Yaakov raves over the Slice of Life in Sokie, a Chicago suburb.
That's where we ordered in the Kosher banquet food in from in 2k6.

Super scary :)  I don't know if it was really that bad, but even if it
was, it should be better now.  There is a big reconstruction effort
around the campus.  They have torn down a lot of the rougher stuff and
haver started construction on relatively expensive townhomes.

Absolutely.  There will be an auction this year and hopefully some
celebs will go on the block.

Also, if you are job hunting, don't forget to bring your resume for
the job fair and expo on Tuesday!
