Makor HaChaim Chinese Auction @ the Double Tree Skokie Catering By Hy Life

The event was well done overall. The linen was top notch and room was well put together. The Starbucks theme was nice without being overdone. The menu was well composed. It included a vegetable soup, sautéed veggies, coconut crusted fried chicken cutlet, grilled cicket breast with honey mustard sauce, meatballs, beef kabobs, chicken kabobs, roast potatoes, and two types of salad. The proteins were all delicious, although one of beef kabobs had a big piece of fat on it. The potatoes here bit one dimensional, bland and under cooked. Dessert ended up being a bit of a disappointment as it was pretty standard bakery fare from Breadsmith. The only entertainment this year was some background music by Ellie Cooper and I don't think anyone missed the fact that there was no major act. Overall, a great night out.
