And they'll all be consumed this Sunday on Canada Day.  Any leftovers will be hard as a rock by the time we get to Evanston next month.
 
Hmm...I've got an unopened can of gen-yoo-wine Canadian Maple Syrup provided by my two favorite hosers (not these guys) in the whole world.  Maybe I'll toss it into the travel bag and bring it up.  I'm guessing it'll be pretty darned good on them biscuits.
 
Are you sure you're still too busy to attend, David?

Talk to yer old man.  I'm just following his lead.  I'll be fine without biscuits, but let me know if you're going to make them, I might pick up some Canadian Bacon to dress them up.

Unfortunately, I've had plans for that day that I can't change.

Let's try to make that happen! I think we could be running ahead of schedule by the time we finish at Lulu's, now scheduled 2:30-3:30. If they're too crowded, which is a possibility, I'll just be picking up sesame noodles to bring back to my house. According to the website, Al's closes at 4 on Sundays.

Completely unnecessary research for Evanston Food Day. I went to Hoosier Mama’s today because I saw that she had strawberry pie. I had actually never had strawberry pie before. Boy, it was good. Not overly sweet with her always wonderful crust. Fantastic.

The whipped cream wasn’t actually necessary, but I sure enjoyed it.

Always a show of fine upbringing and good manners to accept whipped cream!  A gentlemen and a scholar!

David - 
 
When you have a chance, can you condense the stops into the latest iteration of the itinerary?  I believe we begin with NY Bagel at 7:30am which sounds great! 
 
Thanks!

David,
 
Can't you add a pre pre breakfast stop before the bagel place?  Any 24 hour diners we can hit at 4:30AM? 
 
Thanks,
Danny

I don't know any places in Evanston that are open 24 hours. There are a couple that open at 6:00, 6:30 and 7:00, including Sher-Main Grill (6:00), Golden Olympic Restaurant (6:30) (their website is under construction), Cupitol (7:00), Ovo Frito Cafe (7:00), and, of course, Walker Bros. Original Pancake House (in Wilmette) (6:30). Of these, I've only been to Walker Bros. (except about 35 or more years ago I went to Golden Olympic once or twice for lunch). 
 
Certainly, anyone who wants to call an audible and go to one of these, that would be fine. It seems that Ovo Frito might be the most interesting. I don't know when the lines start forming at Walker Bros. on Sundays, but I assume fairly early. The wait time there can easily be an hour or two on Saturday and Sunday morning. I don't think I'll make it through the day if I add anything before the bagels.

Here's my current itinerary, although there could still be some modifications, and, of course, the well-practiced audible at any time.
 
I realized that NY Bagel, DB3 and Patisserie Coralie wouldn't need quite so much time, so I've made the start time for the pre-crawl at 8:00. Anyone who wants to start at DB3 and still wants a bagel, let me know, and I'll bring some along.
 
8:00
New York Bagels
3556 1/2 Dempster (Skokie)
https://www.newyorkbagelandbialy.net
 
8:30
DB3 Donuts
1704 Central Street
http://www.db3donuts.com
 
9:15
Patisserie Coralie
600 Davis Street
http://bestfrenchpastries.com/patisseriecoralie/index.html
 
 
10:00-11:15 (first official stop)
Hoosier Mama
749 Chicago Ave.
http://hoosiermamapie.com
 
11:30-12:30
Taco Diablo
1026 Davis Street
http://www.tacodiablo.com
 
 
12:40-1:40
Edzo's
1571 Sherman Avenue
http://edzos.com
 
 
1:45-2:15
Frio Gelato
1301 Chicago Avenue
https://www.friogelato.com
 
 
2:30-3:30 
Lulu's
1026 Davis Street
http://www.lulusevanston.com
If Lulu's is too crowded to get in, I thought I would just pick up about six orders or so (depending on the size of the group) of the sesame noodles and bring them to my house.
 
 
(Audible)
Al’s Deli 
914 Noyes Street
http://alsdeli.net
 
 
3:45-4:45 (could be pushed back, depending on time spent at Al's)
Evanston Chicken Shack
1925 Ridge Avenue
http://www.evanstonchickenshack.com
We can order while finishing up at Al's. There's about a 15-20 minute wait time. The plan is to bring the chicken and fried shrimp to my house (I'll pass out the address during the Crawl). Will there be a fried shrimp smackdown? 
 
5:00-6:00
Poochie’s
3602 Dempster St.
Skokie
http://www.poochieshotdogs.com
 
 
6:15
Graeter’s
940 Green Bay Road (Winnetka)
https://www.graeters.com/retail-stores/chicago/winnetka
 
Let me know any comments and suggestions to make this run smoothly.
 
David

I'm not really sure.
 
These are the folks who I think have said they are coming.
 
Buddy and Mrs. Roadhouse
 
Abe Froeman and Mr. Maki
 
ChiTownDiner
 
ChiBears15
 
JRPfeff and Pie Diva
 
ScreamingChicken
 
Billyboy and Dayna
 
Anne Peeples (edit: left off list by accident!)
 
 
These folks have expressed an interest, but I'm not sure if they're coming.
 
Irisarbor
 
LAmuse Bouche
 
Quijote  and Sancho Panza
 
MilwFoodlovers
 
Amilcar Jamie
 
It would be great if everyone could start confirming, although I certainly understand if it's too soon for some to make plans. If everyone comes I'll need to put a few more chairs out at my house. 
 
David
