Chicago Speakeasies in the Gorge
 
Harkening back to Prohibition-era speakeasies, a few local restaurants have joined with Chicago, Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association's latest Stages production, to provide a discount to restaurant patrons attending a performance who know the magic word, "Chicago."
 
"It's a fun way to encourage the idea of dinner and a show," said director Bruce Ludwig. "The musical is set in the 1920s, a time of secret jazz clubs and gin joints. If you're coming to see Chicago and you're at a participating restaurant, tell your server the word 'Chicago' for the specific discount that restaurant is offering." Even the Hood River Hotel has joined in, with 10 percent off rooms and $1 off a beer or glass of wine in their bar.

Ayutlense Family Mexican Restaurant– 10 percent off the bill
