In Response to Re: Bitter cold - ICE:
Nikki - I used ~sigh~ to sell my woodcarvings at a gallery in Evanston. I was there every Nov. and most Julys. Oh, my goodness, that was a good time. I don't know any restaurants in St. Louis ~another sigh~ I just never had the opportunity. Back and forth to St. Louis' Barnes Hospital but no restaurants. lol Let me know when you're making the trip next year .... there's always the possibility we could meet. While agoo I made a trip to WalMart and everything was dry and easy ... no ice on the roads. Whew And because I live in a little condo everything outside gets taken care of ..... I had no snow to shovel but they came to spread 'salt' on the driveway and sidewalks. And I missed those guys .... I always take them hot coffee and ..... you guessed it .... cookies !!

Evanston is great, very "eclectic" city.
There is a maker of one of the best, no make that the best salami that I have had in the St. Louis area. Look for Volpi Salami. I am sure it is found in many grocery stores in the area. A sandwich made with the Genoa salami, Provolone Cheese some roasted red peppers on a crusty French or Italian bread just can't be beat. A little giardiniera adds a little spice to the sandwich.
By the way I am sure the guys will be around again to make sure YOUR area is kept clear! They know a good thing.
