Rahm Emanuel visted Chatham

UPDATE 11:13 AM - CAPCC Blog reports that Emanuel was at Izola's this morning!

Just saw this from AP News.
Emanuel, who stepped down as White House chief of staff last week to run for mayor of Chicago, appeared at an elevated train station on Roosevelt Road on the city's near South Side, shaking hands with commuters.

Emanuel plans at least two other stops Monday morning — in the city's Chatham neighborhood and then in the Pilsen neighborhood.

In a video released over the weekend, he said he would embark on a "Tell It Like It Is" listening tour of the city.

Sorry we didn't weren't able to get any specific info (i.e. the restaurant...guessing it's either Izola's or Army & Lou's..maybe Captain's Hard Time Dining), or ahead of time (in case you were interested).

We would love any photos, comments or stories about all mayor candidates having a big event here.


  1. He had breakfast at Izola's. It appears he met with some of the old Daley Democrats who frequent Izola's

  2. To bad that Izola allowed her place to used for a person that has not interest in the empowerment of black folks.
    It is a slap in the face of the memory of Gene Sawyer, Eugene Pincham, Harold Washington and all the other black political leaders.
