Chicago Thanksgiving Week Craft Beer Calendar

Chicago Thanksgiving Week Craft Beer Calendar
First order of business is to recognize my fantastic teammates with the ChicagoNow Trivia Challenge Team #1. Say "Hey" to T.R. Slyder, Reggie Nievera, Curtis Shaw Flagg, Exavier Pope, Kelley Farrell and Kaley Mullin Once again, we pulled off a last second squeaker to beat teams from the likes of Crain's Chicago Business and WBEZ to win the AAJA-Chicago Trivia Bowl Saturday afternoon! This year we fielded a second ChicagoNow team, all of whom were new to the grind of trivia tournaments. They came in a respectable ninth. Here are my selected highlights for the week leading up to Thanksgiving. Nearly all beer venues are closed on Thanksgiving Day. I only know the Tribes Alehouse in Tinley Park and Mokena will be open, and others may be, so be certain, of course, to call ahead to your favorite venue if the turkey gets ruined. I will have a "Black Friday Weekend" calendar page up soon. Just a note: if you wanted to go to the Black Friday event at Goose Island's Clybourn brewpub, that is sold out...
