Well, we made it to another weekend. After being teased with two days of perfect spring weather, we've been catapulted back into why-am-I-still-wearing-my-winter-coat mode. Beyond the irritating teeth chattering weather, I am pretty stoked for the weekend! Here are some neat things to catapult us into my two favorite days of the week!
The Great Gatsby // Baz Luhrmann
The Great Gatsby hits theaters a week from today. I have been waiting for this since basically the first time I saw Romeo + Juliet at the tender age of 9 and decided that LDC and Baz Luhrmann are a match made in heaven. This film looks gorgeous, decadent, dark, and tactile - and with good reason, they have been pushing the release date back for over a year! Next Friday can't come quickly enough, amirite? NPR leaked the soundtrack for the film, and it is seriously amazing. Give it a whirl!
Modern Vampires of the City // Vampire Weekend
Roasted Garlic Guacamole // Simply Scratch
Unf, how good does that look? With Cinco de Mayo upon us, all I want to do is eat carnitas, refried beans, chips, and guacamole. This roasted garlic guac recipe from Simply Scratch looks and sounds divine.
Chicago Farmers Markets, Welcome Back!
Chicago Farmers markets are back in action beginning this weekend! Find one that works with your schedule here! And don't forget to shop for things as they are in season! I'm pretty stoked for asparagus, peas, and rhubarb!
