Tuesdays on the Terrace

Have I mentioned that summers in Chicago are the best?  ’Cause they are!

Last week, I went to the Museum of Contemporary Art for Tuesdays on the Terrace, a free event with admission to the exhibits and the back garden, where a jazz band entertained and people enjoyed fresh grilled food and drinks.  I lounged on a blanket with my friends Chika and Linda, enjoying the outside ambiance.

The museum is right by Lake Michigan and Chika walked me to the lakefront trail at the end of the evening.  Coco is a bit too big for her, but I think they make a lovely pair.

I enjoyed my bike ride home in the evening, totally content.  Bicycling with the fresh air and sunset and skyline is the best way to end a Tuesday.  Certainly better than a usual mid-week bike commute.

I plan to go to as many Tuesdays on the Terrace events as possible this summer.  After all, the event is free!  ;)  No reason not to take advantage of all the culture Chicago offers.

    Life can be wonderful, can’t it?  Your entire evening looks serene and perfect!  Hope you get to replicate it again tonight!

    I LOVE that last image!  It would look beautiful blown up and hanging on a wall :)

    How do you like the sprung Brooks saddle?  I think I may finally break down and get one for my cargo bicycle.  I could use it since getting out of the saddle on a loaded down long-tail cargo bike is not a good idea.  I need a bit more comfort when hauling over 100-lbs of stuff.

      I luuuuurve my Brooks sprung saddle! Seriously, after two weeks of breaking in, it’s the most comfortable ever.
