    Decent liquor selection (Koval, Hendricks, etc.), 9:30 on a weeknight the place is silent. Perfect shopping time if you can swing it.

    In late summer, you simply must buy the boxed peaches. They are the sweetest, most wonderful peaches you will ever eat! Be sure to come friday or early Saturday before they run out!

    It's NorthCenter, NOT Wrigley, so they do not need to have cold beer! Their lot IS crazy, so walk it, bus it, or take "el" to Addison Brown Line stop. Pet Supplies Plus right next door! Perfect!

    The samples they offer at the back of the store always give me good ideas for new things to make...or at least you get a snack while you shop

    If you can't make it there in the afternoons on a weekday, go right when they open at 8am on Saturday. It will save you a lot of headaches. Read more
