Last chance to celebrate Seuss

Technically, Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, was born on March 2. But if you were too busy last Tuesday to whip up a batch of Green Eggs and Ham, despair not: Julius Meinl on 4363 N. Lincoln Ave. is hosting a whimsical family-style feast to celebrate the Good Doctor this Saturday, March 13, at 6 p.m.

Get your Green Eggs and Ham in the form of a green deviled egg with prosciutto. Try the Hook Nook Dogs, Nurnberger sausage with house made baked beans and smoked cheddar cheese. Have your fill of Roast Beast, whole roasted chicken stuffed with parmesan risotto. And don't forget to save room for dessert: Pink Yink Ink Drinks, Sneetch Treats, and Valley of Vung's Chocolate Rocks. (Use your imagine, as Dr. Seuss would have it, or be a big snore and visit Meinl's web site.)

The Lincoln Park/De Paul Neighborhood Choir of Chicago Children's Choir will perform -- and rumor as it the Cat in the Hat might make an appearance! Reserve tickets ($40 for adults, $20 for kids ages 12 and under) by calling 773-868-1876 opt. 5.
