Patrick and I headed up to Lakeview on Sunday in search of a cupcake from Southport Grocery after reading this Zagat feature about 20 dishes you must try to call yourself a Chicagoan.  I've lived in Chicago for 5 years, and lived near Chicago for my whole life, and have only had 8 of the dishes!  Shameful!  So needless to say were working on checking all of them off.  The cupcake wasn't anything groundbreaking or iconically 'Chicago' but it was simple and delicious which is fine by me.  Next on our list is trying the corned beef at Manny's Deli.

I had seen this colorful mural before on Style Charade, one of my favorite blogs, and always really liked it.   So you can imagine how pleased I was when we just happened upon it naturally when getting off the Southport Brown line stop months ago.  I made a mental note to come back with the right outfit (and/or cupcake agenda).

Thanks for reading!
