I tried the same restaurant not once but twice this weekend. On Friday, I met with a former co-worker at Homeslice Wheel House on Webster Avenue. I got the recommendation from Taylor of the Daily Tay on Instagram. Thanks, Tay!
We only had time for a drink and some appetizers; we chose the goat cheese and bread sticks, which come with marinara sauce, and the hummus with veggies and pita. In an effort to have more grown-up drinks, I ordered the bourbon sangria. Just one drink was enough for little old me.
Later, I got the surprise of the year when one of my favorite humans showed up at my apartment in the middle of the night. Graham and Charlsy had been in cahoots to surprise me. On Sunday, after working up an appetite during our whirlwind weekend of exploration, we decided to go to Homeslice. It was the best decision of the day.
I ordered the Miller White pizza (sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, feta, mozzarella, provolone, garlic and olive oil) and she got the pepperoni. We each had a mimosa and admired the patio. If this is Chicago in the summer, I never want the season to end. But the best part of dinner followed. We tried the awesomeness that is the cookie dough bites. For $2, you get a ball of egg-less cookie dough covered in sprinkles. Two of them were enough to convince Charlsy she needed to move to Chicago. Our server informed us we could get a jar to go, which we later regretted not doing. Do yourself a favor and get the dough to go.
This is just one slice of the epic weekend we had. More to come this week as I recover from the fun.
