The first stage of the definitive Chicago Italian Beef tasting will begin at Al's, 1079 W Taylor at 1030 am on Saturday, November 15. Please join if you can. You may email me for more details, tho I may not be able to reply before late Friday. Do not let that stop you - just show up at Al's. There will be transportation available.
It will take most of the day, but feel free to join us for as much or as little as you wish. In the true spirit of Chowhound, the more opinions, the better.
the board will now return to the more serious work of passing judgement on food... stay tuned for beef rankings.
