Chicago Reader’s 40th Birthday
A Black, White (and Yellow) Ball
Wednesday, October 26, 8PM-11PM
We’re 40! With four decades of incomparable coverage of Chicago under our belt, we’ve got plenty of reasons to celebrate. Join us for an evening of food, drinks, dancing, and art at the Chicago Urban Art Society (CUAS) in the heart of Pilsen’s art district.
Your ticket includes entertainment by J2K (one half of Chicago-based dynamic DJ duo Flosstradamus), live chef stations & hors d’oeuvres from Star of Siam, cocktails courtesy of Death’s Door Spirits, and craft brews from Goose Island. And did you see that crazy cake on our cover? Thanks to Alliance Bakery, you’ll get a taste of that, as well as delectable truffles from Chicago chocolatier Katherine Anne Confections.
Curated by Reader photographer Eric Futran, you’ll experience an exhibit of illustrations and photographs that looks back at 40 years of Chicago through the Reader’s lens. Additional contributors include Jim Newberry, Steve Krakow, Saverio Truglia, Lloyd Degrane, Paul Meredith, and others.
The attire is black, white, and yellow. (As fancy as you want to be.)
And as always with a Reader party, a few surprises await…
