Looking at Lawry's

Spring 2011

Braving the Cold, Brave Americans, and Strong Family Traditions

Over 20 inches of snow can’t stop our dedicated crew in Chicago, our U.S. flag flew proudly over soldiers in Iraq, Charles Barkley stops by, and a 25-year-old family tradition stays strong.

BRRR! On February 2, with 20.2 inches of snow on the ground and more falling fast, the dedicated crew at Lawry’s The Prime Rib, Chicago, made it to work and kept the restaurant open to serve the brave, hearty (and hungry!) guests who battled through the third worst blizzard in Chicago recorded history to get to our warmth and cheer.

Lead host Dean Sucik ventured into the snow to set up our Ale & Sandwich Bar sign.

ERIC D. SCHOUREK, LTC, Infantry Task Force Stability Chief, dined with his family at Lawry’s The Prime Rib, Chicago, and took one of our U.S. flags with him to Iraq. In Lawry’s honor, the flag was flown over Baqubah, Iraq, on August 31, 2010, for Operation Iraqi Freedom and on September 1, 2010, for Operation New Dawn.

FOR MORE THAN 25 YEARS, Lawry’s The Prime Rib, Beverly Hills, has been a source of happy memories for the Villanueva family of Redondo Beach, CA. Art Villanueva celebrated his 21st birthday with us, and proposed to wife, Tina, here.

The couple made it a tradition to dine with us each Christmas, and as their children came along, they, too, became great fans of the restaurant.

Pictured enjoying Christmas dinner are Alec, 9, and Christina, 6. At Alec’s request, the family will be joining us again soon for his 10th birthday. We plan to give them some serious pampering.
