2135 W. Roscoe
The cheerful staff and decor at Victory's Banner, the vegetarian breakfast and lunch place that devotees of guru Sri Chinmoy run in Roscoe Village, make a meal there a uniquely peaceful experience. To cultivate those good vibes later in the day, the restaurant offers a free meditation series; the goal of the classes is to encourage participants to meditate for both relaxation and as spiritual "preventative medicine." Each four-session series is cumulative; to get the full benefit plan to attend all four. The next course starts Tuesday, September 19, from 7 to 8:30 PM and continues Thursday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Call to register or find out about future sessions. The meditation studio is behind the Victory's Banner bookstore a block west of the restaurant; use the south entrance.
