Say it ain't so!

I was strolling through the Gold Coast this afternoon only to find out that my secret summertime spot Johnny Rockets (901 N. Rush St.) closed six days ago.

A sign posted in the window simply said: "Thanks for all your patronage for over 20 years . . ." So sad. Now where will we go for old-school malts, shakes, fries and burgers after spending all our money in places like Bloomies, Barney's and Banana Republic? Truly an end of an era in the Gold Coast . . .
