Quote for Today: Did you just buy a five dollar shake? Vincent, Pulp Fiction Mia: Sure did. Vincent: A shake? Milk and ice cream? Mia: Uh-huh Vincent: It costs five dollars? Mia: Yep Vincent: You don’t put bourbon in it or anything? Waiter: Nope Vincent: Just checking. National Chocolate Milkshake Day 2013: September 12th An 1885 British newspaper describes the milkshake as a manly drink composed of whiskey, ice cream and milk. For the next thirty-seven years, milkshakes were associated with bars, taverns and inns. It was not until 1922 that Woolworth’s starting selling what we know today as a milkshake in Chicago. The man responsible for this was Ivar “Pop” Caulson who simply added scoops of ice cream to an old fashioned malted milk. Even though people had been drinking ice cream and milk as a healthy drink...

Quote for Today:  Chicago will give you a chance.  The sporting spirit is the spirit of Chicago.  Lincoln Steffens Way back in 1833, Chicago, Illinois was incorporated as a village, its’ population was around two hundred.  Today, Chicago is the largest city in Illinois and the third most populous city in America.  The City itself has 2.7 million residents while the “Chicagoland” area boasts 9.8 million inhabitants.  Over the years Chicago has become an international hub for finance, commerce, and industry.  With all the growth that has occurred since its humble beginnings, Chicago has seen its share of great restaurants over the years.  The Berghoff Restaurant founded by Herman Berghoff over 114 years ago is one that stands out in my mind. Herman originally owned a brewery in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and his beer was so popular he decided...

Quote for Today:  A quotation at the right moment is like bread in a famine.  ~Talmud Today in History The famous New York City restaurant, Delmonico’s, closed its door on May 21, 1923.  Regarded as one of the finest restaurants in the nation, they just couldn’t survive during prohibition.  First of all, it is very hard for fine dining to make money without the high profit of alcohol offsetting the low profit in food.  Secondly, Delmonico’s could not produce the Baked Alaska and Lobster Thermidor that made them famous without alcohol.  Realistically, more than half of their menu relied on alcohol to complete a dish.  Subsequently, prohibition not only nailed the coffin shut on taverns, pubs, bars, and saloons, but also turned down the sheets of a large number of restaurants’ deathbeds.  The 19th Amendment brought about the lucrative business of...
