During one of our last trips we made the revelation that we spend a lot of money to traveling far away just to spend our time walking around and eating.
So now we just try to do this around our neighborhood, and we're able to include our pups.
Since we've moved we're still learning about our area, and it's only now that I realize how centrally located our home is. We are pretty much right on the border of 3 great neighborhoods.
We now live really close to one of Miss' M's favorite boyfriends, Vegas, and we were excited to join Vegas and his person to explore the Logan Square neighborhood on a typical Sunday afternoon.
Walking the Square and an Outdoor Bruncha huge boulevard system running straight through the streets. We love that it has that real-neighborhood vibe with so many locally owned shops and galleries. Many of them are even dog-friendly. They have plenty of outdoor dog-friendly dining, and we stopped at Reno's for some brunch (savory bread pudding!). The pups spent the time lounging on the ground next to a huge water bowl. They got lots of pets, and Miss M even met one of her fans (thanks for saying hi!).
Logan Square Farmer's Market
Miko's Italian Ice
You can get two flavors in a cup. My favorite has also been half coconut, half chocolate so Miss M is just looking on without being able to eat any.
While Miss M was out on her date, any guesses what E and Mr. B were doing on a Sunday afternoon?
