Recipe for a lovely evening

2 Jimmy Johns sandwiches (the #10 and the #11 on wheat with no mayo)

2 giant tubs of Diet Coke with very little ice

1 package of Double Stuf Oreos

2 of those portable, collapsible canvas chairs on sale for $9.99 each at Walgreens

1 domestic partner

1 domestic partner-in-law

1 gay couple

1 straight couple

3 blankets

1 beautiful night

1 kick-ass—and totally FREE–concert program in Millennium Park: Arvo Pärt's ethereal "Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten" and Jean Sibelius' heroic-provincial First Symphony

2 hours of hand-holding, happy faces, goosebumps and yummy sounds (and the occasional discreet burp) under the stars to a soundtrack of epic tonal dissonance
