    Interesting to see LTH mentioned in the Tribune today, as a source for "secret" dining. I never knew we operated in such secrecy.

    It's interesting that an entire evening of taking notes, recording people's names, identifying dishes, and interviewing cooks and hostess ended up being one short paragraph! Always frustrating for a writer, I know.

    And at the Indonesian event, Moncia said it was about alternative dining options, so I wonder if her editor spun the title to make it sound sneakier.

    Anyway, she did more work that evening than can easily be deduced from the comment.

    G Wiv wrote:Mike Sula (m'th'su) gets multiple mentions in Rick Kogan's Chicago Tribune article Freedom Fryers about Harold's Fried Chicken for his "definitive history of the operation"

    I'm in awe of Mike Sula's Harold's by the Numbers (his finest work!) and it was great to see Harold's (and Mike) get some attention from Rick Kogan in the Tribune. A minor error concerning the location of the first Harold's Chicken Shack found its way into both articles and I'd like to take a moment to correct it.

    In the Reader, Mike Sula wrote:Gene Rosen, who owned a poultry shop down the street, offered him a few birds to fry up for the guys, and they liked the results so much that Pierce opened a take-out joint at 47th and Greenwood, with Rosen supplying the chickens. That was the original Harold’s Chicken Shack.

    In the Tribune, Rick Kogan wrote:His first fried chicken restaurant, at 47th Street and Greenwood Avenue, was a huge success and in time he franchised his name and secret recipe and shacks began to pop up in converted spaces across the South Side.

    As briefly noted in Guide to East 47th Street, the original Harold's Chicken Shack was at 1235 E 47th, between Woodlawn and Kimbark (though Kimbark doesn't quite extend to 47th). This was almost directly across from Gill's Liquors, a perfect location because a jug of Won't-Go-Flat was the ideal accompaniment to a batch of Harold's. Back then you could even purchase your beer from a drive-up window.

    It was about a decade later in 1962 that, due to urban renewal, Chicken Shack #1 moved a short distance to 1106 E 47th, almost at the corner of Greenwood. Meanwhile Harold's second shop had opened at 6419 S Cottage Grove Av where it still stands.

    One last piece of Harold's history: if you look at the pictures at the end of the East 47th Street post linked to above, you'll see a shot of the abandoned Lee's Chicken Shack at 536 E 47th. Before Lee took over it was Harold's #4, opened in 1965.

    Nicest thing anyone's ever said about LTHForum (and MikeG's publicity dream continues!) from the Chicagoist:

    As Alinea's Grant Achatz told us in our interview with him in March, he still recognizes LTHForum and similar sites as "the voice of the guest," but he feels that the dining sites are more often used as "microphones (for people) to hear themselves."

    He has a point. Where we're concerned, while forums like Yelp and Menuism allow everyone to be a critic, LTHForum teaches it members - and by extension, its readers - how to be a critic. Although we have our reservations with the forum, we still find it to be one of the most invaluable resources for dining and culinary news in the city. And that Coalfire thread has gotten us stoked to check the place out for ourselves[emphasis added].

    HI,

    After checking NPR's All Things Considered website for weeks, it finally aired the John T. Edge and Bruce Kraig segment on Mother-in-Law.

    While mentions of Rene G's contribution as well as LTHforum were left on the cutting room floor. We know many first learned of the Mother-in-Law via Rene G's post on this very forum.

    Many thanks Rene G for your efforts.

    Regards,

    It's very unfair that ReneG did not get credit for excavating this dog stand classic, but my guess is that Edge and Kraig mentioned him and some producer/editor probably felt that citing sources would complicate the three-minute bite.

    John T Edge in a personal e-mail said it may happen, which I considered fair warning. At least he snuck in a mention of LTHforum when blogging about Calumet Fisheries.

    It happens all the time when other media sources refer to tips here as 'internet buzz' or something else. We've all felt a little stung by these things. I am not saying it is acceptable, it simply happens.

    Maybe it's the curse of the Mother-In-Law archetype. Some things just always seem to go wrong. But they disappoint us all the same. I'm sorry this happened.

    Hi,

    The cicada segment was in the first half hour of GMA, which is the equivalent of the Tribune front page and not the bottom fold.

    I took video clips of the crew taping the cicada munchers. For two plus hours of time, those seconds seem so precious. It will be on youtube later today.
