Lions Awards Banquet 2020

The highlight of the month is the Lions Annual Awards Banquet, which will be held on Saturday, February 22 at Hayden Hall, 333 S Wabash (the red John Buck Company building). Hayden Hall is a beautiful, brand-new event space in the heart of the Loop and was recently featured in Chicago Eater magazine.

The evening start with a sponsored Cocktail Hour from 6-7 pm. Dinner will be served at 7 pm, and you can mix and match offerings from six different restaurants (Victory Italian, Brown Bag Seafood, Great Lakes Meat Co., Mana Food Bar (vegetarian), country BBQ, and Tacqueria deColores), as well as a dessert buffet. Awards will be presented around 8 pm, and the party will continue (at Hayden Hall) until 10 pm, and I am sure move on somewhere else for those interested.

Cutoff is 6:00 pm on Saturday the 22nd.

Note: event is a cash bar after the sponsored Cocktail Hour. Dress is semi-formal.
