Dinner at Gene and Georgetti Rosemont IL Thursday September 21 @ 7:30 PM

As you know I'm a spur of the moment kind of guy which is why I waited only 4 weeks before our trip to post this.
Some of you know that Sandra and I will be visiting the heartland in Late September for a tour of the various Laura Ingalls Wilder landmarks, museums and homes around the Midwest, something she always wanted to do since childhood. We will be arriving (hopefully) at 5:45 PM Thursday September 21 at Midway Airport in Chicago and are planning on a late dinner at the suburban location of Gene and Georgetti in Rosemont, we're thinking around 7:45 PM or so which will give us time to get our luggage, rental car and get through hellish Chicago traffic. If anyone who happens to be in the  Chicagoland area and  would like to join us, please respond here.    
 
 
So far we have the following folks who plan to join us.
 
1. ChiBears15
 
2. LAmuse Bouche
 
3. Buddy Roadhouse and Susan
 
4. Chi Town Diner and Patti
 
5. Sandra and yours truly
 
6. irisarbor and Mr. irisarbor
 
7. Davidsanders
 
 
Incidentally, we will be in Milwaukee the following day and plan on having a group join us for a Friday night fish fry. I will post that separately.

I'm quite sure I will be at Milwaukee's Jackson Grill on Friday the 22nd celebrating my 70th day on this planet. I know the owner, so I could request cortados for anyone not interested in gin martinis with bleu cheese stuffed olives.

I take it you won't be joining us at Wegner's St Martin Inn that evenng. You can always pull a Chi Town Diner and do both!

WJ, I am assuming you have already made the reservations for the rental etc or you may have found it easier to take the Orange line 'L' from Midway to downtown and enjoyed the original location of G&Gs. Then you could have taken the Blue line up to O'Hare to grab you car (avoiding driving through rush hour at all). I'm sure you'll have a terrific meal at the Rosemont location, as for being around an airport the building is quite attractive and the interior is very nicely appointed...plus strangely enough I've enjoyed the food a bit more at the O'Hare location. It's just that the downtown location has a certain ambiance that can't be duplicated. Maybe the idea will help someone in the future though. Mangia!

Happy Birthday, MFL. Your first day on earth was September 22, 1947 in Milwaukee and mine was 90 miles to the south in Chicago. We're 140 years old, my Roadfood Virgo brother! We'll be dining at Sebastian's.

WJ, if you plan on going to the Friday night fish fry at Wegner's St Martin Inn, get there early or be prepared for a  long wait. On Fridays, the standing crowd behind the small bar gets deep and the dining room is quite small.

I had the pleasure of visiting the original Gene and Georgetti back in 2011. In fact if I recall it was my favorite new restaurant that I visited that year. I chose the suburban location due to convenience since several folks live out that way. Also Sandra and are making a bee line straight to Milwaukee right after dinner, so our time spent in Chicago will be very limited.

Thanks for the heads up on Wegner's St Martin. I previously visited in 2015 with Ann Peeples and was forewarned about those lines. We did go early last time and I think we'll do the same again this time.

That is so incredible. So which one of you will win the race to getting a motorized scooter first?

I'm still light on my feet and a marvelous dancer at my age and weight. In fact, I still have all my hair, all my teeth, and my pimples finally cleared up. If you recall the video I made and texted it to you of me dancing in front of the Guggenheim in Spain after our meeting a few months ago. The only vehicle in my future is one that goes from zero to sixty in three seconds made by Dodge and that ain't no motorized scooter!

I just added in the time for 7:30 PM, I also put in a reservation for 8
 
Our flight lands at 5:45 pm at Midway (hopefully on time)-  Sandra and I always have horrible luck flying into Chicago- however those have always involved traveling to the west coast, so I'm not sure if  "Chicago" is the common denominator or if "traveling to the west coast" is.  I figure between getting our luggage, rental car and the drive we should arrive at Gene and Georgetti's between 7:30 and 7:45 pm.

Hey, what says "Happy New Year" like a big fat juicy pork chop at an Italian Steakhouse?  We'll have a glass of Mogen David before dinner and everything will be Fine--Dale Fine, shaken not stirred.

Should be okay.  As long as the sun has gone down I can emerge from the coffin containing the soil of my native land, don my opera cape and flit, er, drive over in a matter of minutes.  I'm looking forward to my usual order; Steak, extra bloody.
