It is hard to imagine that Oak Park without Tasty Dog. I can’t even remember a time when Tasty Dog did not exist. I remember going there afer school many times. One of my most vivid memories is of seeing John Mahoney there when I was in junior high.
But on August 3rd in Cook County Court the Village of Oak Park announced it had given Tasty Dog notice that it was to vacate the village-owned building they currently reside. Tasty Dog owes more than $40,000 to the Village of Oak Park and it appears the end is near.
With only 4 days left I think I am going to go to Tasty Dog and get some cheese fries and reminisce about growing up in Oak Park. If you are in the area I would recommend doing the same.
