valentines dayHappy Birthday Schaumburg!  You’re turning 60 this year on March 7, 2016 and we’re happy to celebrate with you!

In honor of your birthday year, we’re doing a monthly blog posting based on some of our favorite things about you.

During the month of February–and in celebration of Valentine’s Day–we’re asking the readers of this blog to share their favorite Schaumburg restaurant to have a romantic meal.  Maybe it’s a let’s-get-dressed-up type of establishment or maybe it’s a place where you went every week, rain, snow or shine.  Maybe it’s where you had a first date or maybe it’s where you met a future spouse.

Here is a suggestion to spark a memory or two.



If it holds fond memories for you–or you’ve just discovered it–please share your favorite spot!

    When my husband and I were dating we would go to Bennigan’s at Higgins Road and Route 53 almost every Sunday night and split a plate of nachos. This was in the mid-1980s when nachos were first coming onto the scene in restaurants and a plate of them could be split for $5 or so. It was a great–and cheap–way to end the weekend.

    Maybe not romantic but I remember as a kid my parents taking us to Down the Hatch on Roselle Road for heart shaped pizza on Valentines Day. Funny how a differently cut pizza would be cool to a kid but always remember it so I guess it was good marketing.
