From the Inbox: Hall-of-Famer Frank Thomas opens 35 Sports Bar & Grill in Berwyn

I may be a die-hard Cubs fans, but I'm truly a huge baseball fan at heart and make sure to see at least one game on the south side each year, too. It made me happy to hear about a new sports bar opened by a legendary former White Sox player. How can you not love a charismatic hall-of-famer like Frank Thomas? Looking forward to trying it out soon. Read all the details below:

Frank Thomas Opens 35 Sports Bar & Grill in Berwyn 
The “Big Hurt” Has Big Plans for His Latest Venture

BERWYN, IL (November 21, 2017)— Hall-of-Famer Frank Thomas is pleased to announce the grand opening of his latest venture, 35 Sports Bar & Grill.
The expansive bar and restaurant is located in a landmark building at 6801 Cermak Road in downtown Berwyn. Thomas was among of a group of investors who bought the building and an adjacent parcel over three years ago. The group teamed up with Berwyn’s Buona Companies to help re-concept the space and develop the menu.

“I love Chicago sports and admire every athlete at any level who gives it their all,” says Frank Thomas, Owner and Brand Ambassador for the Chicago White Sox. “35 is a place where my fellow fans can gather to eat, drink and share in the thrill of competition and the pursuit of glory.”

35 Sports Bar celebrates Frank’s legendary performances as number 35 – the venue features 35 beers on tap (including a variety of local craft selections, many of which are rotated seasonally) and 35 state-of-the-art TVs with zoned sound broadcasting sporting events from every corner of Chicago – and around the world.
Frank is actively involved in the restaurant, having been instrumental in the restaurant’s design and menu creation. Diners will see Frank in and around the restaurant with friends and family as the venue is both his refuge for sports-watching and a place for community outreach in his capacity as an official White Sox brand ambassador.
35 Sports Bar & Grill is a comfortably modern space while maintaining the historic exterior of the building. The menu features elevated bar food made from scratch with fresh ingredients. Some of Frank’s favorites include:

·     The BIG HURT Burger – Bacon, grilled onions, cheddar cheese, fried egg, pickle Loaded Pub Fries
·     Jumbo Wings & Beer Battered Tenders with served with Big Hurt Sauce. Other options include Buffalo, BBQ, Sriracha or Garlic Parmesan Sauce
·     BBQ Pot Roast Grilled Cheese – Cheddar, Gouda, BBQ sauce
·     Donut Ice Cream Sandwiches – five sandwiches made with homemade donuts, vanilla bean ice cream, topped with hot fudge or caramel

Total seating capacity is 126, with the bar accommodating 18 guests, and private event space for 16 to 30 people.
