Old Chicago Pizza and Tap Room Katy

So last week I did a few things that I do not typically do.  I went to a franchise restaurant in the burbs *gasps*  Hear me out before you hit the unsubscribe button though.  After being invited a couple of times to check out the new Old Chicago location in Katy, I decided to take their team up on their offer.  Their enthusiasm about Old Chicago was contagious so I broke a few of my normal Black Girls Who Brunch stipulations and tried it.  Plus I had fond memories of splurging on meals at Old Chicago while in college in Missouri, [...]
