The Villages Florida
I ate at Luigino's a few years ago during a visit to TV. That would be a great location for Portillo's. Portillo's chain is now owned by Berkshire Partners, a private equity group based in Boston (sale took place in 2014 for reportedly almost $1 billion).

The Portillo's near my former workplace is Schaumburg does a huge business at lunch time with all of the offices nearby. Quite a well run business.

I will be visiting TV from December 31 to January 2. For a fee, I can hand deliver an Aurelio's pizza to your home.

Yes, I bring some Chicago snow with me every time I visit The Villages, and leave the snow in various locations in TV. I know some former Chicago residents now living in TV miss the snow. . . not.

Looks to be an embellishment of the Coors Light Ads on the bus stop shelter.


The older lady pulling her belongings would fit right in at the former Luiginos corner.

I am off topic again...please note the blue and white CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) bus sign (looks to be for the 22 Clark Street bus) next to the bus shelter and the banner on the green light pole for Chicago's Adler Planetarium.

How Much for a large regular crust sausage and green pepper?

(In the mid 70's I had a GF who came back to the Bay Area with a Chicago Pizza after her monthly meetings in Chgo)

Actually you can buy Lou Malnati's pizza and have it shipped nationwide. Pizzas available:
Cheese, Sausage, Pepperoni, Veggie (Mushroom, Onion & Green Pepper), Spinach, and Crustless (Gluten Free made with a lean sausage base). Each pizza is 9" and serves two adults. - See more at: Ship Chicago Food & Gifts Nationwide | Tastes of Chicago

Now I'm hungry...
