DARIEN – Hurricane Gumbo and Chuck’s BBQ are teaming up for the grand opening of Chuck’s brand new Darien location on Aug. 8.

The new location at 8025 South Cass Ave. will allow residents in the Southwest suburbs to partake in Chuck’s award-winning BBQ and Cajun fare.

Chicago’s Hurricane Gumbo combines zydeco, rhythm and blues, jazz and funk to create Louisiana party music. Through an energetic mix of originals and cover material, the eight-piece group has performed together for more than 10 years at festivals and clubs throughout the Midwest, including the House of Blues in Chicago, Milwaukee’s Summerfest and the Taste of Chicago.

The Darien Chamber of Commerce along with Mayor Kathleen Weaver will also join Chuck's for a ribbon cutting ceremony at 5 p.m. Hurricane Gumbo’s first set kicks off at 6 p.m.
