Where Did Wendy And Seafarer Eat?
Sheila Scarborough, a "Where's Wendy?" contest winner, joined me for dinner in Chicago on Saturday night.

Remember how there were 5 "Where's Wendy?" contest winners and the prize was a meal with me at the restaurant of the victor's choice? Well, on Saturday night it was winner #2's turn: Sheila Scarborough -- better known to Perrin Post readers as Seafarer -- and I had dinner in Chicago.
CAN YOU GUESS WHERE WE ATE? Hint: I'm afraid we disappointed all you Chicago foodies who thoughtfully furnished restaurant suggestions. We decided we needed sleep more than culinary adventure.
The trick to winning a Where's Wendy? or Where's Brook? contest, I'm learning, is to be both an impassioned traveler and an impassioned Googler. Sheila, a former Commander in the U.S. Navy -- that's the equivalent of a Lieutenant Colonel -- fits the bill.
She's lived everywhere from Bahrain to Pearl Harbor to Japan to the Netherlands. Now she lives in Round Rock, Texas, and writes or co-writes several travel blogs, among them the BootsnAll Travel Network's blog on Family Travel (that's where Sheila posts her "more international and quirky" advice); Kid Trippin' (where she provides "more bread-and-butter, entry-level, domestic-road-trip" tips); the Perceptive Travel Blog (which "focuses on the cultural aspects of travel"); and FastMachines (about drag racing and NASCAR events).
