Brunch & Oak Brook Polo

Best Kept Secrets of the Suburbs!

Although we love Chicago, Brittany and I grew up in the
suburbs, and it will always have that sense of “home” for us!  We love
the ease of parking and all that the suburbs have to offer! We’ve
found that there are some secret places to visit, but we’re here to
share all of our secrets with you!

 Sunday Brunch at The Clubhouse in Oak Brook

Sunday Brunch:
10 AM-2 PM
Adults: $33.95
Children 6-12: $13
Children under 5: Free
Drink Specials:
Champagne & Mimosa: $4
Champagne Cocktails: $5
Blood Mary’s: $6
There are so many options to choose from!  We started with the Egg
Benedict and then headed to the made-to-order omelet section!  If
you’re lucky, Omar will flip your omelet in slow-motion for you!  The
omelets were incredible!  Omar filled it with lots of cheese, and it
tasted really good!  I also tried the prime rib from the carving
station (turkey also).
After that, we tried the crab legs, oysters, and shrimp from the
seafood section.  Brittany and I also tried the mac & cheese, chicken
tenders, and PB&J tea party sized sandwiches!
They also had chicken parmesan, Chicken Piccata, a few different
pasta, and a large cold salad section.
After we tried a variety of amazing things, we sampled the Crème
Brulee (it’s out of this world!)  and chocolate mousse cake with a cup
of Lavazza coffee (which is also included in the brunch price).
Before we left, we dipped strawberries, marshmallows, and Rice Krispy
treats into the chocolate fountain!
I wish I was able to sample everything!  But we will just have to go
back and visit again!
We even joined the Clubhouse Valued  Member program!  There’s really no
reason not to join!  It cost $20, but  your Clubhouse Rewards Card is loaded with
 $25.  (So you get a bonus $5 just by signing up).
The real bonus is that twice a year, (your birthday month, and the
anniversary month when you opened the card) you get $50 off when you
spend $75.  Also, Sunday is double point day, meaning you get 2 points
for every $1 you spend.
It’s worth it alone if you visit again during your birthday month,
and take a friend to Sunday Brunch!
We had such a fun time at brunch!  The food was so good, and the
service was wonderful!  Every time we left our table, our waiter Frank
would give us new napkins!  We could not be more satisfied with the
experience, so much that we are planning on when we can go again!
The second Clubhouse Restaurant opened about 8 months
ago in Schaumburg, IL.  We have yet to visit, although they also offer
the fabulous Sunday Brunch!

Attend a Match at Oak Brook Polo Club

Brittany went to her first match in 1986, when Prince Charles came to
Oak Brook to play polo!
It has really been a family tradition ever since!  Our mom loved going
to the matches, and she reminded us when we came back to town!  She
said, “There’s polo this Sunday!”
Luckily I’ve been collecting a variety of fascinators over the last few months!
Polo is such a fun way to spend Sunday afternoon.  It’s a fun and
relaxed environment, where you  get dressed up,
meet new people, and watch this really fun and fast paced game on
horseback.
Announcer Rob Wilkinson likes to describe polo as “hockey on
horseback”!  It’s a blast to watch!  These players
maneuver their horses and do quick stops and turns and hit the ball
all at the same time!  We’re super impressed with their ability to
multitask!
