Don’t Forget Dad!

Father’s Day is this weekend (Sunday 6/17… in case you forgot)! What better way celebrate dad than to spend time at some Chicago hot spots? Whether your dad’s a sports fanatic or a serious foodie, we’ve gotgreat ideas that are sure to please.

Sports FanDadic (Ha! So Cheesy):

It’s NBA Finals; watch the Heat vs. Thunder at one of Chicago’s best sports bars, The Scout. Their walls are decked with 34 HD flat screens for dad’s (and your) viewing pleasure. Want to make it an all day event?  The Scout’s Sunday brunch is known throughout Chicago and is sure to put a smile on dad’s face; start with brunch then kick around until the game starts at 7pm. Book a private table & “Sports Package” at http://www.TheScoutEvents.com/.

The Scout on 1301 S. Wabash Ave.

If your dad is a Cubs fan, head over to Wrigley to see them take on the Red Sox. Try to get tickets ASAP, but if you can’t find any, watch the game from Casey Moran’s famous Wrigleyville Beergarden. Visit CaseyMoransEvents.com for details.

Father Foodie:

Men love beer. Men love bacon. Put them together and you’ve just provided the best Father’s Day dad could ask for. Paddy Long’s Beer and Bacon Pub offers a beer and bacon tasting where you can sample five seasonal beers with five cuts of bacon. Sadly, Sunday is all booked up, but there are still Saturday night spots, so head over to http://www.paddylongs.com/ to reserve online!

Does dad like pig roasts? We have two locations to try!

  1. Chicago’s New Asian Restaurant, Sunda, is having a Father’s Day Pig Roast where you treat dad to a special menu of roasted pig, chicken and duck with a selection of sides. Top things off with their $8 bloody mary bar. Make a reservation online via their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/sundachicago
  1. Head over to Frontier in West Town Chicago for a whole roast pig feast served up with a house-made Cesar and their famous mac & cheese. Check out TheFrontierEVENTS.com for details and to book reservations, online.

Hope you and your Dad have a safe, fun and happy Father’s Day!


Treat Your Mama to a Brunch Party!

Nothing will make your Mother’s Day more special than an awesome brunch. It’s quick, easy and guaranteed to be delicious.  Here are 5 Chicago brunch spots that will definitely give the mom in your life a meal she will remember.

Bull and Bear

Located in the heart of River North, Bull and Bear has a very wallet-friendly brunch. We recommend the silver dollar pancake trio where mom can choose her combo from strawberry, blueberry, banana, chocolate chip or regular. Give her celebration some oomph with their $15 bottomless mimosas! BullandBearEvents.com


If you’re on the west side of town and feeling adventurous Frontier is great brunch spot for you. Get mom the Crab Benedict or try the fried rabbit and waffles. They are even offering a special “Mother’s Day Brunch” menu that includes 3 courses for only $25. TheFrontierEVENTS.com

Butch McGuire’s

If you mom likes a laid back, saloon atmosphere take her to Butch McGuire’s on Near North Side Chicago. Satisfy her tastebuds with an order of chorizo hash or steak and eggs. http://butchmcguires.com/

The Fifty/50

Is mom a bacon lover? Take her to The Fifty/50 for the all you can eat bacon special. They are famous for their thick cut maple glazed & they also serve up a tasty big country scramble. http://www.thefifty50.com/

Declan Irish Pub

Last, but certainly not least is Declan’s in Old Town where you can enjoy brunch on the patio. Their authentic Irish flare brings something different to the brunch mix. Famous for their shepherd’s pie, they may be an unconventional choice but a delicious one nonetheless. https://declansirishpub.projectparties.com/

Happy Mother’s Day!
