So long, Hot Doug’s! It’s been fun.
You were my first Chicago story (I wrote about you for Southwest Airline’s Spirit Magazine, before I’d even moved to Chicago).
You were my second piece in the Washington Post.
And you were many a sausage meal along the way. (I still contend that your regular fries are better than the duck fat fries).
We’ll await your second coming.
(Might I suggest starting a marketing company?)
As they say in Germany, Alles hat ein ende nur die Wurst hat zwei. (Everything has an end. Only the sausage has two.)
