EARLY BIRD TICKETS THROUGH 4/30 Join FIG as we celebrate peak vernal vegetables from City Farm and everyone's epic upcoming "Summer in Chicago" resolutions.
FIG Presents - FIG Catering's 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 hyper-locally for years, and we're excited to bring the farm dinner closest to home. A portion of ticket sales will benefit City Farm.
Join us as we celebrate peak vernal vegetables from the farm and everyone's epic upcoming "Summer in Chicago" resolutions. 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 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 farm tour, live music, hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, wine and craft beer with dinner and dessert (of course).
