Tuna Poke from SPiN Chicago

Tuna Poke

You may think of ping pong as the sport you played as a kid, but this also means you haven’t been to SPiN, which provides fun for the whole family … parents and children alike! The ping pong social club co-founded by Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon is located in the heart of River North, offering an awesome (and chic!) place to pong around with family and friends while indulging in farm-to-table fare (and craft cocktails for the adults!).
I recently visited SPiN with my family for some fun pong play, followed by a delicious dinner for some refueling. Today, I’m sharing SPiN’s Tuna Poke with you – hope you enjoy!
