The secrets of Dixon's Famous Chili, explained

A century after Dixon's Chili opened, Stephen Steffes-the general manager and great-great-nephew of founder Vergne Dixon-realized he didn't know the restaurant's exact birthday.

12 is an accomplishment. I managed 10 back in the day, it was tough, but delicious. This sucks, I'm hungry again and just got back from lunch.
