DOUG EDDINGS INVITED TO GET BEHIND A DIFFERENT KIND OF PLATE

Famous Chicago Eatery Welcomes Now Infamous Ump

CHICAGO (October 14, 2005) - Umpire Doug Eddings, who made the controversial dropped third strike call in Game 2 of the ALCS, will assuredly not receive a warm welcome from Angels' fans tonight in Game 3.

To make him feel a bit more comfortable, one Chicago restaurant is inviting him to dinner… indefinitely. In the Chicago tradition of "you take care of me, I'll take care of you," Uno Chicago Grill® is giving Doug a clear sign: free dinner for as long as the Sox keep winning.

Uno Chicago Grill, creator of Chicago's Original Deep Dish Pizza®, has agreed to host Doug at any Uno Chicago Grill restaurant nationwide through the Sox title run.

On top of that, if the Sox win the series, Uno will happily treat Doug to a steak dinner every week until the end of 2005. The offer is being called a "Dropped Third Steak Dinner."

Based in Boston, Uno Restaurant Holdings Corp. currently has a system of more than 200 company-owned and franchised full-service units. Uno Chicago Grill restaurants are located in 32 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, South Korea and the United Arab Emirates. The company also operates a consumer foods division which supplies airlines, movie theaters, hotel restaurants, and supermarkets with both frozen and refrigerated private-label foods and branded Uno products.
