No napkins. No silverware. Yes aprons.
Join us for our second annual Beefsteak Banquet on Wednesday June 13th. What’s a Beefsteak, you ask?
“It’s described a feast of epic proportions known simply as a “Beefsteak.” A rite of gluttony that waged war on the livers of politicians and gangsters alike, the Beefsteak thrived in the saloons and political halls of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The menu was always the same — sliced steak served on toast, au jus or gravy, and all the beer you could drink*. Knives, forks, plates and napkins were forbidden. The life of the party was the guest who let out the most appreciative grunts, drank the most beer, and consumed the most steak. Sadly, the practice died out after World War II.”
Sounds like a great idea, so we’re bringing it back. All-you-can-eat tenderloin/filet mignon, with some other beef, pork, sausage, and other meat-based options (sorry vegetarians). Every Beefsteak’er will take home a custom apron too! This will be a ticketed event (ticket link coming next week). Please, be 21 or older.
*Unfortunately, “all you can drink” is illegal in Illinois, so all tickets will include several beers and cocktails, including:
The Blind Pig (our Templeton Rye manhattan on the rocks)
Branca Menta Milkshake with chocolate chips
A shot of Fernet Branca to finish off the evening.
****The ticket link be up soon — please RSVP to this event and we’ll post up when they go live!***
