Food Review – Chicago 11/30/18-12/2/18

Greetings!

Welcome to a Chicago edition of my latest food blog! Today I will review my latest visit to my brother Brett’s neck of the woods.

The sad part is I do not get enough time to enjoy the city of Chicago. We usually roll in late evening between 8-10 on a Friday, and we leave by 2 ish on Sunday. We try to pack in as much activity as we can, I mean alcoholic beverages.

The beverages of the weekend are a maple old fashioned, that Brett made. The second and third were mulled wines from the Christkindlemarket in Downtown Chicago. There was a regular Gluwein and an apple cinnamon version. So darn good!

I am going to center in one particular meal from the weekend. We were within a short walking distance of an Italian restaurant called La Scarola, which is a building right next to the iconic old school Richards Bar (you can still smoke inside this bar) on Grand Avenue.

The place we had a reservation for 8:00. It is a small and quaint place, but the restaurant sure knows how to pack the customers in.

We started off by sharing a bottle of wine. Then immediately came the bread and butter; Matt is a happy man right now. The bread had some Italian seasoning, which would have been very delicious on its own, but I had to put some butter on it.

We waited for a good amount of time, so our wine and bread can settle in, which absolutely no complaints at all. Honestly I ate too much bread, because when I got my main dish, well you know.

I ordered the lasagna. They had some creative fantastic sounding entrees, but I know what I like, so lasagna it is. Oh my Chicago, that was the best lasagna I’ve ever had. If only I would have eaten less bread. Still, I 100 percent appreciated the presentation, temperature of the food, texture and taste. In my family, I’m the one who “almost always” finishes their meal. Except this meal, I did not. My family thought I was sick, honestly! No I’m kidding, my Mom knew right away!

And the price for four entrees and two bottles of wine, was a very good value for a Chicago, $200 including a 20% tip.

A no brainer 10/10 in my books. One of the best experiences of the year.

 

Just Hours Away

Ladies and Gentleman,

We are just hours away from the Matz iPhone 5/5S case being available on Amazon.com!  Later this evening, we will have this case ready for buyers.  Plus it’s Friday too!  Last day of the work week for some of you, as well as myself.

We will find out if the hard work, to get this case on the market, pays off.

Tomorrow is Friday, The Weekend is Your Reward

Hello alle! Tomorrow is Friday. I just recently came off 9 straight days of work, after being on a mini 4 day vacation. Tomorrow, my 9 hour shift will be over before you know it. Your work day will be over before you know it too. Hang in there! The weekend is your reward. I am just happy to be back blogging about Friday. Take it easy!

Matt

Have a Good Friday and Stay Tuned

It’s another Friday at the office. The Indian Summer continues (supposed to be 78 degrees today). May this day go by fast for you.

Not only am I going to work even harder to make a career out of social media, I am pursuing other work from home opportunities
too. They are out there; the question is, how much effort are you willing to put in? No income opportunity falls on your lap. You’re fooling yourself if you can make $10,000 a month with little work put into it. What I am going to do is share my insights on working from home, from the research I have done. Until then, goodbye!
