DMK Restaurants Host A 'Drink Them Dry' Charity Event To Help Those Affected By Hurricane Sandy


One local restaurant group is stepping up to help in the wake of the devastation of Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast.

From Oct. 31 through Friday, Nov. 2, DMK Restaurants—which owns Ada Street, DMK Burger Bar and Fishbar—is throwing a Drink Them Dry benefit where 20 percent of beverage sales goes toward the American Red Cross relief efforts.

They'll also sell raffle tickets for a few lucky people to win a $250 gift card to DMK Restaurants.

Crain's Chicago Names 'Top Steakhouses For Business,' And Includes A Bunch Of Chains


I'll give them a pass for putting Morton's on the list because after all it originated in Chicago.

But the fact that Crain's dedicated much of its Best Steakhouses For Business list to chains is pretty inexcusable.

Not to say that Capital Grille, Mastro's and Smith & Wollensky aren't good, but there's nothing unique about any of them. You can get those exact same menus all over the country.
