Today was my daughters birthday! Her girlfriend suggested we go out for dinner when they got off work so I met them downtown (Chicago).

I took the train (which I love) travel through some of the most interesting neighborhoods. When I got to Union station I jumped in a cab for a quick ride to their workplace. At first I thought about walking there but then I decided it was a wee bit too cold!!!! When we pulled to the side of the street the ladies hopped in the taxi and we were off to the restaraunt (Wildfire). The atmophere was lovely, the servers were friendly and attentive. I must also mention the decor was nice with an open kitchen concept, it was also very clean!

This was my first time there so our friend (L) made some suggestions! We tried the house salad which was dee-lish! They served two types of bread with this too! For the entree I ordered the same as (L) barbecued chicken, it was so good (moist and delicious). After our meals the server brought over a small chocolate molten-like cake with a candle on it and we sang HAPPY BIRTHDAY! We all shared a bite of ordered a desert to share. The desert had three types of sweeties on it with berries!!!! Yummy, it was good.

During our dinner we had some wonderful conversations. We chatted about family, cruises, Chicago's north and south side!!! I really had a great time and I hope we don't have to wait until another birthday to do it again!!!!!! CHEERS! Michele
