I'm sure there are a lot of pizza places in Florida. I'm just sayin' what she craves.
There is a different taste. People who come from different places usually crave at least one thing that was better "back home". It could be chili, bbq, whatever.
Foodwise, I think I'd miss Jay's potato chips if I moved out of the area. And Aurelio's Pizza.
Delivered pizza for a place called, Villa Rosa in Richton Park for awhile in highschool....I miss the beef and green pepper sandwiches from a place in Chicago Heights....I still miss Autumn.....but, not cold...lol...

Mmm, Aurelio's.

Gotta get it from the old oven, though. The pies cooked in the new oven just don't taste right.

I agree! And my fav is the thin crust spinach, although Sanfrantello's in Glenwood has the BEST thin crust spinach. Their sauce complements the spinach perfectly.

Now I'm craving pizza. And I'm not THAT big of a pizza eater.

Aurelio's is always on my list when I go back home. And if it's the holidays, I'll inevitably run in to someone from high school that doesn't live in the area anymore, too.

Only two places I remember from back in the day. Three Star had "dining" in back of the liquor store on The Hill and Marnell's on Halsted, which is still there I think. Three Star was the best.

it's a south-side company.... kids in the neighborhood used the front door as home when playing baseball in teh street. the original restaurant wasn't too far from the original Comiskey. one of the "kids" fo the family lived in teh town i grew up in, their kids went to my gradeschool, nad they provided the pizza day pizza at scihool. i think the company is in third generation family management now.

Watched the video clip of the Braves pitcher who got his ankle broken last night. Wasn't as gruesome as I had expected. THe Mets player who stepped on the pitcher's foot at first base was a class act -- immediately turning around to check on the guy, apologize, even wiped away some tears when it was all over. Obviously felt awful -- that pitcher is out for the rest of the year, and at 38, who knows whether he'll come back.

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Weekend plans?

Tonight is poker night. Probably will go.

TOmorrow is (sigh) Nick's aunt's somewhat of a surprise 70th birthday celebration. But for a 3-4 hour gathering, we get to drive 2.5 hours EACH WAY. You see, her family has the family cabin this weekend, including her daughter and her daughter's husband/kids from Virginia. So five hours in a car for three hours of hanging out with family.

We leave at 12:30 on Saturday. We'll get home around 10. yay.

yay.
