My parents are going on Friday.  I'll let you know what they say after they tell me what they say.  Stay tuned.

This guy from  the comments--

I can't wait to check it out as I work a couple of blocks away. However, I can appreciate the sentiments of those who feel that the south suburbs get short shrift. I grew up taking the train up north to the Randolph and Michigan metra station, and watched that station languish for years (remember? That was the last metra station to get rid of turnstiles). Even though it is remodeled, it is still nothing compared to Northwestern Train Station. I've lived on the northside of the city for 20 years, but still regularly take the train down to the south suburbs and notice the difference clearly.

probably also complains about all the attention the Cubs get.  Just sayin'.

I think he's more of the appendix of Desipio.  Yeah, it's here and you're vaguely aware of it, but only if reminded.  The only time anyone notices it is when it ruptures (on Weebs in the video game thread).  Beyond that, though, it's basically useless and offers no redeeming value.

Went on Saturday.  Still a bit of teething problems, and not all of the booths are open yet (including the frites and beer stand), but lots of good stuff there.  Not cheap though (about 7-10 bucks for the various sammwich options), but a lot of good choices.  Think most everything should be open by the 15th.

And then we will just give them a condescending pat on the head and say "that's nice fellows, but you see, this is the CUBS.  Which mean it actually matters now."

I checked out the Vietnamese stand and got a Banh Mi. Delicious, but not very large. They didn't have pho yet, but should be up with that in a week or so.

Definitely what Hawk said - not everything is in place yet and it is pricey. Pretty neat place though. One of the butchers had a blonde girl working there with massive hogans. That was worth the trip alone.
