Eat your way into history

Eat your way into history this summer

Local restaurants have once again come together to support community history by doing what they do best, feeding you.  During the month of August, residents can support the Mount Prospect Historical Society simply by eating at two local restaurants.

“This is a great program in which people can benefit the community, and themselves, in a number of ways,” says Greg Peerbolte, executive director of the Society.  “We understand that many families are cutting back these days, and dining out and making charitable contributions are among the first things on the list to go.  Our restaurant days are a great way to enjoy doing both without any added energy or expense.  In addition, many of the participating dining establishments are locally owned.”

Local establishments will donate a portion of the money spent to the Historical Society.  Customers will pay the exact same amount, so it’s no additional cost to help a favorite local cause.  All that has to be done is to go on the right day and either bring a coupon or mention the Society.

Mount Prospect History Day has been designated as Sunday, August 2.  If you are a fan of homemade treats, you can begin you week by visiting at the Lions Club Farmers’ Market. The Board of directors will be selling their baked goods that day and you can also purchase museum store items and listen to presentations throughout the morning by Executive Director Greg Peerbolte.

The first restaurant stop on the philanthropic culinary tour is Steak ‘n Shake Restaurant on Tuesday, August 4th, located at 201 E. Euclid Ave., in Mount Prospect, and enjoy their famous steakburgers and shakes.  Bring in a coupon, found on our website, before or after the annual dodgeball tournament hosted by the River Trails Park District and Mount Prospect Police Department.

Enjoy your meal at Boulevard Caffé-Lounge, located at 143 West Prospect Ave., on Wednesday, August 19th.  Serving authentic Eastern European fare, the Boulevard is open from 11-am until 10 pm.  A coupon is available on our website or mention that you support the MPHS.
