Week #42 – Chicago Theatre

Well, who doesn’t love to check an item off of her to do list? That’s how I’m starting my week after a recent trip to Chicago Theatre to see one of Nate’s favorite comedians: Bill Burr.

We (Nate and I, plus my brother- and sister-in-law and our friends Scott and Katherine) started off the evening at one of our neighborhood favorites, Butterfly Sushi, and then headed straight to the 7:30 p.m. show.

There’s something I love so much about this theater. The iconic sign (which is almost six stories high) and all the lights outside just give it that special touch of excitement. We walked in and the place was packed, but it didn’t take away from the beauty of the lobby. (Did you know the theater is almost 92 years old?!?)

Nate and I had separate seats from the rest of the group because we decided to go last minute, so we navigated through the theater and found our seats right away. The seats were great–on the floor and easy to see. An even funnier surprise was that my friend Amy from grade school sat right next to us (Nate bought the tickets from her friend!). If we weren’t laughing at Bill Burr, the guy in front of us who had a comment after every joke provided constant entertainment as well.

Our time at the theater was brief, but lovely. The show was good, and it’s even better to know that we will be back in December to see JERRY SEINFELD!
