The 1970s are alive and well at Rhyme Or Reason. The new restaurant, in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, boasts an intriguing cocktail program and “American eclec - tic” menu, all built around the retro theme.

“We think the ‘70s was one of the greatest eras,” says Rhyme Or Reason partner Le’Qoinne Rice. “New music, new booze and different types of cuisines were being introduced and accepted in America. It was truly a great time to dance and celebrate life.”

Executive Chef Chris de la Cueva says the menu is unlike anything guests would usually see on nearby Division Street. Customers can indulge in dishes such as Moroccan Lamb Meatballs and Duck, Duck Pie as well as flirty cocktails like the Sex Machine.

The unique restaurant seats up to 202 guests and has pri - vate dining space available with regular live music and a variety of event packages.

Portillo’s is bringing Chicago-style classics to Woodbury on July 11. Originating in 1963 in Villa Park, Illinois, it has since expanded to other states including Indiana, Florida, California, Wisconsin, and Arizona. Portillo’s is known for its high-quality, Chicago-style food, efficient service and vintage-restaurant décor. Some of the restaurant’s featured Chicago-style menu items include Italian Beef sandwiches, Chicagostyle hot dogs, burgers, salads and its famous chocolate cake, baked fresh in stores each morning.

 

A new trend is sweeping across the Chicago event industry, unifying the people that take part in producing live experiences with the places that host them. Established event production and catering companies have ventured into opening their own well-equipped spaces, designed for planners, by planners. We took a look at three trailblazers—Kehoe Designs, Paramount Events and The Revel Group—that are making events feel right at home.

It was the day no one thought they would see happen—at least in this lifetime. On Nov. 2, the eternal underdogs the Chicago Cubs won the 2016 World Series Championship, ending a 108-year wait and gaining a whole lot of new appreciation and fans as a result. Just 10 weeks later they would celebrate yet again at the annual fan convention at the Sheraton Grand Chicago, which was an undeniable success thanks to the quick actions of a team of event producers.
