Summer in the *Gluten Free* City.

It's well into summer - time sure flies, eh?

I've been busy. Just in June alone I "ran" the Color Run, took in some White Sox Baseball, hit up Movies in the Park, biked to work during Bike to Work Week, got my books on at the Printers Row Lit Fest, laughed my ass off at Just for Laughs, ate local with my Farmers Market fare, brunched with old friends, and drank lots and lots of Woodchuck Cider at a Gluten Free Cider Dinner.

Comiskey Dogs has gluten free hot dog buns, there's my badass bike, some delicious elote, friends, Rebecca Skloot & David Prete at the Lit Fest, Pee Wee's Big Adventure in Millennium Park, & The Bloggess herself, Jenny Lawson.

The Woodchuck Cider Dinner was outstanding - everything was so delicious, especially the pizza - corn, prosciutto, & fresh basil. Yum!

I'm exhausted. Literally. The funny thing is, that's not even a fraction of what's been going on in this awesome city. Summer is the "love" part in my love/hate relationship with Chicago. The weather is great, there is a handful of festivals every weekend, loads of things to do during the week and lots plenty of sun shining days.

With that said, there's no slowing down. More festivals, birthdays, Sox games, BBQs and good times are on the way. I'll be sure to share all of my gluten free findings - so far there has been plenty!

What's your favorite part of summer?

Was Jenny Lawson awesome? We went down to LitFest but got there too late to see her :(

Of course! She is soooo funny and down to earth. I really enjoyed her stories and the Q&A with her. Sorry you missed it!!
