Nearly a year ago, sc asked about Belgian food in Chicago. There are no Belgian restaurants but Ive been informed (gracias señor!) the Chicago Beer Society will be sponsoring Belgian Day on Sunday, June 9 at Clark Street Ale House (the old Stop and Drink whose sign still hangs). Im not a member and have never attended one of these events. Just passing on the information. Heres a little bit from their website, chibeer.org:
Join us at the Clark Street Ale House, 742 N. Clark St., Chicago, for an afternoon of Belgian-style ales and delectable Belgian foods (mussels steamed in beer, cheeses, sausage & Kip-Kap) from 1-5 pm. Price is $25 for members, $30 for nonmembers, paid in advance. At the door, it's $5 (fidollars) more ($30/$35). As usual, there will be lots of food and beer. Also as usual, this will be an entirely non-smoking event open to anyone 21 or older. So, come for a celebration of all things Belgian and also enjoy the luxury of having a great beer bar (and outdoor beer garden) all to ourselves.
