Soldiers Field Men’s Room Conversation Made Me feel like a Turkey!

As we entered the Men’s Room and took our place in line (lined several men deep at each urinal), I told Neal about how I had tried making a trial turkey a few days earlier – my first turkey. “I made a mistake,” I told Neal. “Thinking that any time a recipe calls for the oven to be set above 400 degrees means we use the broiler, I accidentally broiled the bird instead of bake it.” Neal looked at me in amazement. “Well, that’s a first. Cook a turkey by zinging it with intense heat from the top.” He giggled.

You Can’t Pete - I mean Beat - this Place for Great Local Breakfast

love Pete’s because the two owners, Pete Frustis and his father, Teddy are wonderful people, as is his staff. The folks at Pete’s Grill take customer satisfaction to a great level, found only in owner/family owned restaurants – and they offer great respect and service to everyone who passes through its doors – whether a commuter fresh of a bus, local residents, or, in my case, exhausted local guy walking in, sweat stained shirt, fresh from a morning work out down the street – looking to replace calories I just took off minutes ago. Pete’s offers reliable breakfast food (and lunch as well), and the faire at Pete’s is always fresh and good.

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
