Right, it's professors, doctors, lawyers, teachers, anybody with letters after their name.

You left out Kafein. It's a coffee and dessert shop, with dim lighting and quirky decor. Their pastries were good; their sandwiches were too dry. Back when I was college-age, it was super-trendy in my neck of the woods; I used to go there all the time. But I barely hear of it anymore. It's still open, though.

Too many to name them all really. I love Evanston eateries.

well earned rep as the "Dining Capital of the North Shore"

Something to celebrate with a glass of wine and a plate piled high with Fanny's spaghetti, but sadly that isn't an option.

And speaking of food.....

question is, does Ryan Field get an edge up on tailgating over every other Big Ten stadium due to the easy availability of Mustard's Last Stand' Chicago favorites right next door?

As said previously, there is more common with Ivy League schools and NU 'tailgaters' than any of the rest of the Big10, for that matter the picnic-basket toting folks who go to Ravinia events are more "into" the experience that NU "fans"...

No. Not in the slightest. Tailgating at Ryan is mediocre, especially compared to many other Big10 schools I've tailgated (Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa...)

Kafein is quirky with a good atmosphere, for certain, but their coffee is Good milkshakes, though.

LOL

I agree. But all types of ‘coffee’ serve a purpose, arguably.
