22 February lMA Annual Winter Luncheon

Our annual luncheon for 2020 will be at Staropolska, a Polish restaurant.

The love of mushrooms crosses all borders. This year, the IMA invites you to explore the delights of Polish cuisine with your fellow mycophiles! This event is open to IMA members, their family and friends.

Join your fellow mycophiles for a congenial meal and experience Polish cuisine at our annual banquet at Michelin Bib restaurant Staropolska on February 22, 2020. We will congregate at 11:30 pm and the meal will be served shortly thereafter. Payment of $33 in advance is required. Purchase by Credit Card to BrownPaperTickets.com online or by phone at 1-800-838-3006.

Staropolska is located at 3028-30 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60618 with metered street parking.

We hope that this banquet will be unforgettable and will be a source of beautiful memories of camaraderie and tasty delights for our club members. This will be served family style except for the soup.

Gift Raffle

The Gift Raffle has been a part of our annual luncheon since we held our first such event at Bohemian Crystal long ago. If you want, please bring a mushroom related raffle item. For the raffle/gift exchange, all gifts go into a pool and names are drawn. If you do bring a gift, you get a ticket and are guaranteed one gift in exchange. Please don’t wrap the gift, we like to see what people are winning before they win it but please do put your name on the gift so that lucky recipients know who to thank.
