One last-minute post for the day:
Sadly, tomorrow, April 28th, is the last day of service for the Ohio House Coffee Shop at LaSalle and Ohio.
After 53 years in business, the owner/operator Cathy Roquemore, is closing shop as the owner of the Ohio House Motel did not renew her lease, making way for a corporate-owned establishment.
When I first started coming to Chicago almost 15 years ago, The Ohio House was one of the first restaurants where I ever had a meal, since my soon-to-be better-half worked around the corner. I recall the “Deuces Wild” only costing $2.50 at the time.
If you live in the neighborhood or want to make the trek to River North tomorrow, stop in for brunch and say goodbye.
