Okay, Okay, Okay…I have a secret, as much as I love fashion, I love food!

Okay, Okay, Okay…I have a secret, as much as I love fashion, I love food!

If you read my blog regularly than you already know that, so I was super excited when I was invited to Ethyl’s Beer and Wine Dive.

Believe me when I say I came ready to eat!!

As I patiently waited to sample treats from the menu, I chatted it up with other members of the press.

Then it was time to eat…

Southern Mac and Cheese

Wisconsin Beer Battered Cheese Curds

Croque Madame

My absolute favorite Chicageux Gumbo!!

UIC Flame Burger

These devil eggs were delicious!!

And drink….

The food and drinks hit the spot, I could’ve sat outside talking and drinking for hours.

And if that’s not enough you can order food from one of the 13 food trucks on hand in the parking lot while sipping on  your cocktails from Ethyl’s!

Here I am with one of the owners.
