welcome to chicago!
when i got into o’hare i had to wait for my friend rachel for a few hours to arrive from her flight (she’s a flight attendant)…. so i found a cibo express (the one in jfk is so much better, but i’ll take it). so my lunch/dinner consisted of a vegan chicken salad sandwich (score!), pita chips and some coconut water. i love that major airports are so vegan friendly now. great way to start of my vacation! happy belly.
this is a local bar near rachel’s place that has a few items that can be prepared vegan. we ordered the bean dip (86 sour cream) to munch on while we sipped our cocktails. i think my favorite part of the evening was discovering the southern belle. SWEET TEA VODKA rocks my world. i might never drink vanilla vodka again. sweet tea vodka and lemonade is my new favorite beverage.
so if you want to take me out and buy me a drink (i’m a cheap date too…) this is what you should order. oh em gee. the place itself is adorable. high wooden beams, green foliage and a patio make it super down to earth. i would not go back for dinner per say, but definitely a great cocktails & appetizer kinda place! 😀
