Happy Halloween everyone!! I hope you’ve all been stuffed with candy, or spent the day recovering from partying last night.
Let’s just say, going to bed at 4:30 a.m. was surprisingly easy for me, but being productive today because of that, was not.
Anyhow, I love Halloween in Chicago, even if I’m not a big costume person. I love seeing what other people dress up in and their creativity, but I’ve never been the girl who is buying costume parts on eBay months in advance. I love helping people put together their costumes but I’ve never been super creative for myself. It’s weird.
But this year, I put more effort into my costume because I was presented with an insanely awesome idea by TC and Robin, two of the most creative people I know.
That’s right, Panda, Chicago, Pooh and Paddington….BEAR PACK!
We all got into the group costume theme, piecing it together, painting our noses and then sending random, barely coherent tweets out saying BEAR PACK or using our self-imposed Halloween hash tag #bearpack. Yeah, we were pretty excited.
Unfortunately, some partygoers didn’t get the theme, asking if Panda was a skunk and if Paddington was Fievel. Fortunately, the Pack rallied together and corrected their mistakes. However, no one could help me when people asked me Bears questions and when I slipped about being a Packers supporter, it got real ugly.
I cannot wait for Halloween next year!
Even with a crazy Saturday night and low-key Sunday, Friday still left room for some food adventures, including:
Lobster sausage with relish and garlic aioli from Hank’s Haute Dogs (visiting from Hawaii as part of the Art Loop Open event). Seriously, this was ah-mazing. SO GOOD.
Smorgasbord of thai food off the secret Thai menu at Tac Quick. Delish and spicy, yes please!
How was everyone else’s Halloween? What was your costume this year?
