Hey all, I’m taking Jenny’s rc this week to check out Ixcateco Grill. It’s headed by a former Bayless chef dude, so there’s that. And Mexican food is the absolute best food ever, so come share the same sentiment, or argue with me.

Let’s say 6pm. Let me know Friday by noon.

Hey everyone-

Please join me for some cocktails and New Orleans inspired food in this very pretty spot I recently noticed north on Broadway. Maybe it will be nice and they will have the front open so we can all pretend we are on vacation somewhere.

How can you pass up a place named after the chef’s great grandmother?

Please let me know by noon on Thursday if you can make it.

Laissez les bons temps roulet!!

Hi all,

For this week’s RC, please join me at Lucy’s, a new casual burger joint in Humboldt Park. (Or I guess I should say new-ish: It’s been operating as a food truck for a while, but this storefront location has only been open for a few weeks.)

Some additional details can be found at their website, but one thing that’s not there is a menu. Not to worry, though, as they’ve posted it on Instagram.

Since they’re only open until 8, let’s meet up at 6 PM. Please note that it’s BYOB. If you’re looking for somewhere nearby to pick up beer, I’d recommend Puerto Rico Liquors on the corner of Rockwell and Augusta.

And please RSVP by tomorrow at noon.

Hey all –

I spied a photo of Pfeffer and Lango’s awesome tiki bar on Instagram, and since Jeff Dunlap and I will be in Chicago this weekend, I thought perhaps a combo tiki/restaurant club was in order. Lango and Pfeffer were kind to agree, so join us this Friday for a special edition of Drunk Club, followed by Neapolitan-style thin-crust pizzas.

Drunk Club: Chicago’s hottest club is The Hermitage Tiki Bar. It has everything: kitsch, booze, friendly owners, and a one-eyed Pekingese.
Date: Friday, May 4th @ 5:30pm
Where: 4455 N. Hermitage Ave., Unit G, Chicago, IL 60640 (Map)
