X1 - We just got back from Chicago. The last five miles were treacherous.
Which brings us to our strange Roadfood coincidence of the day. We met a friend of Bobbi's for the friend's 50th birthday at the Fireplace Inn on Wells Street in Chicago. After dinner we decided it would be fun to drop by Burt's Place to give BuddyRoadhouse some trouble. Problem was, Burt's would not show up on our GPS.
No problem, I'll call one of my Roadfood pals and get the address (thanks Beth, Mike, & Greg!). So I'm on my cellphone making the call in front of the restaurant when one of the smokers on the sidewalk tells me "Burton Place is right there," as he pointed across Wells Street
. As Alanis would say, isn't it ironic?
We did get to Burt's and completely surprised Jeff. That pizza smelled so good, it was a real shame that the oven was shut off.
