I took this picture when I was in Chicago a couple in June. Sorry I didn’t get it posted sooner!
I am back from Chi-Town and heading back there on the 4th of March. I am so glad I got the training because it’s going to come in handy in the coming months. This year will be extremely busy with the new software upgrade as well as the new hardware. I hope things will settle down a little in 2008. It’s only February and I know the rest of 2007 is going to be zooey.
Things I ate in Chicago:
- Chicago Style Hot Dogs (Various Place)
- Giordanos Stuffed Pizza (http://www.giordanos.com/)
- Eppy’s Deli
The Chicago Style Hot Dog is enough to make me want to buy hot dogs again. One of the tastiest concoctions I have ever experienced. Definitely THE way to eat a dog now.
Giordano’s has the best Stuffed Pizza which I would really call Chicago Style Deep Dish. The fillings go in first then the cheese and then the sauce. Delicious!
Eppy is a eccentric man who runs Eppy’s Deli and he makes sandwiches that are out of this world. You have a choice of about 18 different mustards and all sorts of cheeses and breads. Take my advice, if you go to Eppy’s, check the menu out near the door before going to the counter. Make your decision there and walk right up and order. Don’t dwadle when ordering and if he asks what chips you want, Ghetto Chips mean Barbeque. As for what do you order, I reccomend Pastrami and Swiss on Swirled Rye, toasted to melt the cheese and brown spicy mustard. As for sides, get chips and pick one…they are all good. If it’s still cold, you can also get a cup of soup with the meal at the price of the temperature. If it’s only 1 degree outside, it’s 1 cent. If it’s -3, he gives you 3 cents off! 😀 Anyway, you can’t go wrong with Eppy’s. They even have breakfast sandwiches and bagels. Check em out and hang out and chat with Eppy. Once you get to know him, he’s not all that bad!
It’s been one of those exhausting weeks that just takes all of the energy out of ya. Hopefully my trip to Chicago will be a safe and good one.
Things I am looking forward to in Chicago:
- Chicago Style Hot Dogs
- Chicago Deep Dish Pizza
- The Sear’s Tower
Things I am not looking forward to:
- Typical Chicago Weather
- TSA Security
- Airliner crammed full of crabby people.
Anyway, hopefully I have a non-eventful week.
