time-honored tradition of Chicago press clubs, IPCC offers a mid-day sanctuary for the
world-weary, solace for the stressed or shy, a bistro for the bored, a bit of bonhomie
for the beleaguered.

of the day, every day.
The Sidney Reilly Society
Wednesday lunches offer
special treat for those interested in history, espionage and intrigue.
After lunch, the Sidney Reilly Society presents scholarly (and not-so-scholarly) toasts to
notable personages from the life and times of Reilly, Ace of Spies. Some of the toasters are
ex-spooks themselves (or at least a bit spooky).
Non-members are welcome
to try the club before joining.
No appointment or invitation is required
-- just show up any Wednesday or Friday at noon.
The only requirement for visitors is an open
mind, a sense of humor and an appetite, preferably in that order.
