Support Illinois Children in Foster Care During 2nd Let It Be Us “Be Mine” Celebration at Chicago’s Tortoise Supper Club

Barrington’s Let It Be Us invites you to join their second annual Be Mine celebration to support children awaiting adoption from foster care from 7 to 11 p.m. on Friday, February 28th. This year’s event will take place at Chicago’s Tortoise Supper Club serving steaks, chops and seafood along with live jazz Friday & Saturday nights at 350 North State Street. Click here to register today and read on for a quick tour of the Tortoise club.

Join the Be Mine fundraiser for fine food, signature cocktails, unique raffles and an exciting live auction event surrounded by Tortoise Club’s collection of historic Chicago artifacts.

In the foyer, you will find the mahogany wood from the original Pump Room. There are two ballot boxes that were used for Chicago mayoral elections from the 1920s through the 1950s. Raoul Varin Prints offer a bird’s-eye view of Chicago’s landscape during the 1880s.

You will also find an 1880s pencil sketch of great Chicagoan Andrew McNally, one of the founders of the Rand McNally Atlas company.  Peek through historic books from Chicago’s Newberry Library and enjoy caricatures by artist Chuck Senties of ten scandalous or rogue individuals who had a significant impact on Chicago history.

I'm way behind on bird photos due to posting Snake Road photos. Here's a pair of Sandhill Cranes greeting each other as one arrived to take over nest-sitting duty from the other earlier this month. I wish the photo had sound! #sandhillcrane #sandhillcranes #crane #cranes #birding #birdingphotography #birdphotography #bestbirdshots #nutsaboutbirds #nikonbirds #citizensforconservation #365barrington ...
