Hey Debbers, I live in Carlinville, IL about 70 miles NE of the city. I fly to and from Clevelamd each week for work so I'm at the airport nearly every Friday and Sunday or Monday. :-)
I, too, LOVE the Hill! Just the Italian grocery markets are enough for sheer pleasure. Ah Cunetto's or Charlie Gitto's - true delights and you're right, no Barilla Plus or whole wheat on The Hill.
