Thumping Thursdays Blog Hop!

Well since Thursdays are barreling down on the weekend, we thought we'd get ready for what additional fun you may be having... join the blog hop!
I'd be interested to know what fun plans you have for the weekend.
I hope you'll leave me a message and who knows... maybe I'll have another restaurant to write about!


1. Follow your host and co-hosts via GFC. It's just polite etiquette. We try to follow everyone who links up but please help us by commenting when you follow. Thanks!
2. Place the badge somewhere on your blog. Side bar, separate tab (like I have), or if you would like to add the linky below to your own post! It gets the word around about the linky, therefore more people link up, getting you more followers! :)
3. This is a blog hop, you have to be involved for it to work. Hop around, make some friends, comment letting them know you are a new follower from the hop, and they'll return the favor. :)
4. One more rule: Have Fun! ;)

Thanks again. Please leave feedback on what we can do to improve this blog hop to make it more fun and beneficial for everyone.

Restaurant 2

If you like Cuban food, never had it but want to try it, try Havana on Clark Street in Chicago. I had never had Cuban food before, but if this is what it is, I am sold! I had the Chimichangas for an appetizer,.... WOW, were they delicious! For my entree, I ordered the salmon which included grilled salmon topped with a tamarind sauce served over jalapeno mashed potaotes. Sounds good? It is!

A live band starts up at around 11:00 and because my date and I were having such a wonderful time and the server was wonderful, we stayed longer, listened to the band and had dessert. The key lime pie was delectable. I would visit this resaurtant over and over again. If you're not particular about fish, they have a nice selection of chicken and other meats. I already have my menu selection selected for my next visit!

Restaurant hopping for my birthday...

Recently I celebrated a birthday and took a long weekend doing so. What fun! I thought I'd give a shout out to the wonderful restaurants that I visited. If you are in Chicago, and you have the opportunity, make it a point of dropping by, if it's your cup of tea so to speak.

My birthday was on a Sunday, but I began on a Thursday. The hubby and I had a wonderful meal at L26 on 26th & State. The food was absolutely, melt in your mouth while your toes are wiggling and you're humming, delicious. I ordered the lamb with garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach. I don't eat meat often, at all. Usually I eat it no more than 2-3 a year because it makes me feel so heavy, as if I'd eaten an entire turkey. I felt nothing like that. The lamb was so light and juicy and perfectly seasoned; I may eat lamb twice as much, now. The hubby substituted the lamb for salmon which was by far the best I've tasted.

I just couldn't resist telling everyone I can about this restaurant, it is not often that I find really good ones; with excellent service, too! And, to boot, 3 of the 4 restaurants I visited my birthday weekend were excellent. I'll let you in on the other two later...
