“Join The Bite Against ALS” in May!

27 04 2009

I don’t know how I’ll ever get ready for swimsuit season if I keep getting information about “eating for charity!” My newest challenge will be to make it out of May WITHOUT doubling my body weight. Of course, I’m exaggerating but the Les Turner ALS Foundation is tempting me with its “Culinary Crusade: Join The Bite Against ALS” initiative! 

Throughout the month of May, diners who visit twelve Chicago restaurants will be doing their part to donate to the fight against ALS, a neuromuscular disorder that causes muscle weakness and impaired speaking, swallowing and breathing, and eventually total paralysis and death. The funds raised will go towards supporting scientific research, ALS patient and family services, and educational and advocacy programs.

Participating restaurants are listed below. When you’re at one of these places, inquire about their “Culinary Crusade Special” for specifics on exactly how the restaurant will support the Les Turner ALS Foundation. 

Adobo Grill (2005 W. Division, Chicago)

Bluegrass (1636 Old Deerfield Road, Highland Park )

Graziano’s Brick Oven Pizza (5960 W. Touhy Ave., Niles)

Ina’s (1235 W. Randolph, Chicago)

Tuscany (1425 W. 22nd, Oak Brook)

Tuscany (550 S. Milwaukee Ave., Wheeling)

Unrefined Café (24 N. Washington, Valparaiso, Ind.)

Vinci (1732 N. Halsted, Chicago)

– Wishbone (1001 W. Washington, Chicago)

Wishbone (3300 N. Lincoln, Chicago)

Sign me up for a late weekday breakfast at Ina’s, a weekend brunch at Wishbone, and happy hour fajitas and margaritas at Adobo Grill. Have any of you guys ever been to the other places on the list?
