This is pretty much how people that live in GTA feel about the ROC. The ROC (rightfully) despises those people.

Also, you have to remember that traditionally those hours would have covered dinnertime down here.

yeah I was yapping to my wife about this amazing poboy place and we walked up to the place at 3pm and they ran out!

when I read their hours of operation (11am-4pm) I was shocked because normally I would've just gone there after 5pm.

also this is how I felt when I pulled into Chick Fil-A on a Sunday.

Or, as others have pointed out, don't cook it in the standard oven. If you make ice cream at home by just sticking the custard in the freezer rather than using an ice cream maker, it's not going to be that good either. And I'm all for cowboy coffee in the right circumstances, but as a general rule just boiling coffee grounds in a saucepan on the stovetop isn't the best way to go.

I put a pizza stone on an outside gas grill. Temp gets to about 750 and pizza cooks in no time.

Secret to the flexible, chewy crust is to let your dough rise overnight in the fridge. Coat with olive oil and then lay plastic wrap in contact with the doughball in a bowl. You need to use two sheets of plastic to leave a nice amount of room for expansion on either side. Any dough exposed to air overnight in the fridge will dry out.

Yeah, with those places, I always assume I'm going to have to go there at lunchtime if I want to have a full menu available.

The CFA thing is especially brutal when you need its magical hangover-curing powers for a Sunday morning coming down.

I feel like I eat pretty well whenever I am home...Surly, The Mill, Victory 44, Quang's, Holy Land, Fika...and I've never managed to be home when they are open, but I've never heard a bad thing about Pig Ate My Pizza.

I mean yeah, if you are talking about random suburban dining establishments...but that's true everywhere. Chicago has awesome food, but if you are in some random post-war suburb, there aren't going to be great restaurants.

Those were the hours of the best little hot dog/sausage place in Chicago. Only open until 4, located in some random corner of the city, not convenient to transit, and yet would have a line out the door every day.

I'm still sad it closed, but honestly, it was so difficult to actually go there, that I'm not sure it matters whether or not it is open.

Hot Dougs!  Duck fat fries.  :drool:

I had the pleasure of trying Hot Doug's before they closed. It wasn't Friday so no duck fat fries but the sausages were excellent. I don't remember exactly what I had but one was a rattlesnake sausage that was awesome. 

 

Actually, that guy closing the restaurant instead of putting it in the care of a trusted manager pisses me off.

Millennials need their hands held and actions validated for everything apparently...



You think someone might be dying on your train, so you go post about it on reddit? WTF? Call 911, hit the button in the car that lets you talk to the conductor, ask the person if they are ok....or just post about it on the internet.

You did the right thing posting on Reddit.  Sure the guy died needlessly, but its the thought that counts.

Ethan, it's cute to see you defend regionalism.


Well, like history, there's the right side of the Delaware River and the wrong side.
