Get Your Carbs On

2005_10_pasta.jpgChicagoist has a long-standing belief that an excess or lack of any particular foods for any reason makes as much sense as dipping one's tongue in a vat of acid ...

... except for, of course, in instances such as prepping for the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon and to those hitting the pavement on Sunday, we say, "Get your carbs on, bitches!"

While there are different schools of thought as to what constitutes the best pre-race meal, tomorrow's menu for all runners has to be planned out and given some thought. If you're thinking pasta, here are some of Chicagoist's suggestions. They may not be the height of pasta eating, but they get the job done. Feel free, good readers, to chime in with suggestions:

Maggiano's, various locations
Coco Pazzo Cafe, 636 N. St. Clair St.
Big Bowl, 6 East Cedar or 60 East Ohio
Mia Francesca, 3311 N. Clark St.
The Pasta Bowl, 2434 N. Clark St.
Vong's Thai Kitchen, 6 W. Hubbard St.

Good luck runners!
