October 6th Shannon’s Corner Butcher Shoppe & Deli opened in Downtown Lombard. It’s just north of the the Butcher shop of the same name. Let me tell you they have great selection of meats there and always give you the best advice on how to cook your choice cuts. I’m glad Shannon’s decided to open it’s 3rd or is it their 4th restaurant in Lombard. They have several other places around the area. It’s a nice little addition for lunch time in Lombard. One big bonus, I just found out you can find their Deli sandwiches at The Corner House too. Glad to see the downtown merchants working together. I had the Chicken Salad Sandwich, GREAT!
Just because you can find their deli fair at The Corner House you still need to stop by their regular store to take advantage of their full blown menu. Go in and give it a try. If you like their meat selection you’ll love their menu offerings. subs, salads, soups and sandwiches. I saw someone leave with a bowl of Chili, kind of sorry I missed that. Chili is one of my favorites, oh well maybe next time.
Actually for a smaller store they have plenty of seating and when spring comes I hope they have seating on the sidewalk.
Just look at all those meat choices so think of the sandwiches you can make!
Got a sweet tooth? They also have some fine looking deserts
On this day I had a hot dog and split pea soup. I’ll be back for more.
Welcome Shannon’s again to Lombard and help make them a long lasting fixture downtown. Hope you’ll find your new favorite dish there.
The other day I was thinking, I wonder how much those “LIVESTRONG” wristbands costs. Turns out, not so much. I made 10 for about $1.40, if you make 500 they are .18 cents. So I made some for Hello Lombard. Look they even have a PURPLE our town color!
I got these at Wrist-Band.com I know who would have thunk it? I’m throwing this out there as an idea for supporting Downtown Lombard. Sell them to raise money or give them away to help show support.
I’ll buy the first 500!
Now what do you think the wrist-band should say? Share your ideas here.
I have 8 more Hello Lombard wrist-bands if you want one just let me know I’ll be happy to send you one. Their rare only 10 of them have ever been made…
Had a fun in downtown Lombard last night, hanging out with some friends at Bonton, saw some hot rods at Lombard Cruise Nights and then some Gelato at The Corner House. Oh and I bumped into Bill Mueller our Village President, he was kind enough to let me take a picture with him!
If you haven’t picked up any steaks at Shannon’s lately you might have might have missed the new sign in the window two doors down.
Looking forward to having a new place to eat in Downtown Lombard. So keep an eye out for the opening. Maybe I’ll see ya there!
