Lunch Bunch Reviewed

It may have been wet and somewhat gloomy outside but here was nothing but sunshine inside at our lunch bunch outing on Oct. 17. Seven (must be our lucky number)  members met at S&G’s Restaurant , 3000 N Lincoln Ave to share laughs, interests, conversations and great food. Although not in our 47th Ward, it is one of our Forward Chicago sponsors.

John not only welcomed us warmly but also provided a complimentary fruit platter. Thanks John!! Most of us had to take home doggy bags as the food ( most of us ordered various skillets from the extensive breakfast menu) was not only good but abundant. So make sure you check it out and tell John we sent you! We discussed several happenings around the ward and upcoming events.

Want to try something new? On Monday Oct 21 from 8-10pm Hamburger Mary’s 5400 N Clark will donate all proceeds from their HamBingo Mary’s night to our ward’s Pantry. Guarantee this isn’t your usual church bingo when the caller is Velicity Metropolis all decked out in full drag!!! Join the fun and play all night for $15 with a chance to win some possibly interesting prizes.

The next lunch brunch location on Nov 21 will be announced soon and our dinner will be Nov 14 at Chez Simo Bistro 1968 W Lawrence. This is a BYOB establishment without a corkage fee so feel free to bring a bottle of your favorite wine to share. You may even acquire a taste for one you haven’t tried in the past.

So bring your wine, bring a new friend or neighbor (it was noted there were very few men who attend so gentlemen out there come on out!!) to join us whether for lunch or dinner or both!

A bientot!!
