Sunday was a full and fun day.
After a great start with homemade buttermilk pancakes that I was allowed to put homemade blueberry sauce on (reminder to self - post about blueberry sauce) we went to a Broadway-in-Chicago musical.
Maybe you've heard of it? It's about this British kid that wants to dance the ballet. Great dancing, singing and acting. But I have not heard "piss-off" that much since the time in a UK pub and the footballers stormed in. Oh, the name of the musical - Billy Elliot.
Not far from the theater district, the Chicago streets were a total mess.
Hollywood has descended on Chicago. The movie Transformers 3 is being filmed in Chicago this summer. A week or so back, they filmed base jumpers (crazies if you ask me) jumping off the top of that big shiny Trump tower seen here:
I can remember when transformer meant an electrical device to transform voltages in a circuit.
We finished the day off with a great meal and beers at the Hopleaf tavern on Clark St. They are known for their great beer selection. Also the mussels for two are excellent.
Having a few beers and thinking about a major Hollywood movie being in town, I thought I should change into character with some shades.
Would you be interested in autograph prints of this photo?
I didn't think so.
