Upcoming Events: Burgoo & Sweetest Day

Sunday, October 13: Burgoo
Our neighboring town of Utica attracts thousands of visitors from near and far to visit craft and flea market vendors.  And, like its namesake, the big draw is the Burgoo, a secret recipe of stew that combines a variety of meats, vegetables and spices.  It is then cooked overnight in giant kettles and served the following day.
Feel free to avoid the hustle and bustle of the day... or stop out and see us afterward!  We may not have any special stew, but we'll be serving up all your favorites!
Saturday, October 19:  Sweetest Day
A holiday originating in Cleveland, the first Sweetest Day was celebrated October 8, 1921.  Its original intent was to offer candy to orphans, old folks, and the poor.  Today, we celebrate with "sweet gestures" toward our loved ones.  Sweetest Day falls on the third Saturday each October.
So be sure to treat your sweet this year with a nice meal at the Uptown!  We recommend a reservation on a busy Saturday night, so give us a call at 815.224.4545.
