It was My pleasure to create the first ever Mike Kara Presents... Holiday Food Tasting at Shanahan's of Woodridge.

Last Year I was planning on putting on a little cooking segment at a restaurant, which will remain nameless. The segment fell through on the guy of that restaurant end of it. I was really dissappointed, so I had decided I needed a better plan of attack for this year.

What started out as a little food tasting, turned into The Queen Elizabeth II Holiday Food Tasting. That in almost all part was due to Rich Moore and the staff of Shanahans. I really appreciated the awesome Holiday Food Tasting that Rich put on.

I provided the guest list and Rich did the rest. When I was standing there in front of all My friends, including Rich Moore, it really felt like the Holidays. The respect and cooperation from Rich Moore and Shanahan's was a prime example of the Christmas Spirit. And boy, Shanahan's, at both locations, puts on a heck of alot of Christmas Parties. I may put one on in the future there, however what I just filmed was very close to a Holiday Party.

Shanahan's is a great place to eat, for a quick beer or just a time for fellowship with good friends. Shanahan's is place You can go and always feel welcome. Shanahan's is the type of place, You can go to, if You just get off of I-355 and looking for a friendly spot.
