Contingent Feastivus 2010 Thu, 10/28/10 9:47 PM (permalink)
We have made a reservation at Ilija's Place for the evening of December 12.  The exact time and details are still to be determined.
 
Space may be limited, so attendance is on a first post, first reserved basis. Starting now:

      Roadhouses for two.
       
      Any other stops during the day, or are we just doing Ilija's in the evening?

        Buddy,
         
        I'm just trying to get a head count for the reservation.  We can plan the rest of the day later, although I'd like to show up with an empty stomach.  I want to enjoy every bite I can.  Ilija will serve us family-style and the variety will be amazing.
         
        What would be a good start time at Ilija's for the Illinois end of The Contingent?
         
        Jim

                      JRP,
                      Whatever time you want to set this up will be fine with us (we are talking dinner, right?).  Only been to Ilija's once before and enjoyed it quite a bit, so I understand your desire to be "ready to eat" when we walk in the door.

                        ChiTownDiner is in for 2...and would prefer dinner to be not before 6pm...so uncivilized to dine earlier!

                            CTD - Cocktail hour begins at 5:00 with dinner to follow. If food gets served before 6:00, you can watch the rest of us eat.

                                      The current head count is 31, including many non-RoadFood friends.  Ilija said he'd cut us off at 50.

                                        I just spoke with Ilija about our dinner.  He is planning a family style meal including burek, Serbian salad, and a variety of main dishes to try.  He said he can accommodate dietary preferences if we bring them to his attention when we arrive. The cost will be $22 per person for the complete meal (including dessert by PieDiva). Seating for dinner is at 5:30, but expect a leisurely dining experience.
                                         
                                        Let me know of any change in plans so I can adjust the reservation up or down.

                                          Jim,
                                          My doctor insists I get more pork shanks into my diet. I hope Ilija can accomodate me.

                                                      I'd take one for you. I think I'm going out shopping for a video camera as we'll want to preserve that Kodak Moment forever.
