My first week in Chicago I tried Lou Malnati’s. Amaze-balls. Last week, I had a friend in town from San Francisco. She wanted to try Giordano’s. Tourist trap — I know, I know!

After listening to samples of all the songs on Cruz’s “One of These Days” album, which includes “Hi’ilawe”, I am in love, love, love.
