Saturday is usually our night to eat out. We love trying new restaurants or exploring fun new spots. This past Saturday we headed to Rock the Block, a block party in downtown Lake Zurich, and it was a blast.
There were food trucks, drinks, bands and bounce houses. We really enjoyed the small tacos from Taquero Fusion in Skokie, but our friends raved about the barbeque nachos from Smokin' T's Barbeque in Long Grove. There was also Chicago Cupcake, Beelow's Steakhouse and Chaser's Sports Bar and Grill.
The only complaint? It was a bit too well-attended. Food and drink lines were long and it was hard to keep track of the kids. Event organizers admitted turnout was much better than they expected.
Good for the organizers (Lion's Club) for trying to bring events downtown. It was a fun night, and I'm sure there were will be a repeat next year. We'll be back for sure.
