Our wonderful - and true FOODIE friends - Carol and Mark, visited us in Chicago this past weekend. We knew we had to bring them to pleasing palette restaurants, so the pressure was on to find them a monstrously appealing culinary experience! Our first stop: Yes Thai located on 5211 N. Damen Avenue. We shared all the appetizers and entrees and they were delighted by this cuisine. We even saw some North Park alumni there! (Conversing with these special people over shared food was the best treat of all! ) Next gorge: Sweet Occasions on 4639 N. Damen Aveune. Mark amazed us with his double-dip ice cream eating prowess (and that "Snap 'o Lantern" flavor is to die for.) Carol had the coconut cake and Wes and I shared the raspberry truffle...or at least attempted to do so as ONE of us hogged most of it! Now for the truly monstrous part of the whole evening: FITTING INTO OUR OWN WAISTBANDS - Trick or Treat!
