Matt Higgins: I remember that motorcycle shop on Eastgate!

You could get chicken and at the same time live life on the edge in the same place. The Grand location across from the Vet's Hospital provides the same "excitement", but without the indoor seating and odor coming from the bathroom.

I tended bar at Marcos Imbibery on the corner of Delmar and Eastgate. Mark then sold the bar that became Eli Burke. This was from the mid seventies thru the mid eighties. A friend had a M/C shop a couple of doors east on Delmar, then bought the Pratzels bakery on Eastgate when they moved. Several of us M/C club members had apts. on Eastgate. The neighborhood was on its way down, becoming ghetto-ized, so we all got out. Glad to see the resurgence now.

Man, that place has been there forever! When I was a kid (I'm 41 now) my dad and uncle owned a bar and a liquor store on Delmar and Eastgate called City Limits, and I remember going to that Church's back then!

I know right? It was the cheapest food place in The Loop and like you say, it helped many of hungry Pageant goers waiting for tickets or a concert!
