The Manor

Friday night (again), we decided to hop over to a local pub, The Manor on Wilton Drive. I had no sooner parked, than we saw a place with flashing lights off to our right. We went over to have a look and it was a Latino AIDS benefit of some sort. We bought our tickets and went inside. There were very few people there, mostly males. The only thing they had to drink was Stolichnaya with assorted mixers. We each had one with tonic, and wandered around for awhile. Then we went outside and struck up a conversation with the DJ, Jared Michaels. He was really a super nice guy and we had quite a chat. He also showed us how his DJ mixer worked. Very interesting. We finished our drinks and made our way over to the Manor. The crowd was just starting to arrive and by the time we left (around 02h30) the place was humming.

Dumb Law of the Week: In Chicago, it is illegal to take a French poodle to the opera!

À la prochaine, mes amis.

Interesting article about bilingualism. I definitely feel that I don't have the same emotional connection with certain words in French as in English.
