TYOLD May 22, 2014: Upgrading

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Back to doing some different, just because I’m off to Chicago and felt like it would be easy to stick in my rut of what I usually do when I go to Chicago – drink and carouse a lot.

So started the trip with something I have always wanted to do but never have – fly first class.  Virgin has last minute seat upgrades often available.  It involved getting up a 4:30 in the morning to get it, but in the end, once you factor in the waived fees for checking luggage, food, drinks, and movies, it cost me about an extra $100.

I may never be able to fly coach again.

Once I got here, an epic drive to get from the airport into the city and then straight to the drive through at Portillo’s.  Some things just can’t be different.  Italian beef with mozzarella no peppers and a side of onion rings.  I dream about this stuff.  And I was not disappointed.
