Eli’s Being Served for Father’s Day at Harry Caray’s

This Father’s Day, June 17th, the Chicago Cubs will be taking on the Boston Red Sox in the most highly anticipated series of the season. The series will mark Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein’s first match up against his former team. In honor of this interleague rivalry between two of the most storied teams in baseball, Harry Caray’s in Chicago, Rosemont, Lombard and Navy Pier will be celebrating Father’s Day with a lineup of classic food specials from Chicago and Boston. The Chicago offerings will include Shrimp de Johnge and Chicken Vesuvio, both of which were “invented” in the Windy City—Harry’s Chicken Vesuvio has been named best in Chicago by Chicago Tribune restaurant critic Phil Vettel, Time Out Chicago, the Wall Street Journal and others. A 24oz USDA Prime Rib Eye rounds out the list of Chicago favorites. The Boston specials feature fresh Cod and Lobster. Each restaurant will also be offering beer specials from Chicago and Boston’s best-known brands including Goose Island and Sam Adams along with offerings from some up-and-coming craft breweries.
If you’re going to the game, celebrate with Dad before or after—if not, Harry’s is the best place to catch all the action on our flat screen TVs. Dads at any of the three Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouses wearing either a Cubs or Red Sox logo will receive a free slice of Eli’s Chicago Style Cheesecake or Boston Cream Pie.

Eli’s Inaugural Father’s Day Bike Ride a Great Success–Thanks to our Partners, Wright College and Rudy’s Bike Shop

We had a great start to Father’s Day at Eli’s Cheesecake with our Inaugural Father’s Day Bike Ride. We had great community partners in Wright College and Rudy’s Bike Shop, fantastic bike partners in the Chicago Bicycle Federation and Mayor Daley’s Bicycle Ambassadors and a smooth, safe ride thanks to the 16th District of the Chicago Police Department and Commander Neil Sullivan.

Our thanks to Eli’s Event Chairman, Debbie Osman, who has worked tirelessly to make a day such a success and to Donna Carberry and Mary Gale, who provided so much support.

Over 100 bicycle riders start out on the 7 mile route through Wright Community, Portage Park and Norwood Park. Eli’s event chairperson, Debbie Osman, follows the police escort.

 

 

The northwest side of Chicago and the 16th District is fortunate to Commander Sullivan and the dedicated professionals on his staff. Their assistance guaranteed a safe and very enjoyable ride.

Eli’s Father’s Day Bike Ride will debut in 2005!

Each summer, value our partnership with Mayor Daley’s Bicycle Ambassadors and
the Chicago Bicycle Federation. Mayor Daley has a goal for Chicago to be the
most bicycle friendly city in America and the beginning of Spring is a great
time to start exploring the City’s neighborhoods and lakefront parks via
bike.

If you will be in Chicago over Memorial Day Weekend, don’t miss Bike the
Drive. For that Sunday morning, Lake Shore Drive is closed for its entire length
and the Chicago Bicycle Federation has both a 15 mile and 30 mile ride plan for
the day.

When I read about Bike the Drive, I wondered why we couldn’t have a bike ride
sponsored by Eli’s. Under the leadership of my associates, Debbie Osman and Mary
Gale, Eli’s Cheesecake, together with Rudy’s Cycle Shop and Wright College, are
sponsoring our first annual Father’s Day Bike Ride on Sunday, June 19th. The
description below is from the online Bike Chicago Brochure at www.bikechicago2005.org. Check it out
and come ride with us on Father’s Day.
