Come to the Table Dinner Series: CHANGE
Tuesday, January 23, 2018, 6:30pm–9:00pm
Join us at Cruz Blanca’s Upstairs Taproom for a cocktail-style event featuring food and drink inspired by the flavors of Oaxaca, European brewing traditions of Mexico City, and locally-sourced agriculture of Chicago! CHANGE is part of every food system, and Chef Rick Bayless has pioneered numerous movements throughout his 40 years in the food industry. Chef Bayless will begin the evening by highlighting the changes to the farm-to-table movement he has helped shepherd into Chicago. Other industry pioneers will join the conversation to highlight how our eating habits have evolved and changed the local food system. Mingle with like-minded guests as you eat and drink your way through the Frontera family’s beautiful new Randolph Street restaurant and brewery.
Seasonal menus incorporate ingredients from local farms, and will be posted one week prior to the event. Email us with questions or dietary concerns. Space is limited.Each $85 ticket includes appetizers, a 3-course seated dinner, and cocktails, wine & beer provided by Chicago purveyors. Receive a discount when you buy a 3-Dinner Series Pass!
