“Undiscovered Chicago”

Carl’s Red Hots

Originally uploaded by officergleason.

The observant will notice that this is the third time I’ve mentioned Carl’s Red Hots on this here blog. This repetition does have a purpose: I want to start another round of talks on “Undiscovered” Chicago*.

This all stems from a magazine I flipped through this memorial day weekend. I spent this Memorial Day Weekend in Portland at wedding for two close college friends. In between the festivities, I read through a magazine that touted “50 Things Every Portlander Must See!” I think this magazine came from a hotel…but I can’t remember every detail from this weekend. However, the point of the article remains: what are some of the sights that you think all Chicagoans should see?

Pick #1 for me is still Carl’s Red Hots, on 83rd and Jeffery. The best, and some of the cheapest, hot dogs in town.

    I love a good dog, but living on the north side I doubt I’ll ever go to Carl’s. Don’t know if you caught this last week on Conan’s show, but Jennifer Aniston was asked what she’s been digging about Chicago (since he was recently here and she’s been hanging around too). She said a favorite of hers is Weiner Circle, saying “they talk rude to everyone and all that”. I have not eaten there in a long time, and probably never sober, but thought it was funny that she brought that place up on National TV.
