Say good night, Gracie

Tonelli's Restaurant, a fixture on Waukegan and Shermer Roads (and which has employed two of my sisters over the years) is closing on Sunday after 51 years. The current generation of kids isn't interested in taking over, profit margins are slim, and value of the real estate it sits on is too high. They're going to move the Walgreens from Cherry and Meadow into a new building that will replace the restaurant, the liquor store and Chinese place next door, and I also believe the house just west on Shermer where Bryce's family's real estate office used to be, back when it was The Real Estate Shoppe. (It's now Re/Max North up on Dundee. I still have the ancient magnets on my fridge.)

I can't even count the number of birthdays and season completions celebrated there.
