Let's start with our Saturday trip to Platform Beer Co. which can be described in two words: simply fantastic. There's a great urban feel, bar games, open air and a rotation of food trucks and local restaurants providing sustenance.
What's ironic about my calling a beer only bar fantastic is that, gulp, I don't like beer. Well, let's say I used to not like beer... I'm at the point where I can publicly acknowledge that fruity ones are growing on me. Think summer shandy, think raspberry, think cherry.
Fact: this wine, bubbles and bourbon only gal has probably had more beer in the last three months than I've had in the last ten years.

Sunday brought one of my favorite days of the summer: Taste of Tremont. The 12th annual event always makes for an awesome Sunday Funday. Thanks to our friend DBLB we had a swanky Tremont townhouse to pre-party with mimosas, music and meat and cheese from the West Side Market.
I'm pretty sure we didn't technically venture to ToT until 5pm when we finally made our way to the Treehouse to see The Boys From County Hell. The Treehouse patio was the place to be - friends were everywhere!
|It's my blog so I suppose I'm allowed to share a quad of "me and my friends" pics on the Treehouse patio, right?

Please don't ever end, summer, I'm having WAY TOO MUCH FUN. This really is CLE.
Happy Thursday, kids.
