Event description

Description

FIG Presents - our newly sprouted arm of hosted events, is excited to launch our first farm dinner of 2018 at a truly urban landscape - City Farm! City Farm grows sustainable and heirloom produce for Chicago chefs, restaurants and food businesses. They've helped FIG in our mission to source hyperlocally for years, and we're excited to bring the farm dinner closest to home.

Join us as we celebrate peak vernal vegetables from the farm and everyone's epic "Summer in Chicago" plans. This dinner is inspired by the transition from delicate ingredients to summer bounty, modern skylines to lush green spaces.

We'll start with cocktail hour featuring seasonal hors d'oeuvres and signature drinks using Letherbee Distillers limited vernal session gin (think flavors like local eucalyptus, vanilla, strawberry; basically the booze of your dreams). We'll then take a tour of the farm before sitting down to a seasonal, coursed family-style meal under the Friday night city lights. Ticket includes tour, hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, wine and craft beer with dinner and dessert (of course).

FAQs

Will there be a raindate?

Although we're hoping for the best weather, we will have either a rain contingency the night of (hoop house dining) or reschedule for Sunday, June 19.

I'm a vegetarian/gluten free. Will there be something for me?

We're happy to accomodate special diets within reason. Please reach out to FIG with menu questions and requests.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope - this is a family friendly event. If you'd like to drink, you will need an ID.

What should I wear?

Whatever is comfortable and inspires you to celebrate Spring. The food and drinks will be elevated -- the dress code is not. We do not recommend high heeled shoes, as the ground is soft.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Street parking is available. You can also access the farm via CTA (Clark/Division Red Line, #70 bus).

What is the restroom situation at City Farm?

Well, it is a farm. There are no buildings on site, meaning the only restroom on the farm is portable. Luckily Target is literally across the street, and you are welcome to use their facilities throughout the night.

I'm a community member. Is there any special pricing for neighbors of City Farm?

Yes. We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to come together and enjoy what the farm has to offer. We will offer a limited number of specially discounted neighbor tickets, subject to availability. Please contact us directly for pricing and eligibility.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
