Long time ago

My mother was a waitress here back in the early sixties. When I was 15 I started washing dishes in the summer. It was always a fun place to work.

I'm now 61 and living in New Mexico. My wife and I recently took a road trip that took us to Chicago. We had dinner with my nephew and his girlfriend at Twin Anchors. I mentioned to our waitress that I had washed dishes there 45yrs ago.

As I was leaving I asked to buy a t-shirt. The hostess came out with shirt and I asked how much. She said no charge to employees. Very nice. PS food was excellent. 

First Date, 25 Years Later!

Back when my wife Liz lived in St. Michael's Parish in Old Town - and I still lived on the mighty South Side - we had our first date at Twin Anchors.

Tonight, May 30th, we're celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary by recreating that date at a little place on the corner of Sedgwick and Eugenie. The only question is, do we need reservations? (See you soon!)

My buddy Tony from Sanwa is my go to guy for all the scoop on the "where it's at" "scene a be seen" right? - so, hey, Tony - where does a guy go out in Chicago for a nice first date? - Carsons? The Drake? Bub City? ......no, no Danny - no, the Best place in the city......"have you heard of Twin Anchors?" - I reply, "twin what?" "Twin Anchors" - no clue. Alright, I'll take her there - I trust you Tony. "you're my boy Danny - have fun" My Italian gf is going to be treated right!

A couple cabs later that night after looking for Twin Anchors and finally walking into this teeny tiny little "speak easy" of sorts, the crowded, bustling city eatery was AMAZING! Forget the fact that we were squeezed in between two 4 tops, our table for two was right out of "Lady & the Tramp". And that my friends, set the stage for the rest of my life in the Second, third or forth city.....the Best City in this world. Chicago - WGN - cbot/cme - Twin Anchors. HOLY COW!
