Chicago chow icon desacrated

JSM | Feb 28, 2004 12:55 PM

47th ward residents awoke Friday morning to discover that a favorite icon of chow, known locally as the "Colossus of Damen" had been desacrated by area pols.

The Colossus started out as a gyro,and was later transformed to an al pastor when Mexican owners took over.Sad to say this once proud anchor of chow is slated for demolition in the near future and will be replaced by a CVS drug store and condos.

Night watchman "Damen Av.Danny" pictured below claimed to be "out like a light" when the valdalism took place.
