Nando's PERi-PERi, the South African-Portuguese restaurant known worldwide for its spicy flame-grilled chicken, hatches its fourth Chicago restaurant Saturday Nov. 21 at 22 S. Wabash Avenue. For the first two days of operation, Chicago Fire players will take over the grills and deliver succulent PERi-PERi chicken to fans gathered at Nando's new Loop location. Nando's will donate 100 percent of sales on Sat. Nov. 21 and Sun. Nov. 22 to the Chicago Fire Foundation, which works to enhance the lives of disadvantaged youth in and around Chicago.
Fire players scheduled to appear at Nando's include defender Eric Gehrig, midfielders Chris Ritter, Michael Stephens and Matthew Watson, and Fire great and club ambassador Gonzalo Segares. They will increase the heat at Nando's on Wabash from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm CT and 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm CT on Nov. 21 and Nov. 22.
