On Friday, I was able to escape again for a walk around downtown. This time, I walked the few short blocks east to Navy Pier.
After that, I walked north on the boardwalk next to the lake. I kept looking for a place to cross Lake Shore Drive and ended up all the way at Oak Street Beach. Without even meaning to, I walked back towards Aunt Sandra’s down the infamous Michigan Avenue.
I passed Hancock Building on the way.
After more packing in the afternoon, Aunt Sandra rewarded me with a fantastic dinner out with my Aunt Gale, cousin Jeff and his girlfriend, Jill.
It was a really interesting, unique restaurant called Texas de Brazil.
Treat yourself to our 50-60 item seasonal salad area that includes appetizers, gourmet vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken, and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread.
After enjoying items from the salad bar, I sampled all of the meats, a low-carb eaters delight!
