CHICAGO - weekend Mini Do - Sept 21/22

Hey all, a number of Do's happening this weekend. Join for all of the activities or just one, your choice, just confirm to the thread what you plan on attending so I can manage expectations for venues/restaurants.

Saturday September 21:

1:20pm Cubs game vs the St Louis Cardinals
Wrigley Field - I have 3 tickets and they are spoken for. I am happy to lend assistance to purchase tickets for a group of folks if needed. So if interested in the game, let the thread know

5:30pm Dinner at D'Candela
C'mon out to D'Candela a Peruvian restaurant that is BYOB (Bring your own booze). The restaurant is VERY easy to get to with public transportation, it is only a few blocks away from the Blue Line (& Metra) Irving Park stop.
Fellow FT members & I dined here awhile back in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018 and we enjoyed everything we had. Some examples of very tasty dishes include:
Peruvian-style rotisserie chicken roasted slowly over real charcoal

Ceviche Mixto - Seafood and fresh tilapia marinated with lime juice, cilantro and rocoto pepper. Served with red onions, sweet potato, potato and Peruvian white corn. Slightly spicy.

Ocopa - Boiled and sliced potatoes topped with creamy sauce made with huacatay herb, nuts, milk and cheese. Served with boiled egg.

Chicha Morada - Traditional homemade Peruvian drink made of purple corn.

D'Candela
3447-3449 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, IL 60618
Chicago, IL 60618

After Dinner, maybe drinks, maybe music club, maybe comedy club, TBD. (I have a number of ideas but suggestions welcome)

Sunday September 22:

8am Breakfast - (yes I know it is early but there are some that are likely to need a flight out on Sunday, so allowing plenty of time for those folks to get to the airport)
Wishbone (Southern breakfast/brunch). The red eggs or shimp n grits are just two of the delicious items served.
161 N Jefferson St
Chicago IL 60661

Working on a Sunday mid morning activity. Stay tuned.

Who's interested? ALL ARE WELCOME

Sign me up!

Also, perhaps we can 'honor' Oktoberfest with a Sunday afternoon or evening activity.

It has become an annual trip for me. 'Bout time I order some lederhosen.

At some point the calendar will line up so I can get back to Chicago...

I have to pass on both this and Oktoberfest. Haven't been there in 15 years either. So no brats or Cuy for me that weekend.

We will be in Iceland that weekend and have to miss this one. Sounds like some good eating - hope everyone enjoys.
