It’s that time of year again—time for Oktoberfest! But, no need to go to Germany to give your group an authentic experience.

Burrito Beach Party Platters Put a New Twist on Box Lunches

Although they’ve been around for the past 20 years, Chicago’s Tex Mex emporium Burrito Beach is charting new waters with a foray into affordable catering for meetings and events. While its taco and nacho bars bank on the popularity of “build-your-own” stations, “beach boxes” update the old lunch staple with a choice of burrito, salad or quesadilla.
