In addition to these magnificent machines, this annual fundraiser features a great Italian buffet and wine, great family fun including live music and children’s games, and, best of all, two great causes – Children’s Memorial Hospital and Inspiration Corporation. It’s also just about the only time when folks would actually rather be outside the restaurant rather than in.
The Italian Village Restaurants is located at 71 W. Monroe Street. 11am to 2pm. $30 (children 6 and under are free). 312/332-7005.
