2012: Zoo Lights
Good friends Meghan and Ryan who I met in LA but are both Midwest raised came to Chicago to bum around and celebrate New Year’s Eve with me in the city. Which was AWESOME. They got in a night early and before heading to see Book of Mormon, I made us some spiced hot chocolates and we headed to check out the Lincoln Park Zoo Lights. People, let me tell you, this night was awesome. First of all, I learned that the Lincoln Park Zoo has giraffes. Didn’t know that until we went here. Secondly, the lights are unlike anything I’ve ever seen. We had a blast exploring the sites and I look forward to making a visit to the Zoo every year part of many Christmas seasons to come.
And for the record, this morning I ran through the Zoo. Just a side note that running through a free Zoo whenever I want is pretty damn awesome, and I saw a Sichuan Takin, which I didn’t even know was an animal until today. So yea, Chicago, you keep on winning at life.
