Thursday, 2/1, 6:30-8 PM, Dining Out in Chicago: A Breezy History from Beaubien’s Tavern to Tasting Menus
Over the past 170 years or so, Chicagoans have dined out in a myriad of settings. Indoors, outdoors, on a roof, next to the Chicago River, and in former packinghouses have been a few of the locations that have played host to a range of repasts. Chicago historian and urbanologist Max Grinnell will take patrons on a tour-du-table utilizing rare photographs, historic photographs, visual ephemera, and his own sage observations from over two decades of dining out in Chicago from Army & Lou’s to the late, great Como Inn. Brought to you in partnership with the River Forest Township.
