Flight 1551

I had the pleasure of visiting Chicago for a weekend, and made a pit stop at a new wine bar in old town. We ordered a flight of red wines that were unique and intriguing.

50 Friends- Mexico City

It is now my third time visiting Mexico City for work. Often times I am content eating dinners at the hotel, but last week, I happily explored an area quite like Rush Street in Chicago. Less than 10 minutes walking from the hotel, I passed through Lincoln Park (sounds like Chicago) and approached a mecca of restaurants lining the streets.

Here are a few things that stood out to me within a few minutes of entering the restaurant.

  • They slice fresh prosciutto
  • They have a beautiful pizza oven
  • They have a garage door which opens so people can eat at the bar from outside the restaurant!

Pizza Al Fresco

Pizza with coworkers is always fun. One of our coworkers, Jordan, suggested an upscale pizzeria he recently visited with his girlfriend. Our group of eight took a nice lunch break and drove up to Worth Avenue, the ‘Fifth Avenue’ of Palm Beach, Florida. The weather was warm, our stomachs were grumbling, and we sat down for a nice meal.
