A few weeks ago One Tail at a Time was the featured charity at Filoni’s annual spring gathering. Filoni is an artisan inspired clothing and accessories boutique in downtown Oak Park and Chick and I were lucky enough to be the featured guests at their event. Ten percent of all sales from the evening were donated to OTAT and it was so much fun to chat with the lovely ladies in attendance, all who had rescue dogs of their own. It was not so lovely, however, when Chick grumbled at one of those attendees. She sure is a snot sometimes.
(PS you must go to Maya del Sol, also in Oak Park:)

A while back Josh and I met my dad for dinner at Maya del Sol, a Latin American restaurant in Oak Park. When I was growing up, my great aunt lived in Oak Park and we used to often visit her. We’d have lunch at a little pancake diner on the corner of Lake Street or we’d have dinner at Leona’s. I used to think Oak Park was so old school and glamorous, especially in her vintage apartment. Oak Park still has its charm and after doing some research, this restaurant is the place to be. Josh and I were on board, but my dad wasn’t convinced. That changed though as soon as the nachos arrived, and the enchiladas. I stuck with my usual rice and beans, but it didn’t disappoint. There wasn’t even a crumb left for Chick.
