Amongst a bunch of other Big Ten-related memorabilia (more on those later), I came across this Student Power magazine form November of 1967. You can see the cover photo is of a protest and this is a "FREE Magazine for Students in the Big Ten Universities Exclusively". This was in a pile of football programs from Purdue University.
If you open the front cover, you find this interesting box full of enrollment data. Look at Northwestern. They dropped 3K students from 1966 to 1967? That seems crazy.
Alas, I didn't come home with this artifact, but I'm hoping that someone else picked it up and it didn't end up in the dumpster.
Earlier this winter, I wrote about the old Lou Malnati's menu and mentioned that as I was waiting around for my pie to finish up, I spied an old Chicago Tribune article posted on the wall that included the original Lou Malnati's Italian Salad Dressing Recipe. The Tribune reporter called it "prized". We were set to host a little pizza party over the weekend, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Here's the article as seen through my mobile phone's camera.
I'm not a wine drinker, so the fact that the recipe called for Burgundy wine didn't strike me as odd. I went shopping at Angelo Caputos in Addison - a really incredible shopping experience - and when I got to the wine section I found Burgundy wine was carried ONLY in those HUGE jugs. And they were dirt cheap. The only issue is that needed just 4 ounces. We ended up with a whole-lotta-wine that Nat won't drink.
I've taken the recipe and modified it a bit by eliminating the percentages (60…
As we spend more time up at Twin Lakes in Wisconsin, we are beginning to get to know the local community a bit more including places to shop like Lake Geneva Antique Mall and this place above" Anderson's Candy Shop, which is actually in Illinois. Richmond, Illinois to be exact. Richmond is a border town. Check out this map that shows the town of Richmond, the location of Anderson's and it's proximity to the Wisconsin border (which I've circled in green) as well as Twin Lakes of Elizabeth and Mary.
Anderson's isn't the first candy shop that we've discovered. Because of Google Maps rerouting us one time due to traffic and accidents, we came across the Riverside Chocolate Factory in McHenry. It is shaped like a teepee, so it is hard to miss. I'll try to post something on that place the next time we go because I think that the kids actually like that place better. Mostly because they have LOTS of little bins of name-brand candy.
This is the 17th coaster added to the 'coaster collection'. You can see the whole archive here. This is from The Betty where we went for a 'too cool for school' cocktail while we waited for a table at Duck Duck Goat.
The Betty is a pretty big place so we found a spot to hang for a while and drink our craft cocktails like the cool kids. We weren't out of place, thankfully, because Nat, her sister and her mom were there to class our group up.
