In case you’re wondering, Adrian will be relocated to the Flint Creek Wildlife Rehab Center out in the suburbs later this week.
In other news, I had one of the great dinners I will have this year tonight. It was at Copperblue, one of Chicago’s truly great restaurants. I was there with four lovely people, one of whom treated the group to a large portion of the evening’s expenses. I’ve already thanked everyone concerned personally, so I won’t lather on any more thanks here, but I can’t recommend the place highly enough if you’re looking for a restaurant that has it all – uniquely wonderful food, wine list, service, atmosphere. It’s at a premium price, to be sure, and it’s not someplace I’ll be dining at every week, but for a special occasion (heck, for no occasion at all) you really couldn’t do better! I had The Best Snails I’ve Ever Had tonight as my appetizer, followed by The Best Snapper I’ve Ever Had as my entrée. I won’t go into much detail about method of preparation – your taste buds will not ask you for that information; they will only thank you for treating them right.
