Rick Bayless' restaurants in Chicago are my favorite Mexican places. My first taste of authentic Mexican was when Bayless and his wife were at Lopez y Gonzalez in Cleveland Hts. My friend who had gone to American HS in Mexico City vouched for the food.

Veering slightly, I also love New Mexico food. Was lucky enough to hit Santa Cafe back when Ming Tsai was there, and Coyote Cafe under Mark Miller. Chile harvest should be on right now - yum!

Try the Port Course. Great views of downtown, Skyway Bridge, Lake Calumet.

The Harborside courses are lots of fun. Who doesn't like windy, links-style golf the week after The Open? Ruffled Feathers in Lemont is nice, too.

Thanks a ton, RB4. I might try to revive the articles, since I didn't cover the last half of the year the first time. We'll see.

Yes, that was sarcasm. There's a reason the original article called JLP Morisette's "international debut".

Honestly, it was nit-picking like that, and "this music sucks" posts that made me quit writing the series. I was researching and writing on pretty much a same-day basis, and trying to choose relevant topics including those outside my own tastes and foreknowledge, so I'm sure there were a few errata. And, obviously not all of the music appealed to everyone, even me. It's gratifying that you and others find the articles worth re-visiting, and thanks mainly to Hove for the bumps!

"With the stage name of Alanis, she signed a record deal with the Canadian division of MCA Records for two dance-pop albums. The label released her self-titled album (1991), which was certified platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association and earned her a Juno Award,and Now Is the Time (1992), which was less successful. These albums, released only in Canada, are often not mentioned in the media, which tend to consider Jagged Little Pill (1995), released on Maverick Records, as her debut album."

I am so sorry.

Just checking in and found this great article and thread. Worthy subject, Gen'l.

This one goes on the list, IMHO.
