Eric and I flew to Chicago on Thanksgiving Day to stay with my brother and see my parents who were in from Cleveland. We had a wonderful visit at David and Heidi’s beautiful home in Lake Zurich and spent the majority of the weekend chasing after our adorably handsome nephew. There were no turkey mishaps, although after a few rounds of dominoes and and Great Lakes Christmas Ale, my dad did suggest something along the lines of “turkey twerking.” Thank goodness we didn’t follow through with that.
And what better place to spend Black Friday than Brunswick Zone? In a typically Mihalik-esque move, my brother was the proud owner of an expired bowling Groupon. So, we decided to head over and see what kind of deal we could strike (pun intended) with the bowling alley employees. The 6 of us ended up with a lane for 2 hours and had a blast. Heidi fittingly bowled three strikes in a row…a Turkey.
