How about a May date night out at Fitzgerald’s Nightclub in Oak Park and a stay at Best Western Plus Chicago Hotel at Hillside?


Fitzgerald’s Nightclub is regularly ranked in the Top Ten list of Chicagoland night spots. Where else can one go for country and western, jazz, folk and blues, with nationally known music acts nearly every single night? And Wednesdays are Classic Cocktail nights. Enjoy a beverage and some great piano jazz.

Friday, May 2, join a Dos de Mayo celebration with the culturally diverse band Rico. Rico, with two recent CDs, “Make Music” and “Casa de Tambores,” has been called a modern version of Santana. On Saturday, May 17 sing “Hey Jude” with the Beatles tribute band American English. Voted Entertainer of the Year and Best Tribute Band for three of the last four years, American English will make your family “come together.” On Saturday, May 24 enjoy a Birthday Bash for one of the queens of the blues, Vanessa Davis and her band The Blues Twisters. Vanessa has been a blues favorite since 1978, making her album debut, “One Heart,” in 1984.

Fitzgerald’s Nightclub is at 6615 Roosevelt Road in Berwyn. The club is closed on Mondays. For more information, call (708) 788-2188.
