A lot of cool stuff went down in Chicago this weekend. It goes without saying that it’s a wonderful place and is exceptionally beautiful. Reckner and I really lucked out in two ways this weekend.
First, the weather was ridiculous. Coming from the humid armpit of August in the south, we were welcomed with warm afternoons and cool evenings. It was perfect.
Second, TI performed at the bar of our hotel on Friday night. Let me clarify a few things:
(1) He has a new album coming out so he played a few songs from his MacBook Pro and then “kind of rapped” for a little while. (2) Reckner weaseled her way into the party by acting like she didn’t have any clue who TI was. Apparently, for the folks putting on the event, white girls who “don’t know” any of the featured rapper’s music — but seem interested in partying — are allowed into events. Oh and I guess the husband can come in, too. (3) When rappers perform at small hotels every single prostitute from the Chicago metro area finds her way in or around the party. (4) Reckner was pursued by one of TI’s guys. What can I say? My wife is dope, yo.
By the way — the photo above is, in fact, how close we were to TI during the event.
