Runners’ Rewards: BBQ, Brunch and Dollar Beers
Runners can enjoy an amazing southern style brunch to refuel after the grueling 26.2 mile run. While you don’t have to be a runner to enjoy their brunch, but they are rewarding runners with select beers for a penny if they bring their Chicago Marathon Bib! In addition diners can enjoy $5 Mimosas and Bloody Marys. Porkchop is a restaurant and bar that dishes out an urban interpretation of Southern comfort food and BBQ accompanied by whiskey and ice cold beer.

Brunch for the Runners, Lunatics, Lovers and Poets
Enjoy one of the city’s best brunches at Randolph Street’s The Lunatic, The Lover & The Poet (“The Lunatic”). Brunchers can enjoy a sandwich made with prosciutto from the Herb and Kathy Eckhous farm in Norwalk, Iowa served with a fried egg and cheddar cheese on a croissant…or indulge the Lunatic’s take on French Toast – a delicious dish with raspberry cream cheese stuffed brioche. Bring in a bib and get a glass of bubbly! The Lunatic is a bar and bistro that is noted for its superior wine list and inventive menu. The concept, inspired by the three character facets explored in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, is a neighborhood gathering place that serves brunch, lunch and dinner.
