Sorry for the non pythonic thread continuation but I wanted to give a
report on Pizza DOC.
I decided to give it another change and dragged Carl along. The pizza
was much better this time. If they can maintain consistent quality I
would recommend them highly.
I +1 the idea of offering car pools to neighborhoods in the city (or
in the suburbs if you can find interesting places people might like to
visit) for food or other runs.
Food outings to Chicago
The Vietnamese neighborhood
Albany Park for Middle Eastern or Korean food
One of the many good chicago bbq places check gwivs comments in
lthforum or his bbq page
One of the many good hotdog places such as Hot Dougs
Food runs with bringing back stuff informally lest hotel gets pissed:
Go to Devon and get sweets from Royal Sweets
Dessert run to chocolate places
Dessert run to Sweet Occasions in various locations
Food runs to suburbs
Schaumburg area for Szechuan House, Indian food (two South Indian
restaurants available from last I was in the area), Japanese food (if
Bowl House has maintained its quality), Japanese fast food (Todai in
Woodfield then Apple Store).
Tech runs to
Fry's or Microcenter
