Are you ready for this? The all-you-can-eat buffet will be piled with Louisville-style fare, including bacon-cheddar hushpuppies, pulled-pork sliders, three types of deviled eggs, ham and biscuits, Hot Brown sandwiches — yep, we’re still going — corn pudding, cheesy garlic grits, and Kentucky Derby pie with pecans and chocolate. Your welcome cocktail is on the house; then, belly up to the cash bar for Southern-style sips including mint juleps.
Don’t get too tipsy, though — you’ll want to place your bets wisely. You can buy three bets for $10, and one winner will get a $100 gift card to Chicago q and a basket of the restaurant’s homemade goodies, including sauces, rubs, and pickles. There’s also a prize for best hat. Tickets must be purchased in advance, so quit horsing around and head to this website, stat.
Chicago q, 1160 North Dearborn Street (at Division Street); 312-642-1160.
