Chicago Sky Mascot 'Sky Guy' to Appear at The Grand Dec. 15
Sky Guy, the official mascot of the Chicago women's professional basketball team Chicago Sky, will meet his fans at the Grand Food Center in Winnetka from 12:30-1:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 15.
It's worth noting that the Chicago Sky played its first, 2012 pre-season game at New Trier High School last May. The professional women's basketball season runs from May-September.
Along with Sky Guy's visit, The Grand will feature a "Taste of the Holidays" sampling party for shoppers from 11am-4 pm. Shoppers are invited to sample appetizers and other items provided by a dozen select vendors.
The tasting event will also feature a visit from Santa Claus, who will listen to children's Christmas wishes from noon-3 p.m.
While Santa and Sky Guy keep the children occupied, shoppers will be able to take part in a large seafood sale that is planned. Special pricing will include cooked shrimp (16-20 ct.) for $14.99; 6-9 ct. King Crab Legs for $36.99; and pound-sized lobster tails for $34.99.
