What you did for your last birthday

My birthday is a big deal to me, and I'm lucky to have people who want to celebrate it with me. This year, I noticed a pattern within the whoopdedoo: a cheeseburger topped with a fried egg. I had it at two separate celebrations at two different restaurants.

Over the past 15 years or so, Chicago has become a foodie destination, a place to come for haute cuisine. It tells you a lot about me that I'm happier in a dive bar with a cheeseburger topped with a friend egg.
