My best friend came down to visit from Paris last week. She was my coworker but we became the bestest of friends in a short manner of time. Our company has an annual boat party every year at Navy Pier. This year as I was getting back in my Uber, I noticed this super cute place that seemed like it had a really nice vibe called the Hampton Social. All I saw driving by was big windows and that’s what drew me in. Right that second I told myself I HAVE to go there for lunch sometime. I actually whatsapped the best friend/coworker saying we have to go here and of course she agreed but it took her moving to Paris for us to actually go. On another note, I’ve been thinking for the past few days. When it comes to this blog, I haven’t been unapologetically myself. I kept thinking about what was politically correct to say or not say on my blog. And honestly, nobody really gives a shit about my self censor. This blog is to pen my thoughts, feelings, and food (which is basically my life summed up), so that’s what I’m going to do. I don’t think I’ll offend anyone because I’m not an offensive person and I like billions of human beings have a voice that I can use unapologetically. So here goes. Also, there’s squiggly lines under unapologetically in this post but it’s an adverb, so I am being fed lies by this editor lol. But back to this super cute restaurant we went to that has you feeling like you’re on a pier in Maine with that fresh seafood smell that hits you soon as you walk in. There’s a difference between stanky seafood smell and a good seafood smell though and the Hampton Social has a good one. Honestly I had the best squid ink linguine in my life at this place.
