Weekend Write Up: September 17, 18, 19

Date Night? Looks like Logan Square is the place to go for romance...
Congratulations to Lula Cafe and Longman & Eagle, who were named 2 of the Top 5 Restaurants for a first date in Chicago according to the Hungry Hound, Steve Dolinsky. Read the story here.

And while you're at Longman & Eagle [on your date of course] you'll be sure to notice their new fall menu filled with comfort-food inspired seasonal menu fare. Just added: Maple Braised Ham Hock w/Collard Greens, Creamy Grits, & Chanterelle Mushrooms.

Finish your evening with a Friday Night Dance Party at the Whistler, featuring a rotating cast of DJs from the greatest radio station in Chicago, CHIRP (Chicago Independent Radio Project) who will play a mix of everything from Soul to Hip Hop to Indie Rock bangers to Pop classics and beyond. Party starts at 9:30 PM.
