Greetings, folks. As you guessed from the topic title, I live in Chicago (go, Cubs, go). But I'm originally from Ky. (go, Cats), and I'm glad to see both locations well-represented at THP (and I'm glad that I can root for at least one winning team... Anthony Davis! What!?).

By the way, if any fellow Chicagoans (or non-Chicagoans familiar with the city) know of a good place to by fresh peppers—beyond the standard jalapenos and habaneros—please point a brother in the right direction. I finally started seeing some red bhuts at my local farmers' market late last summer/early fall, but that was, of course, short-lived.

Welcome from Chicago, although that might just be where I think I am when I've been drinking!
I'm too groggy to think!

Since you're a cubs fan I won't heckle you - clearly you've suffered enough.

So instead, :welcome: from a CA SF Giants Fan. Hey, if my SFG can survive Dusty Baker win it in my lifetime there's hope for you!
:D

Since several of those that I have visited in the past had other Mexican foods I might try them for peppers. Tony's Finer Foods.

At this time of year, I'd keep drinking till I thought I was in the Caribbean.

I sincerely appreciate the sympathy, but as an outsider looking in, you can only imagine the depths of my suffering. I'm a life-long fan, and it just gets worse every year. :banghead:

It is very nice to be reminded that at least one team survived Dusty Baker and went on to win it all. I doubt that all of your Baker-era pitchers survived, but you guys don't seem to hurt for pitching these days... so perhaps there's hope for our staff yet.

Thanks for that. According to Google, there's one not too far from my neighborhood. I'll be checking it out soon.

Being an enthusiastic Yankee hater, I'm almost a Red Sox fan by default. If it weren't for the designated-hitter rule, I'd probably call myself a casual Red Sox fan.

Hey, Mulcahey! :welcome: from the Pacific Northwest!

Many thanks for the warm welcomes. It's nice to join a friendly forum.

Hello from the NW burbs. I was thinking of trying these places. I just haven't had time to get to them. Any fresh markets are going to have quality peppers over big chain grocers. (such as fresh market, joe capotoes, josephs fresh market, basically anything with fresh market) These places are ones I have googled for hours to find and just haven't had time to check them out. I'd have to catch a train in to the city and I haven't been able too yet.

Caribbean Linstead Market
492-8220

Old World Market
5129 N Broadway
Between Winona St. and Carmen Ave.
773-989-4440

Rodgers Park Fruit Market
7401 N Clark St
Between Birchwood Ave and Rodgers Ave
773-262-3663

Good luck and keep me posted if you do get to check one of these or all of them out. Welcome to THP

Hmm...Jason Schmidt (arm = toast) Beck (Dusty ruined him too) - the rest retired since (Reuter, Russ Ortiz). Livan Hernandez was/is a horse, and so was Ortiz now that I think of it, but I believe the entire pitching staff is new since Dusty left - no one left on Dusty's staff on the 2010 Giants WS team.

We'll see if boy wonder can help your Cubbies - I'm a little skeptical since the BoSox had a ton of talent when Epstein took over - and he kinda ran 'em into the ground before leaving for Chicago. It'll be interesting to see what happens.

Regardless it's good to see a fellow baseball/pepper fan!
:cheers:

Caribbean Linstead Market


Unfortunately, according to Yelp, it looks like Caribbean Linstead Market is out of business.

The other two look very promising. Many, many thanks. If I get a chance to get to one or both over the weekend, I'll let you know.

No doubt Epstein inherited a much stronger organization with the Red Sox than he has with the Cubs. And that fact has definitely tempered my joy at acquiring Epstein... but it's tempered it from screaming-crying-teenaged-girl-watching-The-Beatles down to damned-happy-to-have-him.

The Red Sox won 90 games last year, which by their recent standards is definitely a disappointment. From the Cubs' fan's perspective... well, let's just say that, if that's what being run into the ground looks like, it's still a big improvement over where we've been lately. :cry:

Regardless it's good to see a fellow baseball/pepper fan!


Word. If you also like '80s references, craft beer, and vintage guitars and tube amps, then we should start a club.

My brother from another mother!

1. I was born in '70, so 80's references are my lifeblood.

2. Check the "Guitar Porn" topic to see my vintage Gibson & Martin guitars

3. You'll also see my Fender Blues DeVille 100 W amp.

:dance:

Oh, and I have friends in Chicago, so I'm already sure you're good people.
:D

1. Heh. Same.

2 and 3. That's a very nice collection.

I would kick many babies and grandmothers in their teeth to have AlabamaJack's D-45.
