We’re right in the thick of everything happening downtown, from skating at the McCormick-Tribune Ice Rink at Millennium Park next to the Bean, shopping along the Mag Mile, or visiting the Winter Wonderfest at Navy Pier – whew, there’s so much to do we can’t list it all. Suffice it to say, there are lots of great opportunities to be downtown throughout the holiday season, and we hope you’ll make Emilio’s Tapas an integral part of your city experience.

BLACK FRIDAY FLAMENCO SHOWS
Friday, November 24 at Hillside

Every year, we close for Thanksgiving, then open up on Friday evening with our annual Black Friday flamenco shows. Whether you need a respite from all the shopping or you’re avoiding the stores altogether on this day, dining here and enjoying the complimentary music and dance of Spain is a great way to wind down the evening. Two shows take place during the course of the evening, and the first one begins around 6:30 p.m. Reservations are suggested, but not required, for this special festive night.
