PBR at Bangers and Lace

I can ride a bike, it was just too tall.

A random night out at the bars in Chicago, as told by my Twitter feed.

When Twitter first came about I didn’t really get it. And when I got Twitter I didn’t really get it. And when I got Twitter I always said I would never be one of those people who stops everything they are doing to tweet about it…

But who are we kidding, right?

Friday night I went out with Emily (who I haven’t seen in forever and a half) and Heather to Bangers and Lace for a birthday party of two guys I don’t know. And here is my night, stolen from my cell phone photos and Twitter feed…

Off to Bangers and Lace and then probably ending my night at the Southern. Ah, I like nights when I feel like I have a life!

Going to order a japanese beer that supposedly tastes like orange juice…

Japanese owl beer!!

(Seriously, I kept seeing this beer with an owl on it and thinking it was cute, and then I randomly ordered a Japanese beer because it said it tasted like orange juice and it turned out to be the owl beer! I was so happy!)

Who orders that much pbr?

This would have been more artistic if my phone didn’t try to overexpose it

(At this point Heather left and I sat alone at a table in the bar for a bit…)

The world needs my random semidrunken twitter babble, right?

Mmm, hot toddy

You’re leaving me in a dark alley by myself?

(“Yes I walked you all through Wicker Park to leave you alone in a well lit alley”)

M: look at the rating it has 5 stars! V: that’s the rating you gave it on netflix.

(We watched Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs…)


I am way too much of a morning person to go home with a bartender…

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
