  • New! – Your Official Chicagoboyz Merchant Tie-Ins

    Posted by Jonathan on July 12th, 2010 (All posts by )

    Official Watch

    This is the official watch of the Chicagoboyz blog. One of your male Chicagoboyz bloggers, who is secure in his masculinity, owns this watch and you should too. It is really a very macho watch for manly men who know that a man’s manliness is not defined by the size or color of his watch, if you get my drift.
    Official Toilet Seat
    The Mossy Oak® woodland camo toilet seat is the official toilet seat of the Chicagoboyz blog. We are not usually early adopters of radical technology but this is one of those new products that no reasonable person can live without.
    Official Restaurant
    Pollo Tropical
    Pollo Tropical is the official restaurant of the Chicagoboyz blog.

      I object to Pollo Tropical as our official restaurant until such time as they add *coffee* to their menu.

      It’s official: I am not sufficiently secure in my masculinity.

    3. Lexington Green Says:

      Dude, so wrong about the official restaurant.

      Guess the correct official restaurant.

      Hint one: The team at work

      Hint two: “What kind of potatoes my friend?”

      Hint three: Short ribs, Saturday only.

      What happened to Harold’s, or maybe Valois.

    5. Robert Schwartz Says:

      BTW, the watch is out of sight.

    6. Lexington Green Says:

      Robert, virtual fist-bump.

      I could go for some bird right now.

      I need to get over to the Harolds on South Wabash soon, if I can’t get to HP.

    7. Jonathan Says:

      Pollo is the new Harold’s. One must move with the times.

    8. Dan from Madison Says:

      no ribs = no restaurant

    9. Dan from Madison Says:

      cudos on the camo toilet seat though

      That’s a nice looking watch. (Almost as good looking as the clear plastic Baby G “jelly” sports watch. Ahem. :) )

      I subscribe to Health Magazine and in addition to discussion of various excercise routines, healthy (naturally) recipes and ads for wrinkle cream (I know, I know), there are always reviews of these types of watches. Generally a pictorial layout with a rainbow assortment of colored watches by Donna Karan or something.

      Greg Gutfield once had a funny online riff about Health Magazine, the dodgy medical “science” within and the types of people that subscribe. Not too flattering to the likes of me! But I like the recipes!

      Marketing must be really advanced these days. My 5 year old looked at the picture of El Pollo Tropical and asked if we could go there to eat. She doesn’t know how to read, but she knew it was a restaurant. This subliminal advertising business is really true, eh?

      By the way, you guys might want to look at El Bolero on Western Ave. Rough area but good food and no attitude.
