A quick weekend getaway

We're headed to Chicago tomorrow morning for a few days away.  I suppose our timing couldn't be better - hello two feet of snow!!..  Even with all the bonzo weather they've been having, I'm looking forward to a nice (and needed) weekend getaway.  We're staying at Longman & Eagle . We took recommendations via Twitter last week & this looked so charming!  They won me over with their nicely appointed rooms and the whisky bar downstairs.  So even if we don't brave the snow, we could just pretend we're holed up in a ski lodge with really good food and booze.  Either way, I'm looking forward to a nice weekend.

Jeremy will be playing with Joan of Arc this weekend.  The show should be incredible.  It's at The Hideout.  Joan of Arc will be performing as The Lightbox Orchestra with Fred Lonberg-Holm for the launch of a new collaborative project between Tim Kinsella and everyone else.  I'm looking forward to it!  If you'll be there, come say hi!

p.s. the show happens to be sunday night...when the steelers are playing the packers...we're reeeeaaally hoping the hideout has a tv tuned to the game....go steelers!!!


  1. I hope you enjoy your stay, it's a mess down here! -Mia

  2. Thanks for the Longman & Eagle reco -- have been looking for a great (affordable) place to stay in Chicago. Have fun!

  3. Hope you had fun! It's too bad you didn't come in spring, I absolutely adore Chicago then. I love my city, I do, but the winter drags on!

    By the way, have you ever thought of doing a pro camera bag for the shop? There are next to no stylish and functional designs out there right now!
