Outdoor Engagement Party Spot??

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!

    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...

      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/
