My good friend, David Wallach, insisted our planned lunch be at The Happ Inn out in Northfield. He’d been raving about the “Bill Kurtis” burger and how AMAZING it was.

Pasta and Protein - Fuel for a Run!
It’s that time of year when David Wallach, Pace of Chicago, guilt’s me and my PHAT laziness to work out and run a race! It hasn’t worked yet.   What I can offer all the runners is a good dinner high in protein and carbohydrates. Perfect to fuel up the night before those insanely early... Read more »

PHAT Burger - The Fireplace Inn

Located in Old Town and in the heart of the action The Fireplace Inn is a BBQ joint. My friend David Wallach, Pace of Chicago blogger extraordinaire, kept telling me, “Oh dude it’s the best burger in Chicago, THE BEST!” Well, Dave was in the city, shockingly going to Fireplace, and I joined him and...
