Also seen at Cafe Spiaggia the same evening was Mayor Richard Daley, dining with a group of friends. The Mayor kept warm with a Tuscan bean soup. No word on whether any words were exchanged, especially since the two would soon engage in a media war of words over the Daley administration's decision to close the lakefront airport Meigs Field.
Bistro 110 frequent diner Jerry Springer was spotted having lunch at the French restaurant last week, but without any company. Jerry sat solo at a corner table and enjoyed the house signature French Onion Soup, Beet & Chicken salad and a Coke. He was reading "Speech-Less", the new book by Matt Latimer, the former speech writer for the Bush administration.
Bull’s point guard Derrick Rose came into Market this past weekend with 2 guys and a lady. He ordered two servings of Popcorn Shrimp, Cotton Candy for dessert, and washed it down with a Grape Kool Aid specialty cocktail while watching Sportscenter on the bar’s TV’s. Somehow that combo makes us nauseous, but nothing pays homage to childhood like grape Kool Aid, so props to the boy wonder for keepin’ it real.
