If Memory serves me right, PJ had during Bears games 5 hot dogs & fries for 5 dollars delivered.

Loved PJs. Imagine if he delivered to HUSKIE Stadium during the great hot dog decade long drought of 2013 - 2022. (This year was the tenth anniversary) He could ride in on his cart pulled by a pack of HUSKIES to save the day. The stadium would erupt with cheers. COGS

Are you kidding? That sounds amazing. We had the hot dog vendor on Normal near the student center. He was from the Rapp family that owned the DELICIOUS Rapp Daddy's fried chicken on Lincoln highway. No food carts on Greek Row tho. All we had was nasty ass Burritoville, while good drunk, it was disgusting sober. Greek Row used to be so lively when I went there. $5 all you can drink red solo cups.

The Great Hot Dog drought of 2013-2022. That is funny!
Actually the end should be open-ended because we do not know if there will a plentiful crop of hot dogs for the 2022-2024 sports season.

PJ's had a very good Chicago dog and filled that hot dog craving when you were missing Chicago area food.
Now beefs in DeKalb in the 80's was a different story.
Did PJ's have beefs?

What we need in DeKalb is for Rutt's Hut from New Jersey to open a hot dog place. Rutt's is famous as the home of the "ripper" - a plump hot dog that is deep fried until the casing rips open. Now THAT'S a hot dog!

Yes, you are unfortunately correct. But, please cut me some slack. I've had to use a magnifying mirror for years.

I don't think it was age, I think it looked like that from excessive self abuse.
