Friday Night Pre-Party Get Together

6:30 PM to Midnight

Why plan a 50th reunion and limit it to one night?  Friday night October 5, 2018 will be our optional pre-reunion get together.  It’s a chance for out-of-towners as well as those of us who are still in the Chicago area to get together, socialize and catch up before the big bash on Saturday night.

We selected an establishment that would be conducive to conversation, some tasty food, libations (if you so choose), and convenient to the Hampton Hotel that we have chosen.  Granite City met all criteria!

Located at 801 Plaza Dr. in Schaumburg, it is literally next door to the Hampton Hotel!  If you are staying at the hotel, there is no need for a car or an Uber to attend (or get home from) this event ????.

Granite City is “a polished casual American restaurant featuring fresh, high-quality menu items prepared from made from scratch recipes”.  They also feature craft beers which are brewed on site as well as having a full bar.  The restaurant is approximately three-years-old, and is modern and comfortable.  We will have a separate space to allow for mingling and conversation.  Additionally, there will be a well-stocked appetizer bar with more than enough food to satisfy any appetite. 

The event will begin at 6:30 PM on Friday evening, and the appetizer buffet will be available from 7 PM until 9 PM.  A cash bar will be available throughout the evening.  The space will be available to us until Midnight (last call 11:30PM).

Dress for the evening is as casual as you are comfortable with ????.

The cost for the evening is $35 per person.
