I happened to be out to dinner at Uncommon Ground during Earth Hour and was glad to see the restaurant chose to participate. Though I wasn’t really surprised. UC is a pretty progressive restaurant. They focus on local ingredients, have a green garden on their rooftop, and are in the process of stocking their bar with only non-imported liquors, beer and wine. Last but not least, the food is really great. Comfort food with a tasty twist.
On the way home, I took a spin over to Northwestern’s campus for a good view of a darkened downtown Chicago. Here are some cool pix of Earth Hour around the globe.
