By Erwin Lepiarczyk
Mr. Erwin Lepiarczyk of Churchill Place, Columbia, KY; Mr. William McCarol, and Miss Brittany Jones, both of Knifley, KY, visited Chicago, IL in January, 2011.
While Mr. Lepiarczyk's godfather, Mr. Kazimierz Rusek also of Churchill Place, was a patient in the hospital, the threesome decided it would be a splendid time to visit Chicago.The Adair County travelers thoroughly enjoyed their extended weekend journey to Chicago where they stayed in the luxurious Sheraton Hotel.
They enjoyed shopping along Chicago's upscale Michigan Avenue. Mr. Lepiarczyk was especially delighted to purchase some splendid sweaters in the posh Ralph Lauren Polo store there.
Mr. Lepiarczyk, Mr. McCarol, and Miss Jones dined in some of Chicago's best restaurants, including the renowned Shula's Steak House and one of Mr. Lepiarczyk's favorite Polish restaurants, the Czerwone Jabluszko.
While visiting in the Polish community of Chicago, Mr. Lepiarczyk purchased a splendid assortment of Polish food and cultural items. His family members in Kentucky very much enjoyed the genuine kielbasa, he brought home from Chicago.
The Polish breads from the best Polish bakeries in Chicago were also delightful for Mr. Lepiarczyk, his family members, and friends.
And Mr. Lepiarczyk purchased a lovely Polish lace cloth to adorn an heirloom table which was bestowed upon him by his dear beloved late grandmother, Mrs. Daniel Grider. The table cloth was quite expensive in Chicago; but if Mr. Lepiarczyk had traveled to Poland he could have purchased the table cloth at a significantly less price. Oh well, more Polish beauty has come to Adair County!
Mr. Rusek is now home from his extended stay in the hospital. His health is very guarded and Mr. Lepiarczyk requests prayers for Mr. Rusek's health and well being.
The Polish delights Mr. Lepiarczyk brought home especially for Mr. Rusek seem to be good medicine for him! Mr. Rusek enjoyed Polski kielbasa and Polish bread very much when he was a young boy in Poland some years ago.
The recipes for these foods cannot be found in Kentucky stores. Mr. Lepiarczyk's father, Mr. Gerhard Lepiarczyk, was very pleased that he received some of his favorite Polish bread, makowki, from his son's visit to Chicago. And of course, pirogi and champignons were brought home to Kentucky from Chicago too!
The trio from Adair County had a splendid time on their trip to Chicago. Mr. McCarol and Miss Jones enjoyed their introduction to fine Polish culture with Mr. Lepiarczyk as their guide.
