A picnic with the Noyes Boys after Northwestern’s commencement and convocation last weekend was a being your own affair in the park behind our graduate’s apartment on Ridge, near the Piven (as in actor Jeremy Piven of Entourage fame and a NU grad) Theater. Fortunately there is a strip of food places along Noyes. Al’s Deli had good sandwiches on excelLent baguettes (next time I will get the pate or smoked salmon rather than the roast beef) but Al (presumably) and his one assistant were a bit overwhelmed by the post convocation crowd and it took ages to get our food. The burrito place next door was much after and just as good. decent coffee place nearby too.
