You are certainly right about that town going in the toilet. You lasted 8 more years there than I did. When I moved on in 1990 it was pretty much in decline than. We didnt get up there last year because of some problems the wife had. But it seems every year we go up there, some more of the fun stuff we used to do when we first got married is closed up or gone.
We used to hang out at a little place over on Washington Street called The Dog House, small nice place with a pretty regular following. I see now that that whole area has been built up and the only thing left of the original Dog House is the sign.
Its just so sad to see that town go to heck, back in the late 50s to the early 80s it was a great place to live and grow up in. Althrough Waukegan isn't the only town in the USA to face this plight, there are so many going down this same road these days.
Looking foward to our trip up there this year, that Quanset pizza and those few brews are starting to call my name, not to say that a couple of good friends always call and say "hey we ate over at the Quanset tonight" Thinking about taking them off my good friends list. LOL LOL

Hey Harry, is it safe to put away the snow-thrower until next winter or not yet???
Yep. We already had a 2-week stretch of upper 70s-low 80s in March... so I'm "cautiously optimistic" that spring has sprung!

Harry, did you put away your snow-thrower yet?
Yeah, I think we're safely out of snow season by now.

Born in Chicago and lived across from Midway Airport. Grew up mostly in Oak Lawn. Moved to California and 5 years ago to Arizona. Chicago had the best food. Pizza in California and Arizona sucks for the most part. My favorite hobby shop was called "Trost Hobby Shop " and if my memory serves it was on 63 rd. st. Any chance it is sitll there ?
Closed many years ago (2006?).
