Volunteering and participating--two words my parents definitely taught me all my life! After graduating from school, I wanted to get involved not just volunteer for random events, but something to really put my blood sweat and tears into. That's when I found Big Shoulders Fund (bigshouldersfund.org). Big Shoulders Fund was formed by Cardinal George and some business CEOs as a way to raise scholarships so inner city children could receive a Catholic and good education.
"I really need a good belly aching laugh!" I was in one of those moods the other night so I had to try to find something to do! Thank god with the help of google and a little inspiration, I found iO Comedy Club. We went and got some good laughs. For an hour and a half of free improv comedy I would definitely go back again! With a full bar and lots of changes, how can you not have fun! It was a great date place and a place I'll definitely go back to again :)

I have a bucket list of things to do in Chicago that I want crossed off. I finally got the changce to cross something off--eating at Hot Dougs (hotdougs.com). For all the food lovers out there as well as hot dog lovers this place is for you. My friend and I ventured there at 10am on Saturday to wait in line! Everyone was in a great mood and the weather was beautiful. Hot Doug's opened at 10:30 and the wait was totally worth it! Doug actually took our order and greated us at the door! I had the "buffalo" meat and bleu cheese hot dog with duck fat fries. The hot doug melted in my mouth and with the crunchy onions and "special" mustard sauce, it was really delectable! It was the blending of perfection! The duck fat fries were light and airy and had a great taste to them.
