I think I’ve been spoiled by my back-to-back long weekends. The idea that this coming weekend will only last 2 days is kinda upsetting. Long weekends should pretty much be mandatory during the summer, don’t you think?
I’m so excited about all the new places opening up in Wicker Park and Antique Taco is no exception. I’ve been wanting to trying their food since before we left for Denver but didn’t get to squeeze it in. I finally was able to stop by for lunch on Sunday afternoon. One word: YUM.
Now, I’m not easily impressed when it comes to tacos. But I had the mushroom tacos and they were super yummy (Alex had the ribeye tacos, which I couldn’t try but he assured me they were awesome). They had aqua fresca (watermelon!) and pretty amazing guac. I also discovered their horchata milkshake and I’m pretty sure I’m in love. It’s a super cute storefront and while it’s slightly on the pricey side, it’s a great alternative to Big Star (and their insane 2 hour waits).
Memorial Day was lovely; not only was it Alex and I’s one-year anniversary (!!) but we ended up hanging out with friends in Old Town before heading to Millennium Park for a free concert and a makeshift picnic.
We left just as it started to rain, which was actually nice after two hot days back to back. We ended the weekend with Thai food from one of our go-to spots. The weekend also included: sangria and heart-to-hearts with Angela, a much-need Target run, and Alex and I slowly but surely getting addicted to Game of Thrones.
May is practically over, which is crazy. So much is happening as of June. I’m excited but also nervous; some potentially big changes may be headed my way and I’m going to do my best to embrace them.
How was your holiday weekend?
