Leaguefest Dinner Plans!
It’s hard to believe we’re less than two weeks away from the start of Leaguefest 2013. With the Friday schedule now set, the next step is the Saturday schedule, with the most important element of that being dinner Saturday night. I’ll look to put up a full Saturday schedule next weekend, but for now wanted to get confirmation on who planned to attend the Saturday dinner, and also wanted to give an opportunity to weigh in on the restaurant.
Because of the Bluesfest going on that weekend, reservations downtown are rapidly becoming scarce, so I tentatively booked a table for 12 for 7:30 at the Atwood Cafe, which seemed to have a decent menu at a reasonable price by downtown major city standards. However, I can cancel this reservation pretty easily if there is support for another option, and I made the tentative reservation only because this restaurant was likely to be fully booked by the time a final decision is reached. In any event, here are several other possible options:
Rosebud Prime: This is definitely on the expensive side, but that would be the case for any steakhouse, and it just seems wrong to have Leaguefest in Chicago without having at least one steakhouse in the mix. For what it’s worth, The Palm and Morton’s also have availability, but obviously they’re both also national chains.
Rosebud Theater District. Italian, a bit more affordable than the rest.
