The Bachelorette Heads to Chicago

5 years ago

I meant to post this on Friday but was rudely interrupted by a power outage which wouldn't have been too upsetting except that it was 100+ degrees on Friday, so this meant no air conditioning or even a fan! Just the thought of that was kind of terrifying and totally infuriating. Fortunately our power came back on a couple hours later. Thank goodness!

Anywho, I was super-excited to do a little post about The Bachelorette. My mom called me on Monday while she was watching the show to let me know that on Chris and Emily's hometown date in Chicago, (yay Chicago!) the couple ate at a restaurant practically around the corner from my parents' house.

The restaurant is called Smak Tak and is super Polish, just like Chris and lots of folks in my parents' neighborhood. Kevin and I have actually eaten at this restaurant and it is definitely a hidden gem. I also found out that Chris's last name is Bukowski, same as my grandmother's maiden name! Cool, huh? I started to like this guy more and more, but maybe Emily wasn't a fan of Polish food because she sent him packing after this episode. Oh well.
