What did we love? Snack basket upon arrival was a welcome treat after a long day of driving. Game of Thrones season premiered when we were there so Dish TV on a nice large screen was certainly enjoyed by those in the party who wouldn't have missed it. Nice large TV in the great room and master BR. Master Bedroom with en suite up on the 2nd floor was large and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked and the unit was comfortable. It felt safe. Minimal street noise. Deck out over garage was delightful and private with comfortable and plentiful seating and we had a blast drinking wine and playing some family party games. Plentiful towels and bedding. Help yourself to a $10 mani at the salon next door. The bakery down the street had delicious cheesecake and the pizzeria down the block was perfect for a night spent in. Seems like a small detail but two trash cans was nice. Cash only liquor store a few blocks away and there are some great restaurants within walking distance. We Uber'd to Big Town for tacos and had a blast. This was the easiest rental we've had when it comes to getting around in a car with easy, easy access to the freeway. There were lots of menus, reference guides, maps, and Chicago sightseeing info available for us.
A must have in your closet is a leather pencil skirt. Just like you should have the staples which consist of a little black dress and a great pair of skinny jeans, I’m adding leather pencil skirts to the list. Although they may not seem as versatile as the other garments I named, I can assure you they are. Leather skirts are more of a Fall item however they can be worn in different seasons. They are the perfect blend of sophistication and edge, giving them the ability to be worn for a variety of different occasions. Dressed up with a chic top and heels or dressed down with a graphic tee or a sweater, the styling possibilities are endless. The most basic leather pencil skirt that you can have is a black one but if you want something a little out of the ordinary, you can choose a different color such as the one I’m wearing.
It's not obvious. Murray is not theatrical. He does not wear arm garters or shake things above his head. His endless energy is more about efficiency. Speed. Simplicity. We've seen him glance at a long recipe brought in by a guest, then leave. Did he blow that guy off? After forty-five seconds, he returned with the drink. "Good find!" he said. There is no way he memorized that recipe. There is no way he found the ingredients so quickly. There is no way the cocktail is any good. But thenyou sip. And you understand. Each drink Murray pours is a mini-revelation, an introduction to rare spirits and a bold use of common ones. Behold the Sayonara, whose slow, intense pepper-infused-tequila burn can only be soothed by the sourness from a sip of the same drink: fire and extinguisher in a single glass.
