Please join me to celebrate the holiday season and Follow Me on Friday to an old standby–Leona’s! Located at 6935 N. Sheridan (at the corner of Sheridan and Morse), Leona’s has been a neighborhood staple for nearly 30 years.
I will be hanging out there this Friday, December 4th, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. noshing on a variety of pizzas, bruschetta, garlic bread, chicken noodle and hearty minestrone soups. They are also offering a complimentary beer, wine or soft drink.
Bring the family! Leona’s offers a “Kids Corner,” a room where your kids can watch a movie and be entertained while you relax and enjoy your meal. It was a great amenity for me when my kids were young. They could run around and blow off steam in a safe room while my wife and I waited for our meal to be served.
Leona’s is under new ownership and they are anxious to introduce themselves to the community! For those of you who want to stay home and dine, you should know that Leona’s is offering 15% off when you order online. Check it out:
But please don’t stay indoors. The holidays are a time to mix and mingle, so I hope to see you at Leona’s this Friday!
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
