It seems like only yesterday that Denise McGowan Tracy and Beckie Menzie debuted a little musical showcase known as Monday Night Live. Since that first evening in September of 2007, more than 700 singers have graced the Petterino’s stage. Many of these have been talented amateurs, and just as many have been special guests from local and national theatrical productions. Past seasons have brought perfomers from the Lyric Operia, Porchlight Music Theatre, and many more from known productions such as Jersey Boys, Wicked, Sweeney Todd, Grease, and Dirty Dancing.
Now in their 9th season, Denise and Beckie are back every Monday (mostly). They will probably sing a few songs and maybe tell a few stories. The format is always impromptu, and you never know quite what to expect.
Monday Night Live:
As always, audience members can dine on the extensive Petterino’s menu, and avail themselves of the MNL special menu. There is no cover charge for the entertainment. There is a $19.95 food and beverage minimum, and $7 discounted valet parking is available after 7:00 PM. Reservations are strongly encouraged and can be made by calling 312-422-0150.
Start your Sunday visit downtown with Petterino’s brunch, the perfect prelude to a walk in Millennium Park, a matinee or a tour of the city.
Begin with a lively libation, such as a Champagne Mimosa or an Old King Cole Bloody Mary; our specialty coffee drinks and freshly squeezed juices are also always on hand. Dine on brunch specialties like a decadent Short-Rib Benedict or our California Omelette bursting with farm-fresh vegetables. Finish your meal with our signature Dessert Trolley, filled with pastries and treats that are baked daily in our bakeshop.
