UP is this very cool little lounge-type spot with a full menu of Chicago-style food (read: fatty but soooo good — Lou Malnati’s Deep Dish Pizza, Vienna Beef and Eli’s Cheesecake). I had a veggie burger (delish) and a gluten-free Ginger Apple Cider, by Angry Orchard, which I got as an experiment but ended up becoming my new fav summer drink.
Pete Holmes immediately made some nerdy joke about the Voss water being a vial of elixer or something, but had me laughing out loud when he described himself as a pastor-type. He’s right, he really does look like a pastor. And when Brent Weinbach asked the guys in the audience how they felt about having boners next to each other at the strip club, I almost died. Also memorable was Hari Kondabolu’s description of children as hetero couple’s evidence that they fuck. “Look at our little fuck.” Hilarious.
