This past glorious week my dear Chicago has reached temperatures in the 50’s and Betty and I are riding around in a joyous craze! Looking for artistic expression at random, we begin at …
The Handlebar, 2311 W North Ave, for a quick bite and…
Next over to Division Street to explore.
Alliance Bakery & Cafe, 1736 W Division, and Betty obsessing over cake creations.
Monique Meloche Gallery, 2154 W. Division. Gallery hours are Tue – Sat, 11am-6pm. Nobody Knows My Name
Abigail DeVille, http://moniquemeloche.com/onthewall/2582/ February 7 – May 30, 2015
Entrance to Black Bull, 1721 W Division St
Departing Division street at Division and Milwaukee.
A quick fortune in Chinatown (yep)
The bridge at S. Canal leaving Chinatown
And last, with a spring time infatuation, Tiki time…
Lost Lake, 3154 W Diversey, and the latest Tiki bar project from craft cocktail bartender, Paul McGee.
A cozy corner, a Punch Vieux (aged Rhum Agricole, cane sugar, lime), a view…
a view detail (Betty made me do it)…
And last, a big thanks to John for serving up delicious tropical delights (the signature Lost Lake, aged Jamaican rum, passionfruit, lime, pineapple, maraschino, campari)!
So Betty and I are already looking to this next week where temperatures are forecasted to reach 70!!! But before we go we’re extending to all a great big invite to get out there, search for artistic expression, and SHOW ME WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW!
-The residual purpose of art is purposeless play. This play however, is an affirmation of life–Not an attempt to bring order out of chaos nor to suggest improvements in creation, but simply a way of waking up to the very life we’re living, which is so excellent once one gets one’s mind and one’s desires out of its way and lets it act of its own accord. -John Cage
