    At the recent LTH Dinner outing at Burt's, a certain member blurted out "where's the next outing" even before the pizza arrived. Geez!

    I had Balkan Taste on my radar for the next LTHNLG outing. Upon further review, I felt this might work better as a dinner outing. So there. You can read about Balkan Taste here - viewtopic.php?p=506174

    Please join us on the 21st for some Cevapi, Gibanica, Sarma and other Serbian delicacies. As always, bring a friend.

    Sorry, cannot make it this time, gang, work. And earlier in the day one of my bands is performing on the WGN Midday Fix--The Soul Commitments & Van Morrison tribute.

    Next time, hopefully!

    A shameless, but very cool plug! Looking forward to seeing you on the tube.

    ARRGGHHHH, amazing bad timing (for me). The one night this week I have something planned and at a place so close to my home. Seriously bummed.

    Hope to see more dinners.

    I did absolutely nothing and it was everything I thought it could be.

    Found your group here: https://wgntv.com/2019/05/21/midday-fix ... n-tribute/

    Are you the keyboardist on the right wing?

    At least two goals this summer: learn to grill fish and see one of your gigs.

    Five of us had a great dinner last night. Cheese and meat pies, assorted salads, and meaty delights. Moussaka too!

    Since the original discussion that led to this dinner was about both Balkan Taste and Istanbul Market (in the same strip mall), I feel justified in mentioning that prior to our very fun and delicious dinner at Balkan Taste, I popped into Istanbul Market and bought a few things. Among those things was Merve Yogurt -- sade/plain. This is now officially my favorite yogurt.

    But very much enjoyed eating at Balkan Taste, especially with a group so we could try more things. We had both cheese "pie" and meat "pie," liking both but a few people saying they preferred the cheese. Enjoyed the day's special: moussaka. I already knew I liked the cevapcici and smoked pork chop, so pleased to have those, and I'd probably go if the only thing they offered was their salads (especially the cabbage salad) -- and we tried all four on offer. Very comforting food -- a little familiar but different enough. And, of course, the company at any LTH outing is always a highlight.
