Enjoy our beautiful summer weather and start your weekend off right with a Follow Me on Friday at The Fish Keg, 2233 W. Howard (just west of Ridge) where you’ll sample some of the freshest seafood offerings in the nation. This venerable fishmonger has been owned and operated by the Hansen family since it opened its doors in our neighborhood sixty years ago.
Join us this Friday, July 8th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., at the Fish Keg Cove, an outdoor dining area next to the shop. Sample some of The Fish Keg’s offerings of fresh seafood flown in daily from around the world. And wash it down with a cold Anchor Steam beer or sip a nice glass of wine (soft drink options also available).
The Fish Keg is known citywide for its quality seafood and its prompt, friendly service. WGN-TV’s Chicago’s Best will feature The Fish Keg in its upcoming “Best Seafood” episode on Sunday, July 24th, at 10 p.m.
“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.
