Happy Anniversary, Chicago Diner!

Lakeview vegetarian gem Chicago Diner boasts that it's been "meat free" since opening in 1983.
They're celebrating 27 years in business with a weeklong event where prices will be rolled back to original prices.
Today through Friday choose from a number of sandwiches for $4.95 and drinks for $3. For example, Monday's special is the diner burger paired with Peak Organic beer; Wednesday get ready for a black bean burger paired with Three Floyds; and Friday's deal is Philly "steak" and Cliff Climber wine.
If you're craving for more than a sandwich—and since its Meatball Mondays—of course we're going to rec the pasta , which comes with baked seitan "meatballs." It's topped with a zesty tomato basil sauce and comes with a slice of garlic bread. $11.99.
Yet another reason why the The Meatball Shop needs to come to Chicago!
