It’s a double header! Put on your Cubs or Sox gear and head over to the Windy City (Grille) in Maryville to sample their Chicago style food and watch the Crosstown Classic: Chicago vs Chicago baseball game. Stay for a few innings or the whole game. If you miss Portillos’s Italian Beef sandwich, they offer a pretty good substitute.

Who could resist home cooked vittles prepared from scratch just for members of our club? We will gather in an original log cabin to enjoy this multi-course gourmet meal. This is a special opportunity because this venue is only available to groups and is not open to the public.
