Our one & only requirement when spending time in a different city is to indulge ourselves in the best FOOD & COFFEE.
Our lovely (and very last-minute) hostess, Tiffany, recommended Southport Grocery & Cafe, a fabulous little place in her neighborhood. The bread-pudding pancakes (above) were unimaginably delicious!!
Before hitting the fest, we stopped into Intellegentsia Coffee for a little caffeine fix (which is a Mecca-like establishment in the barista world--trust me, I would know). The Black Cat Classic Espresso is SECOND TO NONE.
Sporting the latest Urban Posture tee at my 3rd (and Wayde's 1st) Lollapalooza Festival!
Blitzen Trapper, Minus the Bear, Yeasayer, Mute Math, and MGMT were some of the acts we caught, all leading up to the true reason we came...
This is a little more what our view actually looked like.
The set was OUT OF CONTROL as they played heaps of new songs from The Suburbs album. Which I'll stop going on about someday, but it really is that good.
Do yourself a solid and FIND A WAY to see this band live. And preferably, at an outdoor music festival...
