Julie & Blake

Before they met in person, the universe was trying to tell Julie and Blake they were meant to be together.

In late June of 2015, Julie & Blake matched through a dating app. A few days later, one of Julie’s childhood friends told her she had a guy she wanted to set her up with. She began describing him – Nice, Jewish, Lawyer….named Blake!

After making the connection, Julie and Blake continued talking, but he still hadn’t made a move, so Julie took her father’s advice to grab the bull by the horns and asked Blake out.

After the first date on 7/15, a water taxi ride to Chinatown, they both knew this was the start of something special.

And here they are now, sharing their wedding plans with you!

Mr. Beef

666 N. OrleansChicago, ILIn addition to Deep Dish Pizza and the Chicago-Style Hot Dog, the Italian Beef Sandwich was invented in Chicago in the 1930s. An Italian beef is a sandwich of thin slices of seasoned roast beef, dripping with meat juices, on a dense, long Italian-style roll. The bread itself is often dipped (or double-dipped) into the juices the meat is cooked in, and the sandwich is typically topped off with Chicago-style giardiniera (called “hot”) or sauteed, green Italian sweet peppers (called “sweet”).

Our favorite beef sandwich is at Mr. Beef on Orleans, so grab a sandwich and take the stance to enjoy. Other quality versions can be found at Portillo’s and Al’s.
