Time Traveling in Chicago

Omg- Aliens, Raptures, unpaid ransoms (even though I’m so worth it :)) it’s no wonder I haven’t been able to get a post up this week!


But not to worry, I’m safe and sound in one of my favourite cities;

And looking forward to going on a culinary time-traveling experience tonight,



I promise to report back with all the details, and hopefully a few photos (if possible without a flash)

Right now, my menfolk are waiting for me…

Have to go out for some serious walkies to prep our palates for Paris 1906!

More later…



  1. Hi Slim!!
    I live in Chicago!! Next is amazing – just went two weeks ago. I know youve been to Alinea but you also need to go to Schwa! Love you and your blog! Enjoy Chicago! xx

  2. Slim how exciting, will wait for more details!

  3. Gwyneth was just in the windy city. Check out Goop for her fave places. Although I seriously doubt she has anything on you. xox

  4. You crack me up! Or is it the three olive martini hubbie just made me (and then deserted me for the Financial TImes?) Will you please write a book? A very funny philosophical book?

  5. Can’t wait to hear about Next! My Alinea cohorts and I were just talking about this last night, wondering how soon (if ever) we’d be able to score some tickets! Guess I’ll just have to live vicariously through you in the meantime!

  6. slim! i was in santa barbara when you were in chicago! your recommendations were spot-on, like i would expect anything less. craving another cocktail from hungry cat, and a stroll through lotusland. we also loved lunching at jane and relaxing at the coral casino. i’ll be bask asap.

    i’m totally jealous you’ve been to next before me, so i doubt you need travel tips about chicago but i would love to *try* and repay your favor when you come back again.

    can’t wait for the post. thanks for everything!

Would love to hear from you!
