In this week's batch of brunch bites, princesses and pirates come together in Schaumburg and Sable Kitchen & Bar hosts a whisky legend.
(Princesses and pirates converge at Shaw's Crab House in Schaumburg)
When you think of Sunday brunch rituals, princesses and pirates probably aren't the first things to come to mind. Unless you regularly brunch at Disney World. But soon, kids and families (and lords and ladies) get the opportunity to brunch amongst royalty and seafaring scoundrels at Shaw's Crab House in Schaumburg. The restaurant's first annual Princesses and Pirates Sunday Brunch takes place October 26 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., featuring a kid-friendly buffet, adult fare, and glorious photo opportunities with princesses and pirates. Along with whimsical characters, there will be shellfish and seafood aplenty, traditional brunch fare, desserts, and more.
Also happening October 26 is another special brunch event, and what this one lacks in princesses, it more than makes up for in whisky. Sable Kitchen & Bar is set to welcome whisky wunderkind Dave Broom for a special "Whisky Tasting, Brunch & Book Signing" event, in honor of Broom's new book, The World of Atlas Whisky 2nd Edition. He will be in attendance at Sable from noon until 2:00 p.m., guiding guests through the eclectic stylings of eight whisky tastings. Following the tastings, diners will engage in a special brunch prepared by executive chef Heather Terhune, and the floor will open for Q&A and book signings with Broom. Tickets are $120 per person, which includes a copy of the book, and can be purchased here.
