Join us for a very special event at OPRF Museum at 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 23. Takeout 25 founder and Oak Park Village Trustee Ravi Parakkat will conduct a panel discussion with a group of area restaurant owners.

Beginning with a brief historical overview of the restaurant business in our villages to provide context and perspective for the discussion, the panel will address past challenges, the state of the restaurant industry today, and positioning our community to be Illinois’ first Green Dining District.

Tickets for this event are $25 each and include pizza provided by Betty's Pizza & Pasta in Oak Park and beer provided by Kinslahger of Oak Park. Proceeds benefit both The Historical Society of OPRF and Takeout 25. Space is limited, so sign up today in our online history store or by calling the museum at 708-848-6755.
