There used to be a little Torta place about a mile walk from our home. It always had coupons, slow service, and mediocre Mexican food. After about 2 years, it went out of business. A few months ago, Gus's New York Pizza & Bar opened up, and it seems to be doing booming business. Lots of cars. Patrons sitting out on tables on the side walks. Appears to be quite busy.
Yesterday, on everyone's houses' numbers, were shoved hand-out fliers for Gus's. Pizza and wing specials... open until 3am... happy hour 2 to 7 Monday-Friday... and I thought to myself... "hey, if the Bears game is not on at the same time as the Cardinals game, I wonder if they'll be playing it?" So I call them, and at noon they were already busy. I'll be able to walk over, and walk back (even more importantly, after consuming ethanol)... and I can check on the homeless people living under the Encanto Street bridge at 91st Ave along the way, to see if there's still a colony of people living under the tarps beneath the bridge - hopefully they've all found a better place to reside.
Il faut voir... hopefully the place won't be full of Oakland Raider fans.. and hopefully they'll have something better served at the bar than just Lite and Bud (bleh!). If you're in the neighborhood, stop on by. I'l have on my Singletary jersey.
