It's true that Milwaukee Ave in Chicago has great Mexican food. We went to a little restaurant called Moran first thing when we arrived and had delicious pickled carrots and cauliflower, enchiladas, a cuban sandwich, and chicken mole.



Then we went and watched some of the VP debates with Ralph Darden of The Jai Alai Savant. Back at his house, we saw his new comic books and hung out with his cat, Tamika Shackaford. Sarah Palin reminds me of a high school junior campaigning for student counsel president.

Played at a venue called Ronny's, an old biker bar with a garage for show space. A few of the employees and regular patrons of Ronny's seem mildly resentful of the kids who have shows there. Nonetheless, we saw a bunch of old friends, stayed with our friend Cully, and ate Costa Rican lunch the next afternoon with the kind folks of Flameshovel Records. Oatmeal milkshake! Food tour 2008!
