jungle jim's eastgate opening

Tomorrow - roughly 12 hours from now - is the grand opening of the Eastgate location of Jungle Jim's International Market.  Here are the FAQs.  The beer/wine/cheese entrance is around back, and I've heard that the gluten free selection is fantastic.  I just wonder: which location - Eastgate or Fairfield - will maintain bragging rights for the largest gluten free selection in the Midwest?? 

Looking forward to reporting back :)  Until then, happy eating!
