Margarita Madness

I happened to stumble onto this hidden gem located in one of the most unlikely locations on the south side of Chicago.  I can not believe the lack of support this restaurant receives considering they provide such a great dining experience.  Well, I want to share my little secret with you.

From my understanding, it is African American owned. Feel free to browse the yelp reviews and go to the restaurant's website for more info.  This is not your typical tex-mex joint, but everything I had was delicious and made with a high level of quality and complexity. Although they have a full service bar, it is BYOB!!! ;-) I make some killer margaritas and I plan on bringing a big bottle of Tequila! Shake it up, shake it up, shake it up, shake it! LOL

A $10 deposit is required for all attendees.  You will recieve a cash refund at the restaurant.  We also request you bring cash to settle your bill at the end of the evening.  Although it is getting much cooler outside, doesn't mean the HOT events have to stop!

    Another memorable event to add to the long list. Great food, great drinks, great people, great conversations, great laughter, and our very OWN playlist of great Neo-Soul music. LOL. Can it get any better than that?...

    Hi Nairobi,

    Thanks,

    There are about 3 spots open if anybody is looking for something to do last minute. There is no need to pay the deposit. The purpose of the deposit was to minimize cancellations...and it was very effective! ;-)

    November 8, 2012

    • Dawne

      Hi Nairobi! I took one of the open spots, now bringing 2 people (total of 3), only 2 of us are paid. Thank you.

  • Adriana

    Is there a nearby train or bus because if so I could just come from downtown! I'm not real familiar with chicago what is the area like at this place, is anyone taking public transit to get there?

    November 4, 2012

    • Tracey

      Not sure that a train will be close enough to walk to this venue. However, if you catch the #8 bus (Halsted) it should let you off on 46th and Halsted which is across the street.

      November 4, 2012

    • Pam B.

      Hi Adriana, since you're not familiar with Chicago or the area of the restaurant, you may prefer to drive or take a cab. This is a quiet industrial area, a few factories nearby, a school, and there's a grocery store across the street from the restaurant that I was told closes around 10pm. Hope this helps or call the restaurant for more info. See you there. :)

      November 5, 2012

  • Robi

    I probably added one extra name to the wait list because I couldn't determine the name associated with the payment. If you paid and are on the wait list, please let me know.

    There are a few spots remaining. I extended the RSVP deadline until tomorrow @ noon.

    Please do not RSVP without payment. I wouldn't want someone with serious interest to miss out.

    Thanks!

    November 5, 2012

    • Pam B.

      Thank you sir :) Appreciate it.

      November 5, 2012

    • Pam B.

      Btw, it's good that you said to bring CASH to this meetup in order to settle up at the end of the evening.

      November 5, 2012

  • Simply A.

    Paid

    November 5, 2012

  • Robi

    There are a some MeetUp names that do not match the name on the deposit. The list is full, but tickets are left so I need to trim the list by a few names so the remaining spots can open up. If you are one of the most recent RSVP's, please mark paid in the comment section.

  • Adriana

    Yay, I just paid . This is my first meetup, I'm super excited!

    November 4, 2012

    • Tracey

      Welcome, Adriana, Looking forward to meeting you.

      November 4, 2012

  • Adriana

    Where am I suppose to pay? Also what is the parking like? Is it possible to get there via public transportation! What is the best way to get there car, train, or bus.

    November 4, 2012

    • Tracey

      Hi Adriana, you can pay for your spot by clicking on the wepay link above. Also, this restaurant offers street parking if you decide the drive.

      November 4, 2012

  • Dawne

    Paid and ready for my first meetup with the group. Now...what to bring...NOT tequila :)

    November 3, 2012

    • Robi

      Welcome to the group Dawn! It is BYOB, so bring whatever you like. There is no corkage fee for wine.

      November 3, 2012

    • Dawne

      Thanks. Sounds like a plan!

      November 3, 2012

  • Robert

    Thinking I might have to bring some Tequlia so we can do shots!

    3 · November 2, 2012

    • Robi

      Sounds good Robert. I'm bringing a big bottle for margaritas and plenty of limes. This is going to be real interesting! ;-)

    Ok, I updated the list with the paid RSVP's. I accidentally moved a couple people to not attending...sorry, I'm a rookie with this.

    The remaining spots are first come, first paid. If I made any errors, please alert me ASAP.

    Thanks!

    I just paid the fee.

    Paid my reservation fee Nairobi.

    2 · November 1, 2012

  • Robi

    Just a reminder... Unpaid RSVP's will be moved to wait list tomorrow and the available spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis. There are currently 21 available spots, so those on the wait list have a very good chance of attending.

    I might be able to get the restaurant to accomodate more people, but it is not a guarantee. Some of you on the wait list already paid and I assure you that your spot is secure.

    See ya next week! :-)

    1 · November 1, 2012

  • Robi

    Anyone on the wait list that is seriously interested in attending should make their deposit now. Currently, I only have 15 deposits. If we go over a few people, I'm certain the restaurant would accomodate us. Once the tickets are sold out, the RSVP's will close.

    Also, there are a couple of deposits from names I don't recognize. If your guest has paid, please leave a comment under your RSVP.

    Thanks!

    October 26, 2012

  • Robi

    Oops! Thanks Henri. I thought I choose the waitlist option. Updated!

    October 21, 2012

  • Henri B.

    Being moved to the waiting list would be helped by having a wait list. Also, at this point, anyone else who may be interested can't post, as of now.

  • Katrena G.

    I never heard of this place until groupon did a deal and since, I love mexican food, I purchased it. Getting there from the north suburbs was not easy but it was worth the drive. The food and the drinks are fantastic! I wish I could join you but eat and drink good for me!

    October 20, 2012

  • Robi

    The event page has been updated to include the WePay link for RSVP deposits. Funds will be refunded in cash the night of the dinner. Since we are close to capacity, those who do not pay by Nov. 2nd will be moved to the waitlist.

    October 19, 2012

  • Charlette ".

    So, who's going to be the designated driver? ;-)
