President-In-Less-Than-24-Hours Barack Obama appeared on a local Chicago restaurant review program, Check, Please!, back in 2001 when he was a mere state senator. The show airs on our local PBS affiliate, WTTW and consists of three Chicagoans selecting, patronizing, and then reviewing area restaurants. Obama chose Dixie Kitchen & Bait Shop, a Cajun eatery in Hyde Park on Chicago’s South Side. I imagine they are seeing some increased business about now, and having tried their pulled pork I can say it is well deserved.
