> 1. Grachki (grach'-key): Chicagoese for "garage key" as in, "Yo,
> Theresa, waja do wit da grachki? How my supposta cut da grass if I don't
> git intada grach?"
>
> 2. Sammich: Chicagoese for sandwich. When made with sausage, it's a
> sassage sammich; when made with shredded beef, it's an Italian Beef
> sammich, a local delicacy consisting of piles of spicy meat in a
> perilously soggy bun.
>
> 3. Da: This article is a key part of Chicago speech, as in "Da Bears"
> or "Da Mare" -- the latter denoting Richard M. Daley, or Richie, as he's
> often called.
>
> 4. Jewels: Not family heirlooms or a tender body region, but a popular
> name for one of the region's dominant grocery store chains. "I'm goin'
> to the Jewels to pick up some sassage."
>
> 5. Field's: Marshall Field, a prominent Chicago department store. Now
> Macy's. Also Carson Pirie Scott, another major department store chain, is simply
> called " Cars on 's."

> Cellular Field (da Cell)

Welcome Willard. Thats how I pretty much found this site as well as the other ones I looked at for bowling had either too much fighting between people that just didn't like each other, or too much spam [censored] posts. I'm glad I did as I'm sure you will.

Silvercoach, growing up in Chicago, I never noticed the local slang. After I went away to College and spent a little time in the military, I returned and couldn't understand anyone.
The most common Chicago colloquialism is what I intentionally said in My first sentence to Willard. Chicagoans always end a sentence with a preposition. Just trying to make him feel at home.

Welcome, again, Willard. Now, where ya from? Da Burbs? Nort or Sout side? Oh yeah, we drop the H's on those too.
