2001 Obama appearance on Chicago TV tonight

Posted on Friday, January 16th, 2009 at 4:52 pm CET

Back when he was an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama made an appearance on WTTW Channel 11’s restaurant review program “Check, Please!” The show never aired… until tonight. Local viewers can check out the full episode on Channel 11 tonight at 8pm or the rerun on Tuesday (that’s Inauguration Day!!) at 4pm. Meanwhile, here are two clips from the shelved episode.

You can read more about the appearance, including why the episode was shelved, at the Daily Herald.

We just watched this on WTTW and Barack Obama’s favorite restaurant Dixie Kitchen and Bait Shop looks like a great restaurant that we will need to check out once. Although now that the next President of the United States has endorsed this place it may be very crowded for a while? 😉
