Bears Brunch @ Gioco

In one of those rare instances where it pays more to drive to brunch rather than just stumbling around the corner to wherever someone will cook you eggs the fastest, Gioco offers a $10 all-day (or all-game) valet service for brunch-goers heading to the game. Stop in for the Italian South Loop eatery's "creative American brunch" (piatto tradizionale include pancakes and stuffed french toast), leave your car in their good hands and walk to Soldier Field. This week, Bears and Broncos! 9am to 2pm, 1312 S. Wabash, call 312.939.3870 for details, or click here to make a reservation online.
