So yes. I am on PART 4 of the Creative Connection update! And I am just giving you the highlights ya'all!
So we are done with the wonderful and inspiring The Creative Connection Event, ergo, must eat. Where does one go - especially when one is an anglophile? BRITS PUB BABY.
Oh my goodness. I love this place. Want to put it in my pocket and take it home with me. So want to decorate my house this way too - yes complete with flags. *squee*
Lets start the tour shall we? Brits Pub - part the first. Yes.I.took.that.many.pictures.
Oh and not far away was Chicago's Stanley Cup in building format.....
On weekends Brits is packed and of course my schedule wouldn't allow a dinner there - however- luckily for me - they were open for breakfast right before I left. Phew. I thought - no one will be there.... or so I thought! Sorry for the blurryness but I was sneaking in pictures of OBSESSED Man U fans. I have never seen a) so many Americans up at the crack of dawn to see a Footy game and b) so many Man U jerseys and scarfs in one place in my life on American Soil. You would think I was in the grandstands at a Man U game due to the noise level at 7:30 AM. Yes that is AM folks.( The funniest was when the footie game ended, the Vikings invaded the bar. (*HAR HAR* Get the little English History vs. Minn. American Football joke? Okay. I shall stop...)
Anyways, there were so many people in this part of the bar watching the Man U footy game on a 20 foot high screen, that it was hard to take a picture. Also they gave me dirty looks every time I whipped out my D40. If you ever saw Green Street Hooligans...you would have been happy with this blurry picture too.
Well not so traditional. Usually an English Breakfast has fried eggs and real toast -served cold. But I was lucky to have baked beans, a banger(sausage) and back bacon. NUM NUM NUM. I decided to do my own taste test - back bacon vs. strikey (our American Bacon) to see what was better. I recalled that when I was in England - I always thought the Back Bacon was just way to salty... (American Bacon on the left, British Back Bacon on the Right)
... folks, I could have just sat there and eaten both bacons all day long... they were SOOOOOO good. oh my goodness. I am drooling now just thinking of it. Which one to you looks better?
Part the Second Tomorrow.... because I got to go felt ya'all!
