Whether your team is the Blackhawks, the Bears, the Packers, the Cubs, or the White Sox, food has a way of bringing people together.
For Charles Bidwell III, Wilmette resident and owner of Stormy's Tavern and Grille in Northfield, seeing those familiar faces, family friends and family members has been the most rewarding part of opening Stormy's, which has been roaring with the laughter and cheers of sports fans since October.
Charles, his son Chad Bidwell and Pete Murray are the men behind the complete remodeling of the tavern formerly known as Seul's. The remaining artifacts are the wooden walls, the benches and one menu staple: the reuben.

On December 18, 2011 over $7,000 was raised and presented to the Tracy Dort-Kyne fund by Stormy's Tavern and Grille in Northfield. Tracy Dort-Kyne is a family member of Darren Pang (ex-Blackhawk player and current NHL announcer) who experienced a serious accident. Tracy sustained a permanent neck injury while training for a bicycle competition, rendering her a quadriplegic.
Stormy's Tavern and Grille, friend of Darren Pang, provided prizes such as a signed Blackhawks Jersey, Blackhawks game tickets and more in efforts to raise the money.
For additional information or those interested in helping, a Trust Fund for Tracy has been set up to support her long-term care and the care of her 3 boys. Visit www.tracydortkyne.com
