I got that job I mentioned earlier and I had to come to Racine, WI for a week of meetings. Before going North, I spent a few days in Chicago visiting an old friend, Julie and her sweetie and seeing my parents' old haunts. These are a couple of little tastes from the visit.
The Vogue fabric store is in Evanston, North of Chicago, and is the town where my parents lived for several years. This store is amazing! Here is what I bought when I was there.
The Shermain Grill in Evanston--across the street from Vogue and what a treat. An old school diner with LOW prices. And, true to form, they know how to make a BLT, no messing around.
Oh, yea, that's a Chicago dog (no onions, no pepper) at Huey's hot dog shack. That full size pickle seems like it would be awkward but it is a burst of freshness on that grilled wieney!
