A (Mostly) Veggie Affair

On Thursday, November 13, the Green City Market Junior Board will present its ever-so-local and seasonal fall fundraiser, A (Mostly) Veggie Affair: Cheat on Meat or Go Whole Beast!, at Wicker Park’s Chop Shop & The 1st Ward (2033 W. North Ave.) from 7 to 10pm. Throughout the evening, guests will enjoy a walk-around stationed tasting, featuring local chefs’ all-vegetable dishes made with Green City Market vendor produce. Complimenting the array of delicious vegetarian fare, Junior Board member chefs Jared Batson, Scott Manley and Eric Mansavage will also prepare three whole pigs “Three Little Pigs-style,” incorporating straw, wood and bricks both in their cooking methods and for creative inspiration. With all the great local food on offer, attendees will be able to Cheat on Meat or Go Whole Beast!

The current chef line-up (with additional names to be added) includes:

  • Jared Batson (The Nomad Food Company)
  • Abe Conlon and Adrienne Lo (Fat Rice)
  • Beverly Kim and John Clark (Parachute)
  • Kim Leali (Nico Osteria)

The fundraiser will also enlist five of the city’s most talented bartenders, who will pour creative libations featuring Green City Market product. In addition, local craft beer from Junior Board member Jared Rouben’s Moody Tongue Brewing Company and Goose Island Brewpub will be on offer, along with bottled cocktails from Charles Joly’s Crafthouse brand. The five featured bartenders will include:
