Every now and then, I need to visit my oldest BFF - Chicago. Born and bred there, Chicago has a special place in my heart. When I was away at school in Connecticut, I thought about Chicago often, and missed her terribly. I always wanted to show her off to my friends from other places. I always felt I was lucky to know Chicago!
Me, on the Chicago street named for my grandfather
[Side Note] How Krom was coined: While I was away at school, my friends shortened my surname to arrive at my nickname.
Well, this weekend was extra special because not only was I visiting my BFF, but Kanye was as well. I attended his Saturday night concert in Chi-town with Kirstoner, a college BFF. Rihanna, NERD, and Lupe Fiasco joined Kanye in making this concert the experience of a lifetime. But it gets better, Jennifer Hudson, one of the guys from VH1's I love New York plus 2 were sitting right next to us. J-Hud, tugging at her baseball cap, was hoping to go unnoticed; however, she was unsuccessful, as her beauty gave her away.
Here are some photos from the concert:
This is Kanye's ode to Chi-town, and a favorite song of mine:
Further, the weekend was topped off with "Fireworks at Lake Michigan".
How can you not love Chicago?
I hope you had a great Memorial weekend too! There is much more to come from Chi-city!
