downtown dining group anniversary dinner at Wishbone

dear friends--

we will have our July monthly weeknight dinner at Wishbone, 1001 w Washington, phone[masked], with tasty Cajun and Creole cuisine http://www.wishbonech... . . Wishbone was the location of our first after work dinner, 11 years ago in July 2002, and we have met there on each anniversary since. We will also be celebrating the birthdays of Uncle Dave (July 14), and Rick (July 15)--also July birthdays of newer members, Deb, Carolyn, and Bob D.

since this dinner will be in the West Loop instead of our usual northwest side locations, it will be easier for people from Indiana to come, and 5-6 Indiana folks did come last year.

Please let me know if you plan to come. reservation will be under the name of Rick Malkowski, in case you can't find us, or call my cell phone at[masked]-0428.

to make things run more smoothly, I strongly recommend that you have enough cash to pay the bill:  some restaurants don't like splitting up credit card charges.

If you have a coupon you’d like to use at this or any other dinner, please check with me first.  If I have a coupon for the whole group to use, and there is a limit of one per table, the group coupon will take priority.  If not, feel free to use yours.

hope to see you and bon appetit,

    This 11th anniversary (I can't believe it's been 11 YEARS since this group started!) dinner was spectacular. I hadn't been that involved lately, so it gave me a chance to catch up with people I've met. and meet some exciting new members and guests.

    I do have a member card for NPR in Chicago (WBEZ) that includes Wishbone for dinner. Not sure how you would you use it for a group. It is a 2 for 1.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
