The team at NCAH had a mystery field trip. We all met at the hospital on a Wednesday afternoon when we were closed, and no one knew where we were going. To keep us guessing we all took the CTA Brown Line to get there. Not even the DVMs were privy to what we were going to do!
Our destination turned out to be The Chopping Block in Lincoln Square! The NCAH team learned new cooking techniques, prepared a meal, and then proceeded to eat it. The food was delicious. It included seared chicken breast, risotto, and a fresh watercress and radish salad. There was also a strawberry rhubarb crunch for dessert.
This was a great way to get out of the hospital and have a fun time learning and working together on something other than hospital business. Special thanks to our representative Shannon at BI and Chris at McKeon Veterinary Consultants for their help in planning and funding this outing.
Here is a photo gallery documenting our evening. As you can tell by the pictures, a great time was had by all.
