Scenes from Laura's neighborhood

It's a photogenic city, our dear Chicago...or at least Laura's hood is fun to take pictures in, as I didn't venture too far from her area. And we had markedly warmer weather on Wednesday and were able to stroll around in the late afternoon...




I always try to figure out the House of Boo Radley in every American city...this sort of burned out place on a really nice street, with seeminly in-use mailboxes caught my attention:


I like that in a 4 block radius, you can find Old Style signs with "Cold Beer" in Spanish and Polish.




The lovely Laura in her natural environs...


Tara and Laura enjoying Gorditas Pastor for $2.25 each at Las Valoz (I think that is the right name...near Wood and Chicago Streets!). Delicious!!!



And lastly, hanging out with friends old and new at Schubas...my flash was a bit bright at the dark venue...





Have a nice weekend, we're in Madison and already snow has fallen three different times!

Did you know that Jake Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst have joint custody of dogs named Boo Radley and Atticus? Doesn't that make you want to hug JG all the more ('cause you know KD had nothing to do with the naming)?
