First off, I wanted to address a couple questions I got on my Friday post about my dress. People wanted to know where I got it. I got it on clearance (or maybe just a really really good sale?) on Banana Republic’s website. I also googled like crazy until I found free shipping. Because I’m not happy unless I think I’m getting a deal…
So yesterday I took a trip to Wrigleyville for another monthly date- it’s Lunch Club time!
This month it was Scott’s pick and he decided to try a new route with the German Pub, Uberstein. As soon as we were all there, we made sure to start the “meeting” off with a toast:Prosit! Did you know that means “good health” in German? I like it!
This place was fun. There was a small menu, but they covered all the basics for sure. Ironically, I’m 100% German yet I don’t eat a lot of the “real deal” when it comes to German food. Weird, right?I tried the “Sheboygan”, which was a pork brat. It came with German potato salad and sauerkraut. I’m not a fan of sauerkraut, but substitutions weren’t allowed. So I just stayed away from that part of the plate. The potato salad was pretty good, though- and I don’t frequently eat that, either!
Jaime got the “Thuringer” brat- it consisted of veal and pork.We traded bites to compare at one point. There was definite agreement that I ordered the better choice. The pork had much more spice. One thing I loved about both of our brats is that it came on a pretzel bun. Pretzel buns are genius. And I think more restaurants should have them. Because I would make sure to get it. Every time.
Scott was the one who got down to business- Uber Bier Cheese Fries and Goulash.The Goulash was tasty. But let’s talk for a minute about those cheese fries. Holy crap. That cheese they used was no velveeta- it was the real deal. And it.was.awesome. If you ever find yourself at Uberstein, this is the one thing you have to get without hesitation. SO good.
No lunch club is complete without dessert. And what else would we get? (Actually, it was the only dessert on the menu, but I’m sure it would have been our top pick, anyways….)We won’t discuss how quickly this disappeared. It was a lunch club record. No discussion. Just eating.
Another success. That makes us 8/8. Honestly, though, it doesn’t take much to please us. Food is good. So we’re not overly critical…
Today is a rainy one. I was hoping for a little more pool time with one of the neighbor gals that has recently moved in. I doubt that will happen. But I do need to go pick up a bridesmaid dress that came in for my friend Ashlee’s wedding in September. I also need to tell them that I need to stop getting crap from vendors in the mail. Because I ordered my dress somewhere different than all the other girls (who are still mostly in Missouri), I had to register myself at House of Brides. Awesome. I really shouldn’t have done that. So now… they think I’m the one getting married. I get mail. I get calls. I get annoyed. Seriously… it’s embarrassing having to explain to the person on the phone, “no, I’m not getting married and you are mistaken about my upcoming wedding.” I’m very much single. I just ordered a dress. Which I will happily take and go on my merry way. I paid you, now please f-ing leave me alone. Thanks.
I think next time I get a call like that, I’m going to start making up stories. I’ll think of a good one…
I just did a bit of walking and yoga to warmup and stretch the muscles a bit. Now I’m off to shower off the sweaty mess that I am. Peace out kids.
