Some time ago a friend complained that I hadn’t written anything for a few days and then it was all about Food Trucks in New York. My response was that I did not like the places I had visited in Chicago that week and they weren’t worth going back to. He commented that part of the reason he enjoyed reading was to see where I was travelling on my explorations and that he wanted to see the good ‘and’ the bad. So with much sadness I have to admit that I went to The ‘New’ Mic Duck’s Drive-In just by the Belmont Blue station. It wasn’t that bad, just that it was another hot-dog I had to endure that tasted the same as all the others and that I only munched through to get a ‘hit’ on the blue line at Belmont. The disapointment was that I found somewhere else nearby to return to that I think I will prefer to blog about, but more of that when I actually do.
Inside the instructions were to not throw your tray into the garbage. I pondered briefly if I was OK to throw my food into the same receptacle, but perhaps that was a little churlish of me on this occasion.
In the end I got the ‘special’ of a Polish with fries and a drink for $4.35. I think that I preferred the poster on the wall in the end.
In the end I didn’t dispatch the dog to the bin, and in a sad way I felt sorry for it so I devoured it to save it from any more hurt and harm at the hands of the grill man.
I ‘can’ be kind like that sometimes
