Chicago Force BBQ 2017

Friday, July 21st, 2017

For those around since the prequels, I used to host an annual BBQ at my house in Streamwood. Now, having moved yet again, I have the space and means to restart this tradition.

I’ll have the usual grilled eats, such as burgers and chicken. I’ll just ask for my guests to post on the Facebook invite, what kind of side or beverage you can bring to share. And, if you do remember the old barbecues….NO CHIPS!! – Mark

When: August 5th, 3 p.m.

Where: Carol Stream, IL
