I've got to save up some vacation time for when my cousin and his wife come out to visit me in September, so I'm not sure how much extra I will have left over. I'll have to sleep on it.

I predict that I will also be wearing a striped shirt two or more days, probably on the same day as Lisa.

I predict that my husband might not want to spend our one year wedding anniversary at the Empty Bottle, so I will leave him at home and he probably wouldn't even notice. But in a good way.

I predict i will be extra careful walking up and down the stairs.

I predict I will be drunk. A lot.

I thought season 4 was kinda slow, but if you find it that way as well, don't worry...5-7 are all pretty great.

Has anyone ever eaten at the Chicago Pizza and Over Grinder company before? I saw a special on the food network for it and people were freaking out over it. Here's a link to their website: http://www.chicagopizzaandovengrinder.com/
Want to know if it's worth a visit while we're up there. The mediterranean bread looks yummy!!
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 4:12 pm
 
I've never heard of Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Company, but at 2121 N Clark St. they're exactly one block south of where the Valentine's Day Massacre happened.

Never been there. It looks upscale. Will investigate this weekend.

A couple of people I work with swear by this place. It's always a long wait, but worth it I'm told
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 4:45 pm
 
If you read the history page on their site, it talks about the Valentine's day massacre.

The portions look gigantic at this place.

Nope, the Valentine's Day Massacre happened at a warehouse at 2122 N Clark Street, so I guess the Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Company is actually across the street from where that happened, not a block away. Therefore, it's possible that it's in the building that used to be a rooming house where members of Al Capone's gang had rented a room overlooking Bugs Moran's warehouse. Woah.

The Biograph Theater is on Lincoln Avenue, and that's where Dillinger was shot.

Dudes, what other kind of weird/crazy Chicago history bits are nearby the event? I'm a dork for that kind of stuff....
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 4:57 pm
 
It's not near the Empty Bottle, but the Green Mill Lounge is still around. In the 20s that place was a mob hangout part-owned by Capone henchman "Machine Gun" Jack McGurn. From their website: "Manager Danny Cohen had given McGurn the 25% stake to 'persuade' comedian/singer Joe E. Lewis from moving his act south to the New Rendezvous Café at Clark and Diversey. McGurn managed to convince Lewis by slitting his throat and cutting off his tongue. Miraculously, Lewis recovered, but his songs never regained their lush sound. The incident was later immortalized in the movie The Joker is Wild, with Frank Sinatra as Joe E. Lewis and a Hollywood soundstage as The Green Mill."
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 5:08 pm
 
The Green Mill is also featured in the James Caan epic "Thief." Equally important, I know.
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 5:19 pm
 
That's the kind of cool stuff I want to know about. Thanks! Anything else?
What about the Chicago Fire?

Posted: Mar 7, 2006 6:28 pm
 
Has anyone ever eaten at the Chicago Pizza and Over Grinder company before? I saw a special on the food network for it and people were freaking out over it.

I try to eat at this place once a week. Go on Wednesday or Thursday if you don't want to wait an hour and a half. Suprisingly, it is reasonably priced too. I suggest a greek salad (hold the anchovies) and the white flatbread. The pizza pot pies are great too.
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 6:33 pm
 
Valery, also good to know you guys are coming up this year!!
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 6:34 pm
 
did they ever tear down the Lexington (?) Hotel, Al Capone's old hotel? I used to drive by it every weekend when my family would go to Chinatown. It was in pretty bad shape when I lived there ~15 years ago.
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 6:48 pm
 
The Lexington was torn down about 10 years ago.
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 7:23 pm
 
Hey Doug! Yeah we're coming up. Haven't missed a Chicago Blackout yet. We should all go eat at this place when we get in town.

Excited to see your band play too.
Posted: Mar 7, 2006 8:33 pm
 
Dudes, what other kind of weird/crazy Chicago history bits are nearby the event? I'm a dork for that kind of stuff....

jack, there are plenty of books like "crime chicago" that map out famous crimes and whatnot around the city starting in the 1800s to the fairly present. good book.

It's a horrible place to be drunk, though. Unless you like being "shushed" by a librarian/bartender every five minutes.
Posted: Mar 8, 2006 6:52 pm
 
yeah libraries are a pretty shitty place to get drunk at. those book worms can't mix a drink for shit.
Posted: Mar 8, 2006 10:03 pm
 
you might be wrong abou that seeing as we find beer and liquor bottles in our bathrooms daily...
Posted: Mar 8, 2006 10:11 pm
 
In my future occupation as fulltime wino bum, I plan to drink in libraries regularly. They are heated and the employees are liberal, so they will look at me with pity rather than scorn, which I won't appreciate when I pee on their cheap carpeting.

Timmy Vulgar will eat endless amounts of Char Dogs and Ernie Q will shit himself while filming the Oblivians final show ever. Greg Cartwright's head will explode and reveal his true alien self all the while the Blackout crowd will deam the whole thing "boring" until GG Allin's corpse breaks through the stage screaming, "I Wanna Fuck Myself".

We can only hope, see you in May.............

When I used to work in the fitting rooms at the Levis Outlet in Gurnee Mills Mall, we had heavily perfumed carpet powder because at least a few times week, some kid would be encouraged by his mother to pee on the floor instead of walking fifty yards to the bathroom. My friend who worked at the Bugle Boy outlet actually had someone SHIT in the fitting room.

Lisa, you work at the Harold Washington Library? That place is a hobo hotbed! When I was a law clerk I would go there to nap.

SHIT in the fitting room.
I was at a bar once and someone shit in the urinal.
Posted: Mar 9, 2006 6:00 pm
 
My prediction is that someone will give Nick G. a ticket for Saturday night, because if he can't get in to see the Oblivians, something is horribly wrong.
Posted: Mar 9, 2006 7:23 pm
 
there is a gay bar in green bay that got a little 'present' in the cloth hand towel roller. our guitar player had to "log out of his b-drive" and the shitter was out of toilet paper, so had climbed on the sink and flossed is ass...

the tamale guy

Posted: Mar 9, 2006 8:52 pm
 
All the bars here are gay.
Posted: Mar 9, 2006 9:07 pm
 
the tamamle guy is this mexican dude, actually there are quite a few, that go around the bars and sell bags of tamales. 6 for $5. i told matt that it would be a good idea if he set up a 'stall' at the blackout and sold his delicious goods.
Posted: Mar 9, 2006 9:10 pm
 
once i thought buying a ziploc bag of hot tamales a good idea. next morning i was shown the error of my ways.
Posted: Mar 9, 2006 9:12 pm
 
do tell... What is this "tamale guy"?

Jack, he's like Lou Malnati's, but a cute little mexican guy and he has tamales instead of pizza. He goes to all the bars selling these sick looking ziplock bags full of tamales. They're super good for you and if he were to retire there'd be a bunch of drunks going home hungry.
Shit! I could go for one right now.

The best tamale guy is Rigoberto... he has 2 gold studds in his left ear and a white and red jacket... his tamales actually have some MEAT in them! They taste so good after cheap suds all night, and they come out real easy the next day... sounds like you know about that Kev.

I work next door to Lou Malnati's and it's the best... $6 at lunch gets you a personal sized deep dish pizza with the slab-o-sausage and a salad or soup... and the shits all afternoon!

RE: Chicago crime stuff... there's an actual bus tour you can take. They drive you around in an old school bus all painted black to all the infamous mobster sites. Where the Valentines Day massacre was is now a parking lot for a yuppie condo.

Tamale Guy is like Field of Dreams. Last night we were sitting at da bar (p.s., when did Happy Village become the newest hot spot? I am so out of the loop) with our heads in our hands saying "Where's the tamale guy? Waaah" and lo and behold, he walked in.

I've never gotten sick from the tamales, but I've only gotten the cheese ones.

i think tamales in general are like jesus
and the tamale guy is always a different incarnation of god
the tamale guy shows up inside my building at 9am for christ sake
all i have to do is close my eyes and pray
and i get breky, lunch, and dinner!

im sensing an ambulance will be involved...black hellacopters, Al-Q attack,hopefully no BLACK OUT SARS like from last year, i will get laid..!!


instead of SARS we might get the mumps!

i just saw this news story...

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Seven Midwestern states are dealing with mumps.
An epidemic in Iowa has grown into more than 600 suspected cases.
Health officials, calling it a serious threat, said that although the highest concentration of cases is still in eastern Iowa, the mumps has shown up in at least one person in half of the state's 99 counties
Iowa epidemiologist Dr. Patricia Quinlisk called it a "serious threat." She said officials are doing "everything we can" to get it under control.
Iowa Department of Health Director Mary Mincer Hansen said questions about how the epidemic started and why it hit Iowa haven't been answered.
Other states also seeing cases are Nebraska, Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Officials at Southern Illinois University are trying to educate people about the disease after three students there showed symptoms this week. A school health official said there's "no reason to panic about mumps." She said it usually resolves itself.
The mumps outbreak is the nation's first in 20 years. Mumps is an illness caused by a virus and spread by coughing and sneezing. The most common symptoms are fever, headache and swollen salivary glands under the jaw, but it can be more serious.
Health officials said two infected airline passengers may have helped spread Iowa's mumps epidemic to other Midwestern states.
The spread illustrates how quickly disease can spread through air travel.
Kansas officials say that as of Thursday, the state had 66 confirmed, probable and suspected cases of mumps -- compared with 48 the day before.
The Iowa health department identified two people who were potentially infectious when they were traveling in late March and early April.
Officials in other states have not yet linked any cases to the air travelers. But because the illness' incubation is two to three weeks, cases may not begin appearing until about now.
Outbreak

THE DISEASE
• Caused by virus spread by coughing and sneezing.
• Most common symptoms include fever and headache.

Posted: May 4, 2006 5:51 pm
 
My prediction: Many people driving into town will be late and miss a significant portion of the show on the day they arrive because of massive construction on the Dan Ryan expressway.
Posted: May 4, 2006 6:05 pm
 
Any tips getting around it?
Posted: May 4, 2006 6:19 pm
 
don't take the dan ryan. gett off it as soon as you can and take city streets.
Posted: May 4, 2006 6:25 pm
 
The Lake Shore Drive alternate route takes you a wee bit out of the way, but traffic usually keeps moving and it's a nice drive.
Posted: May 4, 2006 11:06 pm

The skyway will still be OK, just take like the second exit after you get off the skyway. It's called STONY ISLAND AVENUE / LAKE SHORE DRIVE. Follow the signs a mile or two to Lake Shore Drive, and take that north to Chicago Avenue. Then you take that a couple few miles to Western Avenue and you're pretty much there. Normally that would be a dumb way to get to the Bottle, but seriously with the construction on the Dan Ryan it's probably the best way to go.
