    Steve was pretty excited and rightly so.
    We took a quick hop so he could check out his quick ride and then back to his place to hide it before his wife got home.
    Then I dashed home before work missed me. I was successful in pulling off my 3 hour "long lunch" without detection.
    Have I mentioned lately that I love my job?

    Quick Sunday ride!

    We're meeting at the Full Moon on 41 and riding up to Racine/Kenosha to watch the Salmon run in the rivers.

    Quite a sight!

    Two of us so far - anyone else interested?

    Rosebud and Morton's are good high end steakhouses with a lively crowd. Check out www.metromix.com.

    Home away from home

    Hyatt Regency, McCormick Place...don't have a clue where this is. Sunday night may be our only free time as we are working Monday and leaving 6pm Monday.

    The good news is that you're in a wonderful new Hotel, the bad news is that it's a short cab ride from anyplace I'd actually recommend.

    Now that we've established the cab ride - what kind of food do you like?

    My esteemed associates are correct - the Rush Street area is hopping, even on a Sunday night and if steak is what you want, Gibsons (in the Rush Street area) rocks as does Sullivans.

    Texas is hard to beat for Steak and Tex-Mex, however, you might want to try something different?

    Rosebud (Rush Street) is good Italian - but it's big restaurant Italian as opposed to the real thing.

    Talk to us - what are you looking for?

    Need Chicago Specific Food

    I'm a foodie in addition to the BMW addiction. Good cheap food is appreciated as well as good expensive food. I would think that Chicago would have some killer ethnic restaurants...no chains. When I need a steak I just reach out my window and slice a piece off the nearest steer, so unless it's world renowned steak I would pass. Really great Italian/Polish/German/Russian/Bosco/etc. is a shoe in. My traveling companion is just a lad but relatively adventurous. Also, I need to know a great Dog stand. I've been to the famous deep dish pizza place, a famous but poorly executed rib place on the south side, a great diner downtown that does a mean Reuben and a great dog stand close to a college. Don't remember any of the names but don't want to go back to any of them (except the dog stand)so I guess that doesn't matter.

    Try the "flaming saganaki". It is the stuff!
    Anyone up for a ride Saturday?
    I am desperate.

    Secret Italian place edge of downtown

    http://www.lascarola.com/

    This place is totally Italian... but a modern Italian menu, not the heavy stuff. Zagat rated and always brilliant.

    I take clients here when they want a real Chicago dining experience. 50/50 chance some of our "Outfit" guys will be dining there at the same time, so you know it's good.

    (You don't want to give Joey ' The Clown' Lombardo or the Grand Avenue Crew a bad dish. Joey is actually in prison now, but the Crew is alive and well)

    Their Pasta Fagiole is best best in Chicago... and perhaps North America.

    And a short cab ride from Rush Street where your understudy can gaze on our version of nightlife.

    Usual disclaimers.

    Oh, Hot Dogs.
