National Chocolate Cake Day

Billy’s friend Ivan would drive out of his way to shop at the strip mall with the liquor store, the camera shop and the Guitar Center. “Less time shopping means more time to eat and drink,” he always said. Ivan also knew a few bars and restaurants in that area. Speaking of one-stop-shopping there are Portillo’s restaurants all over the place in the Chicago area. At Portillo’s you can get great Italian Sausage, Italian Beef and/or Combo Beef & Char Grilled Italian Sausage sandwiches so you might never have to leave. Pick the right Portillo’s and you can get also get beer. And a slice of Chocolate Cake or a slice of Chocolate Eclair Cake. Or an entire Chocolate cake since it’s National Chocolate Cake Day.
