japlady: Barak Obama likes Dixie Kitchen

There's this local PBS show called check please which has 3 local reviewers, each suggesting their favorite resturant, and the 2 others go to each of the two restaurants they didn't suggest and critic them. So the one person says this is my favorite restaurant and why, and the two others comment on how their experience was there and if they agree that its good (sometimes they don't).

Apparently Obama was in one of the very first episodes, but it got shelved cause his TV presence was so much better than the other two, that he dominated the show (that and the other two locals got star struck at being at a table with a local state senator).

The restaurant he talks about, Dixie Kitchen & Bait Shop, has a branch near campus its good. You can also find them on http://www.grubhub.com (for delivery, they WILL deliver to campus!)

The episode will air twice on WTTW on Jan. 16, again Jan. 18 and once more at 4 a.m. Jan. 20, the day Obama is sworn in as president.
