Turkey for Turkey Day

Turkish Airlines is having a great sale on non-stop flights from Chicago to Istanbul in November. We are seriously thinking about taking a 9 day trip over Thanksgiving to Istanbul and Cappadocia. For now I have 2 travel guides I'll be reading on my 6 hour drive back to Ohio tomorrow.

Adobo Grill Part II

I have been a bad blogger lately. But there have been no new shoes, no new trips, and no new restaurants lately. We head off to San Francisco for Labor Day weekend. And I'm trying to convince The Husband to go to Denmark and Sweden (or really anywhere in Europe) over Thanksgiving but I don't think he has any extra vacation days. And we probably shouldn't be spending a couple grand unplanned anyway. Plus once we've made it to Thanksgiving, our Thailand trip is very close.

We did return to Adobo Grill the other night, this time to the one on Division Street. I'm changing my review to skip it. The food was nothing more than okay and with all the delicious other choices in town you should pick another restaurant. I should have realized the experience would be bad when as soon as I ordered a strawberry daiquiri (I don't do tequila and margaritas) they told me they had no Bacardi. No rum in an entire restaurant? Plus I'm pretty sure there was a liquor store within walking distance. My current pick for Mexican is De Cero so try there instead.

We're off to Wisconsin! I've lived in the midwest almost my entire life and in Chicago for 3.5 years and I've never been to Wisconsin. That's all about to change as we just booked tickets on the Megabus to Milwaukee for our anniversary weekend in September for a grand total of $4.50. As it gets closer we're hoping to get a hotel through Priceline for a good price.

Milwaukee for our romantic.
