Letting Dad sleep in is nice, but he needs oh-so-much-more to really “feel the love” … How about gifting him a a night out that includes a complimentary bottle of wine to take home. For this one, Dad can relax and enjoy some great food and drink!
Schaefer's is rolling out the VIP treatment for all dads for a first-ever private party on Thursday, June 23. This Father's Day "Hall Pass" party night is for Plum District purchasers, and $40 gets dad in the door. There will be several VIP guests: Brian, from Maxwell Street Trading, will pour great "brown" spirits. Sonja, from North Shore Distillery, serves up their premium products. Brad, from distributor Heritage Cellars, brings his handpicked wines to please. Granddaughter Anje Schaefer Cluxton, and North Shore native, Bill Graham, carry on the tradition.
Festivities run from 6:30 to 9 p.m., and include a variety of food, beer and wine tasting. Join the fun with a big crew of local dads.
Schaefer's is a Chicagoland institution that matches great service with a vast, but eclectic, collection of the best wines, food, brews, and distilled spirits. Now celebrating their 75th year at the same corner. Schaefer's is conveniently located by Westfield Old Orchard & just a few miles east from the Edens Expressway (I-94).
