    OP, I'm involved in a couple/several of these transitions annually. On the spectrum; someone will be the biggest sitting duck and lose their job for sitting there like a moron, while someone else will take advantage of the turmoil and make a big leap or two up in their career. And every time, one or two people do make a big leap that would have never happened under prior circumstances. Good luck making this a great transition for you - or just go ski a lot. Stay out of the midwest, you may never escape.

    Went to college and later roomed with several south siders. Ardent Sox fans with disdain for all things from the ‘burbs; Ditka, the senior Daley and Fast Eddie Vrdolyak were deified. Every time we’d get a pizza (or in their lexicon, “a pie”), I was in for 20 minutes of gab about how great Chicago deep dish is and how pizza anywhere else sucks. They also drank Old Style and thought the only vegetable worth eating was canned corn

    I just returned from lunch at a suburban Chicago “local fresh” eatery, where my grilled cheese sandwich came with thinly sliced pear—yes pear WTF—in the middle with the cheese (along with some other stuff).

    This should be avoided.

    I grew up in the northwest burbs and still get some Lou malnati's when I go back and sometimes have some portillo's sent to me. I also drink old style, malort, hit up the Billy goat sometimes. I do however put ketchup on my hot dogs though so there's that. Also this stuff is good. Love visiting but could never live there again.Click image for larger version.

    It sounds like you avoided a perfectly acceptable and delicious food item for no reason at all.

    Here’s one I made a while back, it’s delicious.

    Depending on the size of that thing, could also be called a gut-bomb. looks tasty tho if it's on the small side of things.

    Deep dish, east coast slice style, they’re both delicious and I’ll happily eat either. In fact I’ve had both during the same meal. There’s nothing to argue about.

    The “Chicago style dog” mentality, on the other hand, is an abomination and ketchup suppression must end.

    Taking it back to the OP, I hear Alpine Valley might fire the snow guns tonight.

    While I’m a fan of ketchup on a hot dog or brat, whoever invented the Chicago dog is a fucking genius. The more celery salt on it the better too.

    announced yesterday. We think reg. approval/closing will be feb/march and we are all fine until then. Will have a nice gain on stock I own and unvested RSUs which will be accelerated/vested. While I have given some very strong thought over the years to a winter or two out west, seroiusly doubt my knees could take the beating of skiing several times a week.

    but damn it's tempting...

    You aren't from Chicago if you haven't enjoyed a slice of Lou's.

    Even living in northern New Jersey until I was 18, I will eat the shit out of some Lou Malnati's.

    Damn, I haven't thought about that stuff for years. I lived about 6 blocks from the River North Lou's after college and ate way too much of it. Ahh, the 22 year old metabolism is a marvelous thing.
    Be good, or be good at it.

    I had a buddy who worked at lou's in roselle and would bring pie's to the parties after work. Yeah weed and old style(or 30 racks of high life) and some fucking butter crust. Goddamn I'll be back in the city in a week or two and gonna hit up lots of food(prob some fancy shit too for the ol lady).

    The history of deep dish(and lou malnati's etc) is actually pretty interesting. Shit what were we talking about......oh yeah good luck with the transition and just go fucking ski! And not at wilmot...

    Ha! Tennis is way harder on the knees than sweet pow pow skiing (and I know how much you play haha). DO IT! I know your wife wants too
