My name is Dr. Richard F. Felicetti. I have always been interested in the history of the United States, especially Presidents of the United States. In the early 1960’s I started and still do today, collecting Presidential Campaign Buttons. My professional career was in the Field of Education. After two years of Military Service, I began my professional career. I was a Teacher, Principal at three levels-Grade School, Junior High School and High School, Director of a Head Start Summer Program, Adjunct College Professor and Superintendent of a Grade School District. I retired as Superintendent of School District 206, Bloom Township High School in Chicago Heights, Illinois, the high school district that I graduated from in 1951.

When I graduated from high school, I went on to receive my Bachelors and Masters Degrees from Northern Illinois University. I received my Ph.D. from Walden University in 1993.

When I retired from education in 1994, I asked myself what can I do that would be of interest. With my hobby of collecting Presidential Campaign Buttons, I thought it would be fun, exciting and certainly interesting to visit all the gravesites of the deceased Presidents of the United States. I began my journey in 1999 and completed it in 2012. During that time, I have visited every gravesite of our deceased presidents and in some cases I have visited them on many occasions.

When I visited the gravesites, I would take thirty to forty photographs of them. From the very beginning, I knew that someday I would write a book covering my thoughts and experiences that I had while on was on my journey. I have now completed my book. I have written a story about each visit to the presidential gravesites. To go along with each story, I would like to have certain photographs printed of the presidential gravesites. In addition to writing about my visits to the presidential gravesites, I have written my Introduction, Epilogue, Acknowledgements, Dedication and also About the Author. I do feel my story will create interest, make a person smile and at times bring tears to the eyes of the reader. It is a story that was heart warming for me to do and I am hopeful that I may share it with the world.

I presently live in Peoria, Arizona with my wife, Sharon. As we continue to travel, we will continue to visit presidential gravesites. Every visit is different, always meaningful, moving, sometimes sad, but always tells me that my story has to be shared.

Hi, I’m Dick Portillo and I welcome you to The Portillo Restaurant Group and its five different concepts (Portillo’s Hot Dogs, Barnelli’s Pasta Bowl, Honey-Jam Cafe, Luigi’s House and Julian’s Piano Bar). I hope you will find the time to visit each of the concepts and enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed developing them. Following is the history of how this all came about.

Dick Portillo was born at 1330 West Van Buren in Chicago, Illinois. His family then moved to government-subsidized row houses on Mohawk Street, called the Mother Frances Cabrini Housing Project. After his father started earning enough money, they were prompted to leave and moved to 1617 South Central Park. His family later moved to the southwest suburbs. He was a 1957 graduate of Argo Community High School at 63rd and Harlem. After high school, he served a tour with the Marine Corps.

The first Portillo’s hot dog stand known as “The Dog House” opened in 1963 on North Avenue in Villa Park. Owner and founder Dick Portillo invested $1,100 into a 6′ x 12′ trailer without a bathroom or running water. To get the water he needed, he ran 250 feet of garden hose from a nearby building into the trailer.

By 1966, “The Dog House” was a success and was ready for a new look. After it was remodeled, it was renamed “Portillo’s” and over the years has grown into a successful multi-state operation. Portillo’s expanded to Southern California in 2005 and to Indiana in 2006.

Club 400 is a 2,300 square-foot place dedicated solely to the Chicago Cubs. It was a lifelong dream of Stewart McVicar. The goal was to create the best place to watch his beloved Chicago Cubs when he could not be at Wrigley Field. “You can’t go to all the Cubs games,” McVicar said, “so the goal was to build the next best thing.”

The dream turned into a four-year project that he put his heart and soul into. No detail was overlooked. The project was started in 2009 and completed in 2013, just in time to celebrate his 40th birthday with friends and family.

Its focal point is the Cubs-themed bar. Fifty bats line the perimeter of the Cubs-shaped logo, and all of them have been signed by 2016 Cubs World Series Champions and past Cubs legends.

The basement has three brick walls made from the same brick that has been used for all of Wrigley Field’s renovations. Authentic Wrigley Field bricks signed by Ernie Banks and Ron Santo have been built into these walls.

Today, Club 400 contains many pieces of memorabilia from Wrigley Field including bases, turnstiles, a locker, an organ, seats, bats, baseballs, rosin bags, cleats, and countless other items.

The basement would not be complete without the ultimate game-day entertainment setup: 10 TVs, a 92-inch projection screen, and four live feeds. There are also separate bathrooms for men and women. When there isn’t a Cubs game on, guests can play one of the many arcade or table games.

Originating in Korea, Takewondo is based on well-rounded, moral teachings.

Compared to other activities that emphasize “winning at all costs”, Taekwondo lays a foundation for a happy, well-adjusted, and fulfilled adult life.
