A day late since I was driving back to Chicago yesterday, but I wanted to give a Father's Day shoutout to @grinnellsteve1321, whose Instagram account seemingly exists only to like his son's posts.
For Juneteenth, @bandcamp is donating their share of profits to the @naacp_ldf. Here are a few great country/Americana/soul albums from Black artists you can buy today to support a great cause. It's a win-win!
There's a lot going on right now, which is maybe why the government thought they could just quietly amend HHS policy to give medical providers the ability to refuse care to a trans patient--in the middle of a global pandemic, no less. That's fucked up. Credit to @xxroadmaster420 for the sick bumper sticker.
A couple of our favorite venues in town, @emptybottle and @tonicroomchi, are hosting supply drives right now. If you've got the ability, this is a great way to help protesters and communities in need!
If you're looking for some tangible ways to help fight systemic racism, this list from @chicagobucketlist is a good place to start.
1,000 people were arrested in Chicago yesterday while demanding justice for George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. As we've seen in prisons across the country, COVID-19 spreads easily within the confined spaces of a jail, and a donation to @chibondfund helps keep these folks safe.
Well folks, I will no longer be able to truthfully sing the line, I've never seen Sleepless In Seattle. And I'll admit, it's pretty cute as far as rom-coms go.
Feeling thankful for a lot of things right now, but certainly one of those things is the giant bottle of Angostura bitters I bought the other day. ------- Angostura Colada 1 oz lime juice 2 oz pineapple juice 1.5 oz coconut cream 1.5 oz angostura bitters .5 oz aged rum - this is El Dorado 12 Shake with crushed ice, dump contents into glass, top with crushed ice, and garnish tropically!
