Tony Bad for president.
Bob, you did a FANTASTIC job, we had a great time. That is why I didn't post what I wanted to last night; I felt it was putting too much emphasis on the nastiness & detracted from what an awesome day we had. As other have pointed out, I would not let one naysayer stop you!
Also if we are doing NW Indiana can we go to the place with the frog legs, please please please please. I can't remember the name right now, but youse guys in Chicago know where I am talking about.
Buddy, what we got on the sample platter was chicken parm (out fricking standing), a chicken crespelle & eggplant strata, which my mother went nuts over when we had leftovers today. Crespelles are becoming more & more common in the nicer Italian restaurants. I remember having one stuffed with veal in Long Beach, California, a few years back.
And yes, thank you to EVERYONE for pushing the times back so I could go get the brats we're all gonna eat in 2 weeks. Special thanks to abe & Mr Maki. (how were the curds? hee hee)
