These Wedding Bells Are Making Me Hungry

How the Royal Wedding morphed into something worthy of around the clock coverage, I will never know. How it even demands proper noun status is beyond me. But the fact is that it is here – happening tomorrow – and estimates suggest that roughly 2 billion people will be tuning in.

And sure, those estimates might be based on a sort of fuzzy nostalgia for Britain-as-superpower, when mentions of the royal family stirred up feelings of pride rather than thoughts of scandal. But even if they’re off by a billion people, it’s still attracting more viewers than the World Cup Final and the Super Bowl combined.

I’m taking what seems to be the prevailing approach in America. It’s called wake me up when it’s over, and I’m pretty sure it has nothing to do with the ceremony happening before the sun comes up over here.


But despite my attitude, it’s as good an occasion as any to settle in with a barely-chilled English ale and a platter of fish n’ chips; a day to think about big things, like how that little island nation drove the world for centuries, or how, were it not for the intervention of the French, we might still be a group of British colonies. Or how Kate Middleton is entering into a contract that ensures her offspring are partially the product of centuries of inbreeding. It’s out there, man.


Naturally, GrubHub can feed you while you ponder these things or shed tears of joy in celebration of the happy couple’s nuptials. The following spots, starting with the legendary Globe Pub in Chicago, have you covered.

The Globe Pub
1934 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, IL

One of the most famous soccer bars in the nation (and tops in Chicago, hands down) gets a lot of credit for their live sports events, but you really shouldn’t overlook the other stars – their food and beer selection.

Harriet’s Kitchen

502 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY

Better known for their burgers and hand cut fries, this place also serves up a few English dishes well worth an order.

India Curry House
1040 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA

At least the colonization of India by the British led to one good thing – the western adoption of Indian food. And few do it better.

Mickey Fine Grill
433 Roxbury Dr. Beverly Hills, CA

A bit of a throwback, this pharmacy/grill combination is the only remaining drugstore soda fountain in Los Angeles. And it also whips up a mean plate of fish n’ chips.

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
