Bongo Room's 25th Anniversary for the Chicago Tribune

Bongo Room’s 25th Anniversary for the Chicago Tribune

Full disclosure: I worked at the Bongo Room for much of my twenties, and it was one of the best jobs I have ever had. However, that doesn’t take away from the incredible feat of the owners, John Latino and Derrick Robles, successfully running a restaurant for 25 — count ’em, 25! – years. And it’s even more awesome when you consider they barely use social media, never run specials, and don’t give in to any sort of dining trends. Such an honor to cover this story for the Chicago Tribune.
