💝VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL💝 – Margie’s Candies

Margie’s Candies
1960 N Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60613


A sweet love story that began in 1933,
back when Peter married his darling Margie
Almost a hundred years later their love still stands..
in an old fashioned ice cream shop,
in the heart of where it all began

You’ll feel as if you are teleported to another time
A time where the moments go slow,
and instead of carrying dollars, you carry dimes
Old jukeboxes in place,
signed memorabilia on the walls
A place where the portions are jumbo, although the shop is pretty small

Handmade candies is their specialty,
a tradition that is proudly passed down
A Chicago institution, with some of the best ice-cream around
Homemade hot fudge and caramel,
so good I eat it by the spoonful
Ice cream in a fancy white clam-shell dish,
to not finish it all would just be cruel

With a 1950’s decor, and the thought of the countless times that were spent…
Here at Margies, where the booth in the back is where the Beetles once sat after a Chicago event
Along with the Beatles come the Rolling Stones,
the thought that Al Capone was a “regular” here chills me to the bone

The history echoes as soon as you step inside,
Margie’s and her ice cream will make any Chicagoan fill up with pride!

    That looks (and sounds) good. I wish I’d seen this before I left Chicago!
