!?  She doesn't even drink coffee yet.  12 going on 18.  Uh, oh.

Birthday weekend, part three - Sunday, April 12, the real day

The fifties are gone.  I am rolling into my sixties with my birthday present, and a dangerous weapon in my hands...a video camera (thank you, Kate).  Watch out.  I will have one soon in a breakfast review.

Birthday weekend, part two - Sunday, April 11

Brunch.  With Becky, Bryon and the kids...Jake, Jenna and Cassidy.  No fan fair, no big party.  Just breakfast casseroles, coffee and family.  Just the way I wanted it. 

My 60th birthday weekend - Friday, April 9, 2010

This was one I just didn't want to make a big deal about.  Kate was great about it. We had a pretty cool weekend starting on Friday with a trip to nostalgia.  We had breakfast a the Fireside Inn in Wauconda, about half way between where I lived from 0 - 9 and where I lived from 9 - 18. 

This is definately more of a local after work and dinner place.  We were the only customers for breakfast, but it was pretty good. I especially liked the sausage.  After breakfast we headed for McHenry favorite place to walk and think.  But I had no idea how much they had expanded the trails.  I lead us down the wrong path, got lost, and we ended up walking at least two hours longer than expected. 
By the time we dragged ourselves back to the car, it was mid afternoon and we were hungry again, so we went to one of my favorite hot dog stands in Volo.
