Chicago Auto Show Randomness posted

So, Nehru planned on driving to Chicago with some of his STI and EVO buddies last weekend. However, at the last minute someone canceled, which opened up a seat for me. Of course, I accepted.

The drive was definitely interesting. 4 pretty different people with really the only thing in common being our love for cars - and maybe beer. It was a good time, they were cool guys.

Once we got into Chicago we hung out at Nandy's Place for a second. It's pretty tiny, but she is on Wacker and Michigan, wtf. Seriously. So I decided I'd go hang out with some of my other buddies and find a more comfortable place to sleep.

Tag, Clock, and Mikey picked me up at Nandy's around midnight. They played a really good trick on me saying that Mikey was visiting Tag from Finland. He knew finnish, made fun of big american SUVs and everything. I totally bought into it. I even told him that before the night was over I was going to punch him in the balls to teach him some American customs. It turned out to be a straight lie. Dude is not from Finland. Punks.

So we ran to Debonair (Claudia and RH matt's Bar), hung out for a bit and then walked over to Ohm. Ohm is a really cool place, lots of levels, sorta classy, hot bartenders/hired dancers, etc. I liked it. I also accidentally invited a random gay dude to come into the bathroom to pee with me. Hahaha, gaysted again!

So then around 3:30 or so I finally figured out where I'd be sleeping for the night - Tag's couch. His apt is showroom status - complete with plastic fruit, haha. I wanted to mess it all up so bad.

After sleeping for a few hours, I woke up, found a cab and went to Henson's place. He has a super dope condo in an old cracker jack toy factory. We grabbed some quick breakfast at a diner, hung out for a bit, then headed to the Auto Show. It was amazing. I'm excited to go back again. We even got to see Brad for a minute.

Later we met up with some of Henson/Anna's friends for some mexican food at Las Pinatas, where we discussed how awesome falcons are, etc. Afterwards we warmed up with a beer at the Fireplace Inn, which led into more routine Chicago debauchery.

Henson and I met up with Harper and friends at Debonair, which got a little out of control. Tag choked me and ripped my diamond earrings out, which I wouldn't find out til way later, sad. So I tackled him good... and James' eyes got big. We then went to Ohm for a second and ended the night at Redno5. It was nice to see John and walk past the $20 cover again.

I then crashed at Henson's place, woke up early, went back to Nandy's and we drove home just in time for my Broomball games. I literally got dropped off, walked in the front door, grabbed my broomball gear, got back in the car, and drove to broomball. Then we had a double header - all on 10 hours of sleep in 3 days. I wanted to die.

I still sort of do.
