I've mentioned it briefly in the news and notes columns and in the comments section, but I'm having a spur-of-the-moment, low-key sort of gathering to talk Cubs and whatever else if anyone is interested.
I'll be hanging out this Saturday around 7 pm at Fat Duck, 7218 Madison St. in Forest Park. Why Fat Duck? Because they've got great burgers (and good food overall), a great local beer list, and an excellent whiskey selection from small batch bourbons and ryes to good single malt scotches. Great food, drink, and Cubs! That works for me.
Another good reason.... It's easily accessible from the L. It's a few blocks south of the Green Line Harlem Station (there's also a Metra Station that stops there) and about 3 blocks north of the Harlem Blue Line stop. For drivers, it's just a few blocks north of the Harlem exit on the 290. If you need more specific directions, feel free to e-mail me.
Also, (H/T to reader BradS) the banner above the bar says Duck Fat...which used to be the name. Duck Fat, Fat Duck..it's all the same place!
I hope you can make it!
