Drink in the Holidays: Eggnog

My youngest brother looks forward to this time of year for one reason, and one reason alone: eggnog. As soon as it hits the shelves, he switches to the sweet stuff instead of milk, and keeps it up all the way into January.

Space is limited, so reservations are recommended; call 312-328-1198.
