    Tuesday Night Dinner invites you to “Off the Boat, Into the Kitchen”-the second installment of ‘Last Tuesdays’, a winter dinner series. The series draws inspiration from Chicago’s collective food history, sourcing from little known ethnic markets and specialty suppliers across the city. At ‘Off the Boat, Into the Kitchen’, guests will experience an interpretation of Old World favorites tweaked through the lens of the Windy City. For $30, guests will enjoy a four-course plated meal from the TND kitchen, libations, live music, and art.

    Tuesday Night Dinner hosts a communal dinner the last Tuesday of each month. The locations, artists, and collaborators rotate depending on each dinner. This month’s TND is on January 29th, from 8-11pm, at No Sandbox Studio located at 159 N. Racine 4th floor. Each course will be plated and then served communally.

    Mini Q&A with Jirasek:

    Pick it! Pen or Pencil?

    Pen.

    Paleron. Shoulder cut of beef also called chicken steak but it’s beef.  It’s really lean and you can handle it like a brisket.

    What music do you listen to in the kitchen?

    Deer Hunter

    Chin Up Chin Up

    Queens of the Stone Age

    System of a Down

    Fav line on the el?

    Blue line. I use to take the train a lot. I feel focused on the el, take it all the way down to the airport and back. I would read and do homework, the Blue line library.

    What television character would you dine with?

    Charlie Day-Always Sunday in Philadelphia


    Come hang out with Nick and the rest of the Tuesday Night Dinner crew at July’s TND.
