After the ferriswheel, we went to Klavs and Mary’s house for yummy snacks, home brewed beer, and good company. We got a chance to talk to Mary’s family for the first time – wonderful and interesting people – and re-connect with Klavs’ huge family, whom we had not seen for years and years. They are also a fantastic bunch and we spent the evening munching and catching up.
Klavs and Mary live in one of the two apartments in this beautiful house on a quiet tree-lined street in the area Wicker Park. In the cab, I noticed that there’s lots of shopping, restaurants and bars in the area, along Damen Av., North Av., Milwaukee Av. and Division Steet.
You can take the Blue Line L to Damen Av. from Downtown Chicago. By bus you can get to the Red Line L, Lincoln Park and the lake front. I will definately be back to shop there with Mary sometime in the future. The stores looked pretty cool. I hope you’re up for that, Mrs. D 🙂
They were also at the party and of course we had a long garden talk, since they have the cutest little garden filled with many of the plants that I love too. They even found the space for a vegetable and herb garden there. Such creative and nice people!
And while a lovely evening drew to its end, the children, a mix of Danes, Canadians and Americans, young kids and older ones, played one of their favorite games of the night, tag, while the grown-ups sipped drinks and talked about old times, the upcoming July 4th fireworks and other important things 😉
