Here are some of the things that were on my itinerary this last time around:
PIZZA W// MY LOVES
BULLS VS. ROCKETS
INTERNATIONAL HOUSEWARES EXPO
As far as pre-production goes for one of these things I imagine my experience was one of the more fun, I enjoyed my co-workers, believe in the company I was working for, learned a lot and my work was compensated & appreciated.

The party moved from Rock Bottom to John Barleycorn's where I made a new friend and took 3 (three too many) shots of Jameson. After that we ate some Chipotle to soak up some bad decisions, we took a train somewhere and I may have been on a soap box about my intoxication (info based on a snap chat I later saw), then I took an impromptu nap at my pal MP's apartment.
I awoke refreshed and ready for round two, I guess. We hit up another buddy's apartment, a liquor store, then a place called Kasey's on printers row (according to Foursquare) and lastly Stout perhaps? I was drinking beer until about 4 I think, I should plead the fifth but after that I bought a Walgreens cheese pizza and of course burnt it so badly that it was never consumed.
So basically it was a typical St. Patty's Day celebration.
DISCLAIMER: I mean no disrespect to Irish heritage, I've seen a few people on the internet making a stink and refusing to drink a beer as some sort of protest. My getting drunk on this 'holiday' is simply because I am a twenty something who honestly would be doing it in any case, I don't need a culture endorsed reason to do so.
I went to Chicago Cut with a new pal. To be frank I probably instigated the world's longest lunch, 5 hours and 5 cocktails past noon my new friend and I were drunk and he had to head back to the office, poor schmuck. I got to take the L back to Wrigleyville and eat my leftovers all sleepily, preparing for my flight back to MSP in the morning.
- I took a selfie with James Harden's butt in the background, although his butt was covered by jeans and an amazing exaggeratedly long sweatshirt this photo might not ever surface. JH is definitely the most fashionable player that I saw post-game.
- I did not go to Millennium Park.
- I lusted after players from the Nashville Predators hockey team in the lobby of the Ritz Carlton.
