I’m a little late to the game, but how was your weekend?
As expected, my weekend of downtime and relaxation was anything but. Then again, after getting some pretty exciting news, it seemed only right to go celebrate a little, right?
A few of my gal pals came together on Saturday night (so there was that Friday night spent on the couch like planned- semi success!) for a nice dinner out at Tango Sur- an Argentinian BYOB steakhouse in the Lakeview neighborhood. I’d only heard good things about this place, so there were high expectations.
Well… the only negatives I heard were that you should expect a wait and you may walk out of the restaurant smelling of garlic.
And both of those things only validate their original claims- the food is good, yo.
I’m aware it’s a steakhouse, and a good portion of their menu is red meat, but I still opted for chicken. Weird. I know.
It goes best with white wine, anyway.
After a week of 40-degree swings in weather, it turned out to be a beautiful night. With good food and wine that flowed all too freely.
The rest of the night was spent dancing in spaces that probably weren’t meant for dancing and sleeping in (relatively speaking), followed by a lazy Sunday of walking around downtown to stretch out the limbs and cancel out a bit of those honey BBQ fritos we took down at 2:00 in the morning.
I’m still a little mortified about that minor frito detail.
Did I not tell you why we were celebrating?
I guess I can now.
After almost 4 years at the same company, I’ve accepted a position elsewhere. I’ll be doing some of the same things and some new things, but in a completely different industry.
Putting in my two weeks was difficult. Bittersweet. I’m very much excited about the new position/company. But it’s a very sad thing to leave the first and only job I’ve had since moving to Chicago. The small staff I work with is extremely close. My coworker Jaime took me in like a sister- showing me the ropes of the job and the city, while giving me a family to fall back on when I needed it.
I look forward to what the future holds in my new endeavor. I promise to still be “here” on the blog regularly, but please be patient with the new schedule I’ll surely acquire.
Remember- “Randomness” is in the title for a reason. It covers my butt during times like these.
Now let’s go celebrate some more, shall we?
