Road Trip: Part 14

One more party to go, this time just Hubster's immediate family. And again, we moved from one house to another, this time stopping to pick up some gyros meat and some Italian beef to take home.

And yes, I do make my own, but it's been a long time since I've had the authentic Chicago versions, so I wanted to pick some up as samples to compare to my versions.

We stopped at Central Gyros in Chicago for the gyros, and we got the beef from Jay's Beef in Schiller Park. Here's a nice shot of the gyros....

And then we had a little time to hang around before it was time to head for the party. I picked up my mother-in-law for a quick spin to a Polish grocery store to see if she wanted anything and to help translate labels.

Then I took a quick detour to see what the demolition of my old grade school looked like.

Oh my.

And then it was off to Hubster's sister's house where we were treated to another lovely buffet. This is a much happier photo.

Of course, it didn't look like this for long...they're a hungry crowd.
