Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas. Starting to think about your holiday plans yet? Vista Club of Bloomington invites you to enjoy a day out on our annual Christmas trip to “The Christmas Schooner”. We will be enjoying a delicious noon meal at the magnificent Maggiano’s Italian Restaurant at their downtown Chicago location. The private room will provide the perfect backdrop to enjoy this delicious meal while visiting with Vista Club friends both old and new. Following our meal, we will drive to the Mercury Theater also in downtown Chicago where we will see their traditional Christmas show called “The Christmas Schooner” which receives rave reviews each year. This beloved tale is based on the true story of the “Rouse Simmons,” A Great Lakes Schooner whose captain risks life and limb to transport Tannenbaums (Christmas Trees) from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to Chicago’s German immigrants in the 1880’s. After the show we will take a break on the way home so you can grab a nibble or enjoy some Christmas shopping before returning home.

Fee includes: family style lunch at Maggiano’s Restaurant & all non-alcoholic drinks, the Christmas Schooner Play, transportation, taxes, and tips.
