    As long as we're all just speculating here, when I drove by yesterday it looked like they had a good month to go. And of course, one can never predict how quickly or slowly the City will fulfill their part, either.

    Sorry to just speculate but I didn't feel comfortable whipping out my phone to record the conversation. It won't happen again.

    LOL - we're all just speculating, including the recent piece in the Tribune.

    I'm as excited the Organ Grinder's monkey on payday to have Diner Grill back and plan to visit soon.

    I'm trying to figure out when I can get drunk enough to make a return visit. I've learned over the years that my enjoyment of the place suffers a bit when not preceded by an aggressive pre-game session. As my son said to me recently, "you don't go to Diner Grill, you end up there." Pretty wise words for such a youngster. :lol:

    While I agree Lucas is wise beyond his years, a fact of which I have mentioned to Ellen more than once, my Diner Grill perspective differs.

    When I first moved to Chicago, 35+ years ago, I lived off Irving and Lake Shore and reverse commuted to the near northern burbs every work day for a suit and tie job. Super early breakfast at Diner Grill twice a week or more. As time went on, and jobs and lifestyle changed, I was always a regular or semi regular, though hours were different.

    Diner Grill holds memories for me, two of which stand out. Though, like many great meal memories, they have little to do with what was on the plate.

    One early morning Diner Grill breakfast there was a fellow diner, stone sober by the way, picking at his Slinger. We got to chatting, turned out he was military and going overseas for the first time the next day. We got to chatting, laughing, his appetite picked up. I bought his breakfast, shook his hand, wished him well and said I'd think a good thought for him. Then there were the 5am exotic dancers putting on an booze fueled impromptu show, another fond memory.

    Happy to have Diner Grill Back, Count me a Fan!
