city life...for the weekend

this past weekend was another fun one in chicago. i've been going downtown a lot more often over the past few weeks, and have checked out a lot of new places :) my little sister is happy about this slight change in my weekend plans, b/c we're going out around her new place in river north. 

saturday we grabbed dinner at sushi samba. i really liked the atmosphere, the sushi was great, and the bubble tail drinks were amazing! and we scored some free shots b/c it took a while to get seated. pretty good deal ;) if you're ever in the area and love sushi, be sure to check it out. (my apologies for not getting photos of the actual sushi. the lighting at our table wasn't working too well.)

after dinner we stopped by pops for champagne. we only had to wait a bit to snag a table, and the four of us (denny, krystina, chester, and myself) enjoyed a bottle. and we managed to score free shots again! our server insisted that we have a shot with him b/c we were his first "normal" table. another good deal :)

after champagne, we got in a cab and met up with my sister and her friends at english. it was a little loud and pretty crowded, but it was cool to check out a new bar. we hung out for a few drinks, then headed back to the 'burbs. it was a great night out with great friends. and it sounds like this weekend will be another "city" one, i'm already excited. c'mon friday!
