Happy Kwanzaa and Happy Holidays to all!!!!
Well, I am spending time with my family and friends in the GREAT city of CHICAGO and the NORTH SHORE SUBURBS of the Chicago area!!!
I must tell you that Chicago is a great place to visit and live. It is transforming in spite of the so called “economic tragedy”. Now I am not in denial about the economic transformations going on around the world, but what I am saying is that Chicago is growing and moving forward in spite of this economic transition.
While with a lady friend of mine, we stumbled upon a great boutique on Halsted near the Pilson area called Soultry Shoes (1706 S. Halsted, Chicago, IL – http://www.soultryshoes.com) that will blow your aura upward!! From the time you walk into this shoe and accessory boutique, you will feel a sense of affordable luxury. The owner, Yvette Dudley provides an added comfort to the boutique that you can’t deny. Great boutique!
Also, there is a restaurant called Cantina Laredo – A Modern Mexican Restaurant. Although, the food was good, I didn’t see or taste anything different on the menu that I have not had in a number of authentic Mexican restaurants that I have had the pleasure of dining in. The food was good though. It’s in the 500 block of N. State street (on the corner).
Nothing beats Mom’s cooking!! I can’t give you my Mom’s address however all I need to say is “EXCELLENT” breakfast, lunch, and dinner ALL day and every day during my visit!!!
Now, off to New York City to ring in the NEW YEAR!!!
READY OR NOT, HERE COMES
