Bob's Photobooth Bus Cruiz'n Chi-Town - 6/16/18

Bob's Photobooth Bus Spicoli hit the town Saturday night cruiz’n to a couple of places I have not tried. 

First stop was for some tasty tacos at CTA (Chicago Taco Authority) at 4219 W. Irving Park, Chicago. This place has the coolest decor with incredible attention to detail. Check out the mural of CTA train on the wall. They attached an old-style chain across the back door to the wall!

Walked into smiling faces, excellent service and best of all some awesome tacos. Chowed down on the Al Pastor, Steak and Fish Tacos. All excellent. Throw in a mandarin orange soda and all is right with the world. My wife and I give it 5 stars on the Spicoli chart. Our highest rating!

Met the owner, Jose, who saw the bus and loved it. Told me the front looked like an old CTA train car. It does a little! Below are some pics of Jose and his place. It’s a newer business so let's support our local entrepreneurs - especially ones dishing out great food. 

Next stop was across the street at Eris Brewery and Cider House at 4240 W. Irving Park Rd. Chicago, Il. 60641. Enjoyed a few with my wife and then checked out the interior. You have to see it to believe it. The place is beyond what you can imagine. Definitely, no expense spared but better yet done to perfection.  We did not eat there but will be back to try out the food. See below pic of Spicoli hanging out by the patio and some interior shots. Well done, Eris!



It’s All About Me, Me, Me, Me, Me.  Who the heck is the Bob behind and do you really want to know?  Anyway………

My name is Bob and I’ve been told I joke too much.  The naming of my website came from my trip to Nepal when after the first couple of days trekking to the Mt. Everest Base Camp our Sherpa Guide, Limbu, confided in my friend the following; “Bob is a nice guy but Bob Joke Too Much”.  Once he started to understand and/or tolerate my sarcasm (maybe 21 days in) we became good friends and supporters of his guide business.  So it all worked out but now my friend tends to remind me of that quote when I go too far with my satirical humor.

Anyway......I was born a poor black child of a sharecropper on the front porch of my home in the Mississippi Delta.  Not buying that?  OK, just a middle class, blue collar kid in an all-white, Irish Catholic neighborhood boarding the Southwest side of Chicago.  One of seven children raised by a normal Mom and Dad who obviously believed the Catholic Church recommendation of the Rhythm Method as an effective form of contraception.  My Wife, two boys and I live in Chicago.

Observing and experiencing life since 1963.  I have been extensively educated at Father Mulsoff Industrial School for Incorrigible Kid’s, Brother Duffin High School for Vulnerable Boys and The Institute for Applied Nonsense.  Note that even though the 1st two schools had known molesters as “teachers”, I was never once approached for molestation in spite of the fact that I was very susceptible, small, skinny and weak boy.  Due to current litigation against the Catholic Church for discrimination, that’s all I can say on the subject.

I have no qualifications for being a writer.  However, this will not stop me from publishing many of the yearly 17,000 thoughts that pop into my mind on the website and anywhere else. I will cover topics including parenting, gun control, donkeys, idiots, politics, religion, racism and any other controversial subjects I find worthy in an attempt of provoking laughs, stimulating deep thinking and/or just pissing off the politically correct with my satirical prose.  My thoughts and opinions will appear on my website and all other social media outlets no matter how much a waste of time until I die.
