1. I went to an awesome fall menu preview at Jellyfish Chicago this week that was quite interesting. The decor at this place was incredible. I felt not nearly cool enough being there, but I faked my way through. While noshing on sushi, we tried their new line of specialty cocktails. If you're in the Gold Coast, try the One Night Stand. It's Don Julio Blanco, Cointreau, lime juice, simple syrup and cranberry. Not too sweet but definitely delicious.
2. Fun fact: I've been stung by a Portuguese Man o' War Jellyfish and survived to tell the tale. It made consuming this jellyfish at Jellyfish even more satisfying.
3. I've been kind of obsessed with Tasty videos lately. I realize they just make cooking look easy by animating food porn, but it's mesmerizing nonetheless. I recently made the acorn-stuffed squash, subbing wild rice instead of breadcrumbs and Parmesan, and it was amazing. Buzzfeed for the win, again!
