The Drive-in Gods Smile Upon Chicagoland

Hallelujah, and thank God Almighty! Sonic is finally arriving to Chicagoland. No more suffering through the bitter irony of Chicagoan TJ Jagodowski telling me how great their shakes are when I couldn’t drive to get one. I KNOW, TJ. STOP TAUNTING ME! Gosh.

If I drove to Wheaton this weekend to get window sashes, I can drive to Aurora to get a limeade. Mmm, limeade… [Trib]

Yum!

A Sonic just opened not too far from my parents' house in Pennsylvania. I ate there on Saturday, after scoring a Coach bag for $65 at the "factory store" (aka outlet). Best day ever! Enjoy!

omg, a $65 coach bag? that's even better than a sonic.

Oh, man. I was so thrilled when I realized there were Sonics in the Greater Cincinnati area-- mind you, they're a drive for me, but by god a cherry limeade is worth it. Mmm. Limeade.

Julie, Same for me! The Landen/Fields Ertel Sonic has been my only experience with a Sonic ever, but it's been such a good one. I'm pretty sure half of what makes a cherry limeade so amazing is the little ice cubes. They're almost like slushies. Mm... slushies...

I used to go to the one in Middletown, and I work in Mason (live downtown-- the commute is a PITA), so obviously I need to get some more sonic love. They are so close to slushies. Mmm.

My first experience with Sonic was in Tennessee. I was dating a boy who went to UT and grew up in Nashville, and he took me to Sonic for the first time. I still think of him every time I go. Good thing we're still friends!
