Last Day for Mario’s, See Why You Wanna Go In This Video Here

The legendary and beloved Taylor Street Italian lemonade spot Mario’s (1066 W. Taylor) closes for the season after today, commemorating the day that the original Mario passed away after a full season many years ago. We know where we’ll be tonight for one last taste (we love the watermelon in particular, canteloupe too). But if you don’t know what we’re talking about, here’s a video some guys from the neighborhood made a few years ago, in which they interview Skip, son of Mario and the owner of the stand. It’s not art, but it’s got heart, which is pretty much exactly what you’d say about the whole place. Check it out and then get there, tonight.
