: Where to eat and drink this Memorial Day weekend in Chicago.

 

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, and the unofficial onset of barbecue bingeing and patio-lounging. As we enter the thick of sunny season, there’s lots to eat, drink, and do over the course of Memorial Day weekend.

 

Sportsman’s Club embarks on its second summer BBQ series starting Memorial Day weekend. Every Sunday from Memorial Day through Labor Day finds a different guest chef cooking up ‘cue on the bar’s spacious back patio. The first chef to get things underway on May 24 is John Manion, who will be previewing his upcoming El Che Bar. The fete begins at 4:00 p.m. and runs until supplies are out. To drink, the backyard cocktail program this year includes a rotating draft cocktail and a couple boozy snow cones, including one splashed with bourbon, Branca Menta, Letherbee Besk, and mint. Cost for food and a beer is $20 per person.

With Memorial Day comes an increased urge to eat al fresco, perhaps even on a picnic blanket. Ideally with fried chicken. Honey Butter Fried Chicken makes picnic dreams come true with the return of their cold fried chicken packs, baskets of Americana food ample enough to feed four and designed to be taken and eaten at your leisure. With pick-up available on Sunday, May 24, each pack contains eight pieces of cold fried chicken, four corn muffins and honey butter, kale and cabbage slaw, fusilli pasta salad, and four toffee cookies.…………CONTINUE:
