Best Tame Game 

Mariano's

Sure, you could hike all the way out to Homer Glen and get your python meat at Czimer's, but why bother when they have fillets of frozen imported Vietnamese serpent at your local Mariano's? Along with the oyster bars, barbecue stands, and popcorn machines, the burgeoning grocer offers a frozen-meat section dedicated to "tame game"—farmed wild critters like alligator, pheasant, ostrich, duck, quail, and buffalo. They're all priced fairly steeply, so at least you'll appreciate their sacrifice.
