On a beautiful sunny day in Chicago, a bunch of Vters met in Evanston for pizza at Carmen's and a wonderful tour of the downtown area and Northwestern campus led by VT's very own Katja (pedersdottir). Graciously, she did not accept any tips at the end :-)

    Turns out I can only write one comment? Suggestions: - Tapas Barcelona (try the choc-covered ice cream stuffed pear!) - Walker Bros. Pancake House - Davis St Fish Market - Mt. Everest

    Glad you had a nice visit with other VT members. Don't tell anyone, but I was actually born and grew up in Evanston, though I don't always admit it. I guess it's a nice enough place, for people who like that sort of thing.

    Nice job on Evanston. I was there in the late 50's & early 60's but I never wrote on the rock. I swear. I'll bet a lot has changed since my grad school days.

    What's EI? I think of Easter Island, but I'm sure it's not that in this case ;-)

    Great page on one of my favorite suburbs, and for a brief time, my former home town!

    Excellent write-up on Carmen's and I agree. The two tips on transport are quite helpful. Putting Evanston on the VT map!

    OK I know you want to 'get down with my homies'...but is the 'yo' really necessary?.. Oh well, all roads lead to the enchanting lakefront. :-))
