The countdown to Barrington’s Homecoming Weekend has begun! Be sure to check back tomorrow because I’ll have the full rundown of events planned for parade and game day this Saturday. But I wanted to be sure to let you know about a huge Homecoming party happening all day Saturday and hosted by two BHS grads who own Chessie’s 111 Grille at The Ice House Mall.
It’s basically a big pre and post-party for Saturday’s Homecoming Parade and will take place in the restaurant’s parking lot at The Ice House Mall. There will be hundreds of Barrington High School students, alumni, their families, friends and neighbors there to celebrate. Parking is free, so you can pull in for the parade and stay for the party. And, just like last year, they’re going to be taking a big BHS alumni photo right at 12:15PM.
The hosts of the party are the restaurant’s owners, Steve and Lisa Petersen. They both graduated from Barrington High School, they own several businesses in town, including Petersen & Son Plumbing, Petersen Construction and RSVP’s 2 Bar & Restaurant. The Petersens say they can’t wait to see their fellow classmates and welcome anyone from the community to be there. The party starts at 9:30AM and lasts until close. There will be burgers, brats, beer, bloody marys and a great menu available from the kitchen and bar.
Chessie’s 111 Grille is also hosting four Barrington High School class reunions this weekend for the classes of 1955, 1965, 1970 and 1990. It is absolutely one of THE PLACES TO BE in Barrington this homecoming weekend!
Chessies’s 111 Grill is also getting ready to debut some great new menu items, which include new salads and fish entrees. They offer $5 chicken sandwiches on Mondays, $5 burgers on Tuesdays and $5 pulled pork sandwiches on Wednesdays. (all with fries) And the Petersen’s have offered this week’s prize for the winner of our “Guess Where Wednesday” contest here at 365Barrington.com.
