Friday? Or FriedDay?

Join me for restaurant club this week and prepare to be amazed at how quickly your clothes become filled with the heavenly aroma of fried dough, seafood, and cocktail sauce. They really should make a Yankee candle out of that smell. That and dryer sheets.

Happy Labor Day! Hope you enjoyed your tofu break last week, but I think restaurant club had a good thing going with the Latin/Mexican restaurants so I’m going to pick another one. We have only been here once, although it’s a neighborhood fave, and the cocktails and churros were delicious. The tacos were unique and tasty but my goal is to order ones that are less spicy this time. Please let me know by Thursday night if you can join us!

Sorry for the late e-mail! We were on vacation until Tue. and have been real busy since getting caught up on work / Sawyer ready for school…

OK, so this week’s R.C. isn’t all that close for most of you; it’s in Mount Prospect. But it comes highly recommended by our own Lisa Knight, who works in M.P. and lunches there regularly. And I have it on good authority that a few of you would come out to meet us if this spot were chosen… so here we are! The place doesn’t take reservations, so just let me know by 5pm tomorrow (Friday) if you’ll be in attendance. And please note the early 6pm start time!
