2.) Breakfast at Cozy Corner! I took a personal day and hit up this diner down the street, and it was glorious because on the weekends you can't have a table for more than 15 minutes before they literally pick you up and throw you out, but on the glorious, glorious weekdays? Another refill, please.
3.) Lincoln Park Zoo for Kaitlyn's birthday! You're never too old to spend a birthday at the zoo, really.
4.) A note of encouragement in the form of fridge magnets as Andy heads out into the world in his first post-grad social work job.
5.) Free concerts in Millennium Park! This city is really great about free cultural events in the summer time, so we try to take advantage as much as possible.
6.) BABIES! I always laughed at Rockstar Diaries for calling themselves "rockstars" when they do nothing that really warrants it, then I got to be there when my niece and nephew were born, and I take it back. Move the fuck over, Jagger, because the lady in that bed just put you to shame. Welcome to Earth, Calvin & Olivia!
What's happening in your life these days? What is your favorite free thing to do in your city?
