A quick love note. Thank you for being world-class and modest. We thought it was time to brag on you a bit after your fabulous start to spring! It is hard to believe this all just happened:
…Draft Day returned to Chicago after 51 years and was a huge success! This past weekend, over 200,000 fans enjoyed Draft Town and Chicago exceeded the NFL’s expectations.
...The James Beard Awards Gala was held in Chicago on Monday night. This was the first time the prestigious gala was held outside of NYC.
…Chicagoan Donnie Madia, of One Off Hospitality Group, took home the James Beard Award for Outstanding Restaurateur! If anyone has ever had the pleasure of dining at Blackbird, Avec, The Publican or Big Star they have dined at one of Donnie’s restaurants. Donnie’s group also received the well-earned award for Outstanding Bar Program at The Violet Hour.
…The University of Chicago was announced to be the future home of the Barack Obama Presidential Library and Museum.
…Tulips popped up all over The Garden City and we enjoyed the most delightful weekend!
Sweet Home Chicago, we love ya!
