"Dad loves 'tsokolate tablea' -- it's traditional Filipino hot chocolate, made from single-origin pure cacao beans from regions in the Philippines, that are dried, roasted, and ground, then formed into tablets or discs. It is a heavenly, rich, thick bittersweet chocolate drink, worthy of celebration every single time it finds itself in Dad’s mug. My dad doesn't drink alcohol. And this is more interesting than Coca-Cola."
- Ria Neri, Cicerone at Bangers & Lace
"My dad's favorite drink is the King of Beers: Budweiser. I have vivid memories of getting my dad beers from the fridge during a Chicago Cubs game, a Bears game, a Bulls game. Ice cold, easy drinking -- it's a memory of great times with my old man."
- Dale Talde, executive chef at TALDE, Pork Slope, Thistle Hill Tavern
