Hi Hounds!
I'm planning an engagement party in Chicago in August, coming from NYC. Anyone have suggestions for fun outdoor places with cocktails and food?

Should be nice but not over the top- we still have a wedding to pay for!
Thanks!

    I'm not sure how many people you are planning for but Enoteca Roma has a beautiful backyard garden. If you have 6 or more guests they will put together a full tasting menu for $25 a person. I did this once for a friend's birthday and they brought out a charcuterie tray, bruschette, salads, pizze and paste. They brought as much as we wanted and it was really a fun way to celebrate.

    Here's a link to their website: http://www.enotecaroma.com/

      Here is a list that was in this week's Reader (our free weekly newspaper).
      I'm sure if anything on this list strikes your fancy, somebody here can give you an opinion...
