(CBS) — The commodore-elect of the Burnham Park Yacht Club says this past Saturday night, it was like a meteorite shower – as fiery ashes from the Redmoon Theater’s Great Chicago Fire Festival rained down on the club.
It was the New Member’s Dinner at the Burnham Park Yacht Club on Northerly Island and the evening started out so nicely, says Commodore-Elect Christopher Edmonds.
“We moved, at 6:30, quarter of 7, out onto our patio – which is outside and has an extraordinary view of the city and the harbor. And we served all of our hors d’oeuvres.
“And after that, we were to move into the dining area, which is a white tablecloth, napkin, fancy affair.”
