Chicago's first ever BYOB Lassi bar & breakfast wraps brunch will take place tomorrow at Bombay Wraps. Hosted by Chicago native and MasterChef contestant Suzy Singh, this brunch will be the first in a monthly occurring event.

The Lassi bar and breakfast wraps brunch special will be available from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Bombay Wraps is located at 122 N Wells St. (312) 739-9727
