Gene & Jude's (see the Roadfood.com review) is located on River Road, in the town of River Grove (IL). Guess what? They're near a river, the Des Plaines River to be precise. And that river sometimes floods, as it is doing right now, resulting in Gene & Jude's closure. They're saying on their Facebook page that they will remain closed through the weekend, at least. Gene & Jude's was last closed due to flooding about five years ago. And it'll probably happen again on some future date. Thankfully, for them and for us, it's only temporary.
