Back in the early 80's I lived very close to Sunset & Cresent Heights.
I've been living here since about '84. That is a good movie theater, BTW.

I see you're from Galena, IL. There's one in or around Northbrook, which is a suburb just north of Chicago. I've been there. That's what -- about 150 miles? A fair stretch, but less than a day's drive.

I stumbled across this thread just now, and I just gotta say that you folks who have a TJ's in your town should consider yourselves fortunate. I lived in SoCal for about 24 years, and just took TJ's for granted after a while. There isn't a single one in the entire state of Texas. And I miss them. I visited my daughter in Chicago this past summer and ran across the TJ's up there, and brought some of my favorite goodies home with me. But all too soon it'll be all gone and I'll be TJ-less once more.

I got kinda ticked about this, so I visited their website and asked them just what their problem was with Texas. I mean, Leawood, Kansas? If they can find their way to put a location into a tiny community like Leawood, KS, what's the problem with a booming metropolis like Houston? There's nothing like TJ's here, and it would be a hit, guaranteed.

If you were to ask my wife what she misses most about TJ's, she'd probably say their New York-style cheesecake. Ask me, it would probably be their Bay Blend coffee. Man I love that stuff. Makes great espresso too.

150 miles is a long way in some places, not like in Texas and Montana.

Thanks, cooltouch...I'm going to try the Bay Blend Coffee next time.

I served their Balsamic Glazed Grilled Sweet Onions with Alaskan Baked Salmon and asparagus and they were a big hit...HUGE!

The onions sound really good. I'm assuming they were already prepared. I'm looking for recipes/uses for Balsamic vinegar. Guess I'll start a new thread.

See, you've inspired me again.

I think I prefer Johnsonville Hot Italian sausages over Trader Joes's.

I like the prosciutto and the dried mangos.
