We took an almost spontaneous trip to Chicago a few weekends ago to visit Alan’s best bro Andrew (and to catch the last day of Riot Fest). I say “almost” because we tentatively planned it for a week or so. As in, we both asked for a day off from work in advance. We are not spontaneous people. We arrived late on Friday night, and left Monday morning.
On Saturday evening after a while of Alan and me being tourists in downtown Chicago, we met back up with our pals at Longman & Eagle and got a few drinks before heading out later for a neato house show with cool bands and junk.
