It's been a rough summer for businesses along Broadway Avenue in Brookfield, what with the ongoing road construction that has closed traffic to the north side of the street for weeks.
Amidst that headache, however, one business got a bit of good news recently – something that will also result in some TV airtime and positive PR.
Mary's Morning Mix-Up, the restaurant at 9110 Broadway Ave., has been named Most Kid-Friendly Restaurant by the folks at "Chicago's Best," the food-centric television show that airs on Sunday nights on WGN-TV.
The "Chicago's Best" crew will be filming a segment for the show at Mary's Morning Mix-Up on Tuesday, July 23. The film crew will arrive at 10 a.m., according to a post on the restaurant's Facebook page, and will be onsite for about four hours.
Mary Vasquez, owner of the restaurant, has invited parents to bring their kids – and the little ones will get a free breakfast starting at 10 a.m. until closing time at 3 p.m.
The show featuring Mary's Morning Mix-Up is scheduled to air Aug. 25.
