I just saw this place on CBS’s “Hungry Hound” and I was intrigued to go here. I had a chicken shawarma sandwich and it was perfect, the chicken was marinated just right and the hummus was smooth and flavorful. The pita bread was fresh and fluffy (sometimes restaurants serve them stale). The building’s interesting because it was obviously an old Taco Bell. I’m really glad I found this place (thanks CBS) because there’s not too many Middle Eastern cuisine options here in the suburbs.
My Naperville friend is taking comedy classes at Second City in Chicago and wanted to see what this place was about. It’s a small company that specializes in improv with a “PG-13” rating. The building itself is really cool. It’s like a museum of old comedy memorabilia: posters, puppets, props, write-ups, etc. There’s even a bar with small tables. The shows themselves are based off Drew Carey’s “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and they last about one and ½ hours.
This was the first “Bed & Breakfast” I ever stayed at. It was interesting but I kinda felt like I was staying at my grandmother’s (I’m 21). I understand now why this is appealing to older couples or newly weds. My parents (who I was traveling with) really liked the home for its history and the innkeeper would kindly tell them stories. All the amenities – whirlpool bath, air condition, fluffy towels. They even give you robes that have “HH” stitched in them which was cute.
