Popcorn Asylum Takes Popcorn Seriously in Lakeview

$7 for a 4oz. bag of popcorn!? That's more than I pay for popcorn when I'm at the movies! At least at the movies I can get an unlimited bucket of popcorn for that money.

Do you know how much un-popped popcorn you can buy for $7? And if you're resourceful enough, you can buy top notch powdered cheese sprinkle stuff at local spice shops. Or try things like Old Bay seasoning, fresh cracked pepper, paprika, chili powder or you can make your own kettle korn by mixing equal parts sugar and salt.

Popcorn is about the CHEAPEST snack you can buy if you make it yourself. And all you need to make homemade popcorn in the microwave is a paper lunch bag folded over a couple times, about 1/4 of a cup of popcorn kernels and 3 minutes. It's even healthy!

I will not be shopping at this establishment, and I live literally a block away.

How to make or where to buy Horchata in Chicago?

I recently bought my dad a bottle of Rumchata for father's day. He loved it, as I knew he would. He loves Horchata, so it only makes sense. He did ask if it was possible to make your own Horchata. I'm sure it is, but I have NO idea where to even begin. I live in Chicago, I city with a large latino population, so I'm sure it would be easy enough to buy the hardware to make your own. Does anyone know how to make horchata? And if not, where can I buy it retail? I can find it at local Mexican taquerias but only for personal consumption. If I were to buy it, I'd want, ya know, a gallon or so at a time. To summarize, does anyone know how to make Mexican horchata or where I can buy a lot at a retail establishment?
