Media meal: Top Chef CHICAGO!!!!

Oh man, I am so far behind the curve. I know that Top Chef debuted like 10 years ago (or a week and a half, whatever). But it's been quite the week.

Funny thing happened on the way to the gym ... some woman hit my car again! Really, does my car have a huge "Hit me" sign and no one said anything? This is what I get for trying to go to the gym. Taco Bell, on the other hand, has never been part of an vehicular mishap. Is someone trying to tell me something?

Anyhow, back to the task at hand. I'm watching the first episode and immediately, I'm loving the Chicago thing. Being a suburbanite, I treat Chicago like most tourists do. I'm so psyched to see favorites on the screen. First episode, they go to the original Uno Pizzeria. I personally would have chosen Pizzeria Due, a quaint, busy and delicious pizza joint across from the Bloomingdale's Medinah Temple. The place is always packed, but you order your pizza while waiting in line to reduce the wait required to make such a huge pie.

I'm interested in where this is all going. Will they make Chicago hot dogs? Go to the Ukrainian Village and make pastries? Visit Everest and make inventive, five-star dishes out of stuff from Walgreens?

They should have consulted me on this one.
