A buddy of mine was recently on Check, Please! He knows every neighborhood diner in town. Nobody in Chicago comes close to Dave’s gastronomical knowledge and insight and he also always knows where to find the best drink specials too.
He picked out a greasy spoon, Moon’s Sandwich Shop, on the West Side. Check Please! is a local restaurant review show on PBS, hosted by some woman whose father is famous for something, what I don’t know. Most guests are normal people, with a dash of Gold Coast snobs thrown in to keep PBS donations coming in. So, the reaction of the other two guests to Dave’s choice is priceless. Especially the prima donna’s. Anyway, I’ll have to stop by sometime for a fat burger or Jump Ball.
