    A certain MPer is a XOCO fan, I've been having a lot of tortas from my local Mexican taquerias, it has been awhile since I've had a XOCO torta, so time to compare.

    Time: 11:45AM (I'll prob be early to get a table as it gets busy)

    All are welcome to attend, who is interested?

    How far is that from the airport? I may be doing a long layover during that timeframe.

    I'll be driving from the ORD area as I live close by to ORD, so would be able to pick you up & drop you off.

    Start a conversation with me & we can discuss your logistics to see it will work. FWIW I have picked up MPers at ORD, gone & dined (or sometimes drank) in the city, then headed back to ORD. One particular MPer was dropped back off at ORD ~4:45AM, just in time for his 6am flight back to LA (do I need to state that he slept very well on the flight??!!:D)

    Willie picked me up near ORD for the Russian dinner earlier this year, really appreciated.

    This one looks great but won't be going.

    Person from Singapore gets the award for traveling the longest distance!

    Delicious lunch! Glad so many could come out today.

    I did like the Aztec chocolate drink. In December when it gets very chilly, we'll have to have a hot chocolate Do at a place I know where they claim the put the equivalent of 6 truffles worth of chocolate in their cup of hot chocolate, pure decadence !
