Ladies Beach Weekend – October 5 -7, 2018

Ladies Beach Weekend – October 5 -7, 2018

This year the beach weekend started off again with brunch at Leroy’s Hot Stuff Restaurant and Bar on Route 20. We all gathered around Jack Daniels statue to enjoy plentiful and filling Mexican/American fare and Hot Stuff Bloody Marys. After sating ourselves on carbs and alcohol we caravanned on to Michigan City to Liz Marren’s

Patti Poirier Get-Together – July 06, 2018

Patti Poirier Get-Together – July 06, 2018

Patti very spur-of-the-moment, very generously, very open-armed, invited those who usually attend the main get-togethers for a little impromptu summer soiree. As it turned out we had to dub it Jerry and the Harem since it turned out to be six scintillating women and Jerry Novick. As it was just a week before Patti’s birthday

Lunch – January 17, 2018

The Southside Irregulars met for an impromptu lunch at the Home Run Inn at 109th and Western. Really great pizza, cold beer/sodas and only $12 bucks apiece! Couldn’t ask for more. A short slideshow is embedded below. Remember to click the 4-arrow icon in the lower right corner to see the pictures full-size.

Holiday Lunch – December 10, 2017

December 10th was a bright cold day – and perfect for the Ethelreda 2017 Holiday Lunch. Traverso’s was an inspired pick, and early in the day (12:30 pm) worked out to perfection as we had the whole restaurant to ourselves almost until we were ready to leave.  It is getting harder and harder to find

November 13, 2016 – Holiday Brunch

November 13, 2016 – Holiday Brunch

This was a smaller party than usually. We had fun, but overshadowing the lightheartedness of a Christmas party including Thanksgiving were the serious events that Sue went thru which were our major concern and topic. By the 13th, Sue was much better, but I wasn’t supposed to tell anyone that the Docs had told the

2016 Girl’s Beach Weekend – Sept 9-11

Rocky start for the Hurley car. This morning’s down-to-the-minute schedule wrecked as soon as the car backed out under the garage door. Hyped dog in the back seat, luggage and wine in the trunk – and the TIRE PRESSURE light on! Damn. Why today?? The schedule was supposed to be: 1. Dog to the vet

Architectural River Cruise – June 26, 2016

OH no! Clouds – Rain – THUNDER!! That was the wake-up call at 7:00 AM on Sunday, June 26th. Fret – “What do they do if it’s raining?” “Do they cancel the boat??” “Will we get struck by lightning???” “Do we get a refund????”. Then, s-l-o-w-l-y the clouds moved off to Indiana and the humidity
