The Perfect Party For Singles This Summer!
Culinary kings and cigar connoisseurs Rick Gresh (David Burke's Primehouse), Giuseppe Tentori (GT Fish & Oyster, Boka) and Cleetus Friedman (City Provisions) have teamed up to host the first-ever CigarBQue this summer.
Don't worry! These talented chefs aren't doing some weird cigar-infused creations. Instead, they've gathered other high-profile toques as well as mixologists to host a night of craft cocktails and fine cigars to complement some awesome BBQ bites.
In addition to the hosts cooking, Jimmy Bannos Sr. (Heaven on Seven), Todd Stein (Florentine), Mike and Patrick Sheerin (Trenchermen), Sarah Jordan (Boka) and Willie Wagner (Honky Tonk BBQ) will be whipping up signature bites. And bartenders Eric Hay (Wirtz), Daniel de Oliveira (Olmeca Altos Tequila), Ben Schiller (Boka) and Fred Sarkis (Sable Kitchen) are charged with making cocktails for the night.
The event happens 6-9pm June 21 at Beyond Design (4515 N. Ravenswood Ave.). Tickets are $185 and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation. The tickets can be purchased here.
