We wanted to recreate a classic summertime backyard BBQ with friends in an outdoor space, plenty of food on the grill, and craft brews, from a patio in downtown Chicago, Howells & Hood’s East Patio.
Last night, Howells & Hood hosted an open house event to welcome Anderson Valley Brewing Company to Chicago Craft Beer Week. Some fun facts that we learned:
8 Chefs. 9 chicken dishes. 1 new menu place up for grabs. Sweetwater Tavern and Grille held a (kinda) secret Chicken Cook-Off between nine chefs, who were to pit their best chicken dishes against each other. I decided to document the occasion, and volunteer myself as a tasting judge in the process.
Beer Tapping in Oak Brook. We discovered what goes into a beer tapping event with local craft brewery Big Shoulders at Old Town Pour House in Oak Brook.
Howells & Hood Launches First Annual Chili Cook-Off – a Chili Bowl of our own to compliment this year’s Super Bowl on Sunday, February 2.
Last night was the latest installment of WGN Radio’s Blackhawks Live, which this month featured Chicago Blackhawks’ defenseman Duncan Keith.
