Irony Defined

  • A county health department in southern Illinois found its Christmas party anything but tasty after dozens of people fell ill at a restaurant. The head of the Lawrence County Health Department says she was among 42 people who got sick during the buffet gathering of 72 people on Dec. 15 in Lawrenceville.
We know exactly where the Lawrenceville County Health Department Christmas party won't be held next year. We also heard there's a brand new item at the top of their "to investigate" list for this week.

These folks obviously have weak stomachs. Allow me to list the places I've consumed vittles on the West Side:

- Mary's BBQ - 5th & Pulaski
- Joes BBQ - Chicago & Avers
- Ednas - Kedzie & Madison
- Sharks - California & Van Buren
- Alices - Chgo Ave & Parkside
- Popeyes - Chgo & Kedzie
- White Castle - Roosevelt & Western , Madison & Springfield
- Jimmys - Pulaski & Grand
- McDonalds - Madison & Karlov, Western & Warren, Roosevelt & Kedzie
- Burger King - Ogden & Western
- The Shithole (forget the name) across from Juvy court
- Fredines BBQ - Chgo Ave & Christiana
- Beefy ("Best Beef In Town") - Chgo Ave & Homan
- Al's - Lake & Francisco
- Four Sisters - Ogden/Harding
- Boston Beef - Chgo/Grand
- Doggy's S.S. Soul Food - 2800 Blk. west of Harrison
- Titanic Sub - Chgo Ave & Hamlin

The list goes on and on. Hell, I've even crashed In-Progress West Side BBQ's in Garfield Park, feigning a "Man With A Knife" call to gain access to the stud working the grill in order to gank some fresh BBQ'd food. Never got sick from any place I've eaten at. Who says the tolerance doesn't build and the immune system strengthen after years in the ghetto???

1:02 AM ("Old School Fillmo'")

Yessssssssss! You, sir are a true gourmet.

Absolutey, no one could outdue Spraggs at Homan and Fulton for rib tips or a small end slab.

Working days on the Fourth of July was always a lip-smacking repast in Garfield Park. The locals would always fill us up with the greatest barbecued ribs with watermelon or peach cobbler for dessert.

It still pisses me off that not one of them would share the recipes of their fantastic barbecue sauces.

The magnificent dining was one of 011's best-kept secrets. Then again, even Fillmo' barbecue for six consecutive tours could get tiresome.

Anyone remember the great steaks washed down by a cold one in the back room at 3800 W. Lake St? Harry Hewitt and the old Zone 4 dispatchers had the phone number in the event of 10-1s or a riot. (our radios were in the squad cars back then and cell phones did not exist).

The midnight tours always ended up with breakfast at Rocky's, 3756 W. Chicago, where we dined with "Wee Willie" Messino, Sam "Momo" Giancana, Marshall Caifano, Chris Cardi and other Outfit guys. While the mobsters occasionally picked up the tab, there was no "quid pro quo".

Eat your hearts out, 018 (pun intended).

Considering where the clout babies at 35th Street put their tongues, an eColi epidemic is long overdue.
