Rusty and I walked around Millennium and Grant Park on our last day in Chicago. Cool bean. Then met up with Ronnie Z for lunch at Coco’s Famous Deep Fried Lobster. I was excited to check it out, because it said it was famous.

I asked for water, but no water. Not even bottled water. I looked at the choices. Only sodas and Arizona Ice Teas. I was so confused. How does a restaurant not have any water …even if I wanted to pay for it? I almost wanted to say something but then saw the sign, “There will be $5 Charge for Whining” on the wall. I suppose it’s supposed to be humorous, but there’s probably a reason why it’s up there.

I ordered the Deep Fried Lobster ($11.25 for the small). Came with fries and a small cup of cole slaw, ketchup and hot sauce. It was pretty good, but I don’t know if it’s better than non-deep fried lobster. The deep frying is pretty much killing it, right? It’s not much different than fried fish chunks, except for the slight shellfish flavor.

Ronnie Z got a small white rice for $2.25. I don’t know who only orders just a small white rice, but this is how it looks at Coco’s (see below). He had one bite and then we left.

All I can think about is “no water.” And according to the signs out front, “No Public Restrooms” and “No Loitering.” …Alright, I’ll stop whining.

    Why spend time in searching for sample welcome speeches online when you can easily write one yourself.
    The most commonly-used federal tax exemption used for non-profit corporations
    is in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code,
    which is why most non-profit organizations are referred to as “501(c)(3)” companies.
    A team name needs to be as short and snappy as possible.

    There are also direct-injected silicone logo treatments on both the front and back that will out-last the competition. Your metabolism isn’t
    identical when you were younger which is probably slowing down. Now
    there is hope that you will see Insomniac on the Playstation 4.
