Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Somebody needs to explore the semiotics of meatloaf, a la Barthes. One of the crass cartoons my kids watch features a stay-at-home dad who makes an evidently inedible meatloaf at virtually every meal. It hurts me, because my meatloaf is usually pretty good.

I wouldn't call Johnny O's a dining destination. But if you're catching a Sox game it's not a bad choice.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 1:58pm Uncle Michael:

You call that baseball? How's Shields working out?
  Fri. 6/10/16 2:00pm Dean:

Do tell. None of the places near me here has a "best" gyro, I'm afraid. Might be better places in SF. Won't have a car in Chicago, so we'll use the public transit, which is how we get around 1/3 of the time around here, anyway.

When I travel solo I look for dining destinations, where that means "nice" restaurants. Too hard/$$$$ with young kids. Judging from the menu, the kids would love Johnny O's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 2:01pm Uncle Michael:

I'm not up on where the best gyros places are in a given area these days. Burke?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 2:02pm Uncle Michael:

I'd google best gyros in chicago and see which places are near to your lodging.

Hello Uncle. Is that a Kohler engine you are using?
  Fri. 6/10/16 2:09pm Dean:

Goddamn, I'm hungry.

I don't mind looking like a tourist. Do the waiters at these restaurants recommend appropriate wines to go with the "beef"?
Avatar Fri. 6/10/16 2:09pm Rich in Washington:

There was this cheesy chain franchise around here that did döner sandwiches but they were literally like a Kronos restaurant in Teutonic drag. Old German flags everywhere. Meat was virtually identical to that whirling monstrosity found in those generic Gyros joints, sans the tdziki sauce, feta.
Is this a thing in the US?

Looks like Greektown is relatively close, at least a couple good options.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 2:14pm Uncle Michael:

Greektown is GREAT but go there for sit-down Greek food. Get the gyros from a more modest location.
  Fri. 6/10/16 2:16pm Dean:

Good idea. At this rate my family will be dining about seven times per day.

Dammit. Now I really want a gyros.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 2:18pm Uncle Michael:

The gyros will be good there...but you'll want to order different things. Greek Islands was always our go-to but there are other good places. Saganaki is delicious...not just a show.
Avatar Fri. 6/10/16 2:20pm Rich in Washington:

Not a single Greek restaurant in my neighborhood - lots of crap gyros joints or places that make 'em, but our last, rather lackluster Greek joint closed a couple of years ago.
Avatar Fri. 6/10/16 2:20pm chromaphone:

I would want a gyro if I hadn't just eaten 2 huge slices of macaroni and cheese bacon pizza.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 2:22pm Uncle Michael:

And the thing is, Chicago is a great restaurant town...but we're just talking about the local staples...and we haven't discussed pizza.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 2:22pm Parq:

Rich -- opposite problem here. Greek restaurants, seeking four-star status, with opulent facilities filled with super-rich millennials throwing back overpriced cocktails and talking too loud.
  Fri. 6/10/16 2:26pm Dean:

The LA area used to have Papadakis Taverna, famous (or notorious) for being the site where USC's football team recruited players. I went there only once when I was a kid, ill-equipped to judge the fare. I vaguely recall the smashing of dishes.

I may be in Chicago in the next 2 years, so these points will prove very helpful. Was there for a few too-brief days many moons ago, but went with business colleagues with very bland tastes and therefore didn't eat anywhere interesting.

@james that's the thing with going out in a group, it is lowest common demominator.

Also, on Michigan Ave. a place called The Gauge. Very busy at lunch, but that's because its great. Fanicer, for working types, meeting clients, etc. Excellent food and service. $13-$25 entres at lunch.

I gotta go the museum at the old Chess studios one of these days.

Man, that Gage has an 18oz bone-in ribeye for sixty bucks at dinner! I really love a good steak at a good restaurant. (Still dreaming of that Porterhouse at Tanino in Westwood...) But cripes, I can't deal with the price and, often, the volume. I once dined solo at Peter Luger's, where there was precisely one steak that a mere individual could reasonably consume. But I bet that Gage ribeye is good.

Sharing a t-bone is for sure the way to go at Peter Luger.

Of course, leftover are nice, too. We never seem to have any.

DOUBLE clickie-star for "Cat".

excellent show UM!

That string passage just kills me every time.

Leftovers work when you're near home. They're hard to deal with in a hotel room.

Guilty pleasure, this Al Stewart. When it was a hit it aired every fifteen minutes. Not enough to wear it out, though.

Agreed, Parq!!

Hey, I wonder if the Chess museum is open on Saturday's. I'll be within ten blocks or less.

Still love Year of the Cat.

I'm even okay with the obligatory sax break. It was the 70s, after all.

Unmistakable voice. Favourite album is Past, Present and Future'.

Thanks Uncle. Good weekend, y'all.

Off for a po-boy cauliflower cheese.

I had the sheet music for "Yeah of the Cat" as a wee piano playing lad. Also, "She's Got a Way." Also Joe Jackson's "Night and Day" album.

Buddy of mine hired Al Stewart to play his 50th birthday. I wonder if Diamanda Galas would consider playing my 60th?
Avatar    Fri. 6/10/16 2:55pm Jeff Golick:

"Yeah" is of course "year," in Massachusettsese.

There's some uncertainty as to how and precisely when Peter Wood, co-writer of YOTC, left us.

Frank cannot resist a little yodel.
Avatar Fri. 6/10/16 2:57pm chromaphone:

I remember being a wee lad and when Year of the Cat kept coming on the radio thinking "that singer sounds weird".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 2:58pm Stevel:

So, does this mean you're really leaving?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 2:58pm Uncle Michael:

For real.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 2:58pm Stevel:

Wait, did I miss something? LEAVING leaving?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/10/16 2:59pm Uncle Michael:

I lied.

Don't mind me, just free associating.
