St. Valentine’s Day . . . Massacre?

Submitted by on February 14, 2017 – 7:55 amNo Comment

Al CaponeYes, indeed, Road Trips Foodies. St. Valentine’s Day means something entirely different in the Windy City.

Instead of celebrating Valentine’s Day with a rather typical, traditional, romantic evening for two, go back in time today and celebrate Chicago history.

Raised, An Urban Rooftop Bar, 1 West Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois, will take guests back in time to the fateful evening of February 14, 1929, with a St. Valentine’s Day Massacre -themed Chef’s Dinner. Think: gangster.

According to the History Channel, “Gang warfare ruled the streets of Chicago during the late 1920s, as chief gangster Al Capone (pictured, above left) sought to consolidate control by eliminating his rivals in the illegal trades of bootlegging, gambling and prostitution. This rash of gang violence reached its bloody climax in a garage on the city’s North Side on February 14, 1929, when seven men associated with the Irish gangster George ‘Bugs’ Moran, one of Capone’s longtime enemies, were shot to death by several men dressed as policemen.”

The evening begins with a cocktail reception at 5 p.m. with specialty cocktails such as The Scofflaw which originated in 1924 in Paris, France; The Gin Rickey, created in 1903, and a timeless classic, The Side Car, which was invented shortly after World War I. (There will be no gunfire at any time.)

As soon as the cocktail reception ends, guests will be seated for dinner. If there are any tickets left for this evening, they are $65 per person and available online.
