Clark and Touhy, northwest corner

Built: 1939

This may be the last remnant of the Jewish community on Clark Street in Rogers Park. You can still get every kind of Kosher meat here, but remember that it’s closed on Saturday.  Apparently I'm too meek to be served at their counter.  Seventy year old grannies kept pushing in front of me.

My mom and dad were in town this week to celebrate mom’s 65th birthday. They took a gaggle of relatives to the Bonefish Grill in Skokie. But it was a great time, and Felix was extremely well-behaved. We picked up a bunch of new toys from Walgreens, so every time he got bored we had something new to keep him busy.

  1. This was built as an A&P & was still one into the early 1960s.
