Living in Chicago and having access to many White Castle restaurants has numbed me to how special White Castle sliders are to many people. Especially those that have moved to a non-White Castle area.
My first apartment was right behind a White Castle in Blue Island. Clean-up after a party meant collecting many White Castle bags & burger boxes. It was very convenient as I was "trying" to cook gourmet. I remember spending about $26.00 (a lot of money in the 70's) to make a crab curry dinner. I had never had curry before and did not like it at all. I gave it to the cats and they didn't even eat it! Thank goodness for that White Castle.
I couldn't believe reading an article about people that actually made "reservations" at many local White Castles for Valentine's Day dinners! Some of the restaurants were fully booked. There was a special section for the romantic dinners (nothing more romantic than the smell wafting around of those steamed onions & questionable patties). They set up with tablecloths, candles and music. And waiters & waitresses actually served diners at the table.
Unbelievable, and I just wish I would have known about it ahead of time. I would have most certainly been there.
