VIP Event at Old Chicago!--Giveaway

I don't know about you, but my family loves Old Chicago! My girls like to eat pizza while my husband and I love to try unique beers that we normally wouldn't buy. What's better than pizza for the kids and beer for the adults?!

Old Chicago in Eden Prairie will be the first Old Chicago in the nation to undergo a rebranding for the company. What does this mean? It is getting a new look and a new menu! Don't worry, they will still have a fabulous beer menu, it's just going to be bigger and better! This rebranding for Old Chicago is meant to help the restaurant "stay true to it's roots of handmade pizzas and craft beers while expanding appeal to a wider audience."

 According to the press release,
"The Old Chicago menu has been revamped to shine the spotlight on the restaurant’s commitment to crafted, 'craveable' items. Among the new menu changes, a new tavern-style thin crust will be introduced to complement the existing deep dish pizzas, and the restaurant will nearly double its salad selection with a combination of chopped and tossed salads all with homemade dressings. Eden Prairie residents may also choose from seven new appetizers, three new soups, a line of Panini sandwiches and an expanded pasta section, all cooked to order. The restaurant will also introduce several new healthier items such as a Portobello Fresco Sandwich and Roasted Tomato & Basil Fettuccine."
Can't wait to try some of this new stuff!  Do you think I can get my kids to steer away from the pizza?  Probably not.  Go ahead, get a sneak peak at Old Chicago's awesome new menu!

For mom and dad:
"Similar to the updated food menu, Old Chicago will unveil a new draft system with 36 taps that ensure the highest quality beer delivery system available today. The restaurant also will host exclusive brewery events and pre-release beers. To ensure that everyone get the most out of their beer experience, Old Chicago has put a number of its bartenders though a Cicerone certification program, a program that allows them to take on the role of a beer sommelier. The restaurant has also developed a comprehensive “Beer Guide” that lists all the restaurant’s beer offerings and includes user-friendly icons that describe the flavor components of each beer to help guests make the perfect selection every time."
Here's Old Chicago's updated beer menu!  I love that they've got symbols to help me decide which one I want to try!
