Liz Birthday Day: Architectural Artifacts, Edgewater Antique Mall, Broadway Antique Market, Bang Bang Pie and Biscuits


Today is Liz’s birthday, and I had a full day of excursions scheduled. First off, we hit up The Bongo Room for breakfast. Since we’re now in Hyde Park, we opted for the Roosevelt location instead of Wicker Park (general note: it still fills up super fast). After eating a delicious breakfast and going over some options on where to visit for the day… we headed out to our first stop: Architectural Artifacts.

CTA Blue Line Trains Without Power at Logan Square


This morning, on our way to work, Liz and I ran into a delay on the Blue Line. Normally, these aren’t any big deal (delays happen all the time, and the lines usually pick up fairly quickly). But today was different. In addition to the platform being packed, both the North and South-bound trains were sitting at the Logan Square stop… and both trains looked to be completely devoid of power.


Fat Rice, Chicago


Potstickers and an order of bao. The potstickers came upside down, and essentially fused together at the base. Though they were a little greasy, they were the good kind of greasy – and the soy sauce was deliciously perfect. The bao we had was a mixture of foie gras and sage, and I have to say… it was the most delicious thing. The flavor seemed to curve upwards towards tasting sweet, but turned back at the last minute. The bao was probably my favorite item from the whole evening.


Logan Square Apartment for Rent, Logan Boulevard and Sacramento


Located near Logan Boulevard and Sacrmento, the apartment is 1400+ square feet, has two bedrooms, a sun room, and tons of windows that overlook the building’s (kinda famous) courtyard as well as Logan Boulevard proper. Prior to us moving in in 2010, the entire apartment had been completely renovated, so everything inside is new. There are tons of closest, and each one has tons of shelving pre-installed. Heat is free, and in the summertime the landlord provides (and installs) AC units for free.
