    crap I swear we got rid of tons but coming back inside Sunday evening after it was all done the reality hit us we can still get rid of more Once you get into it the purge mentality is intoxicating There s this show on TV called Clean Sweep where the premise is that instead of going through your possessions and removing the stuff you think you don t need instead you move EVERYTHING outside onto your lawn and only bring back inside the stuff you really can t live without We didn t have the time or patience for such an exercise but I tried to apply the same mentality to our purge With every item I found I d ask myself Would my life be worsened without this in it If the answer was No into the garage it went I like to think this method was foolproof but it wasn t I would sometimes loosen my definition of worsened to take on a meaning more like less fun or less nifty Now I look around and while I see fewer books and more room in our dresser I still see a decrepit box of Perquackey still never played Necessary No Nifty Hell yeah We made about 270 on our sale plus about 50 in tax deductions from the leftover items that got sent to Howard Brown Once those things left the house there was no way any of them were coming back in People seem to think this is a pretty good take for a weekend but then that recessive entrepreneurial gene I get from my dad kicks in and wonders how much more we could have made if we priced everything just a bit higher For example we sold all our clothes for 1 2 per

    we re talking about an icing to cake ratio of something like 4 000 1 Incredibly happily my sweet tooth still tingles Our tradition is to celebrate every month of the relationship a monthaversary with a night out to eat Often these restaurants are nice sometimes they re just unique or well respected It s given us a chance to discover some pretty amazing restaurants in Chicago that we wouldn t have tried otherwise La Tache Andersonville s fancy french bistro The late Savoy Truffle the hidden gem of Humboldt Park Green Zebra with the ravioli that sang the song of angels Last night to celebrate year three we tried out a place I d heard mentioned in the same breath as some of the city s most respected joints Avec By now I think we re both kind of tired of the same old French inspired song and dance that you find everywhere Highest on our priority list these days is uniqueness Walking into the place my expectations seemed to be met Clearly a very modernist interior design menu design even waitstaff design It was then I started to become worried we d walked into a hipster trap worried because such places value style over substance and also because we d be kicked out on our unhip asses as soon as they got a close look at us That was all moot once we started to eat Oh man It was as great as we expected We went with the multitude of small plates instead of two main entrees I felt the dishes got better as we went along but that could have just been the wine talking Asparagus salad Prosciutto with seasonal fruit Whipped brandade the leftovers of which I m eating right now Mussels and sturgen kabob
