Backyard Dinner: Bang Bang Pie is a neighborhood staple, just about a 15 minute walk west from Ray's, and they're throwing a benefit for a great cause this Sunday September 18th from 6-8pm. Local eats, cocktails, beer, and music will all combine to provide a great evening supporting Growing Home - an agricultural nonprofit. Check out more details at growinghomeinc.org (Tickets are $75 so make your significant other pay for it if you got in a fight this week and they lost)
Andersonville City Made Fest: Sticking with the local theme this weekend, Andersonville is highlighting beer, goods, and music that all hail Chicago as their home. Breweries include Half Acre, Revolution, Empirical, and Right Bee Cider, so come thirsty - the weather is supposed to be lovely. Saturday and Sunday Noon-9pm on Clark st between Argyle and Berwyn
Bucktown 5K: Feel like having a more active weekend? The Bucktown 5K is this Sunday at 830am and runs right through the neighborhood. Work off all that beer you had on Saturday.
And as always, keep Ray's in mind for next time your family is in town, or a staycation/vacation depending on where you call home. We serve local Ham & Bacon from Jake's Country Meats, and harvest our own herbs for our breakfasts right outside the back door!
