Last night and tonight Gibson's Restaurant is taking us back 20 years in time.  With over 3000 reservations for Monday and Tuesday nights, everyone wants to celebrate this wonderful institution's 20th anniversary!   We had our wedding rehearsal dinner here almost 20 years to the day so it holds very special memories for us. 


BFF and Hostess with the Mostest, Kathy Piccone, holding jersey from Rocky Wirtz and Bruce MacArthur in honor of their 20th anniversary.

Co-owner Peggy Lombardo told me the menu was exactly the same on this night as it was 20 years ago except for the desserts which she said initially were brought in from other places since they didn't have a pastry chef back then. 

The upstairs and downstairs were loaded with happy fans including Jack McHugh (a co-owner who started their famous photo collection with pics from his own Four Torches Restaurant), Doug Buffone, Lou Canellas, Alexi Giannoulias, Jim Riley, Whitey Pearson, Mike Wilkie, Jimmy O'Brien, Robert Murphy, Cheryl Larson, Jimmy Damon, Judd Malkin, Judge Ann Burke and Alderman Ed Burke, Gail and Bruce Mertz, Lori and Don Shroud, Dierdre and Steve Nardi, Joli Burrell, Joy Germont, Dori Wilson, Chaz Ebert,  Julie and Fred Latsko, Dennis Fitzsimons, Terry Newman and 1000's of others!  

I wish all of our friends at Gibson's a VERY HAPPY 20TH AND MAY IT NEVER END!
