The Waco Brothers
The Waco Brothers
Quite possibly the best live rock band on the planet. We've seen them a hundred and sixty seven times, and the Waco Brothers never fail to entertain with their train wreck approach to country. Subtlety is for the weak, so they've chosen the path of optimum mayhem and tomfoolery. In their rollicking career, they have been called everything from the flagship act of the alternative country "movement" to pure butchery. Both are likely to be correct.

The Academy For Global Citizenship
The Academy For Global Citizenship
An AGC education extends beyond a solid academic foundation. Organic, nutritionally balanced meals provide mentally and physically strong building blocks, daily yoga centers the body and mind, gardening teaches about life and food, wellness instruction creates healthy habits, and ecologically sustainable-practices throughout the school
encourage learners to develop sustainable lifestyles. Ultimately, the Academy for Global Citizenship engages the whole child in an enriching educational community that is focused on fostering academic excellence, international awareness and environmental stewardship.

This event is 21+ and all ticket proceeds from this show will benefit The Academy for Global Citizenship, a charter school on the Southwest Side that feeds its students organic breakfast and lunch, but needs additional funds to do so. The Waco Brothers and the Blisters (Spencer Tweedy's band) will perform while you enjoy food from Belly Shack, GT Fish & Oyster, Lula Cafe, Hot Chocolate, Publican Quality Meats, Sunday Dinner Club, Trencherman and Yusho. Want in? Get tickets online.

The day after the party, RedStreak will become available at about 20 restaurants and bars throughout Chicago. The 5.2 percent ABV cider will be at all of the restaurants named above, as well as Bangers & Lace, the Publican, Bad Apple, Hopleaf (where they'll hold a tasting on April 18), Uncommon Ground, Nellcôte, Delilah's, Longman & Eagle and Bottom Lounge, among others. RedStreak will only be available on draft in 2012, but may get bottled after that.

The cider, created by blending about five varieties of apples from Michigan and Illinois (the Cox Orange Pippin and Ida Red apples came from Nichols Farm), has bright apple peel on the nose with a slight sweetness and a tart yet slightly tannic finish. It pairs well with a variety of food from cheddar cheese to scallops and oysters to braised rabbit so finding something to eat at drink at the Hideout party should be pretty easy.

And here's a fun fact: Friday the 13 (the day RedStreak hits Chicago) is a lucky day for Hall; Goose Island's Clybourn brewpub and the Fulton Street brewery both opened on that day, in 1988 and 1995, respectively. Let's hope Hall has the same (red)streak of good fortune.

GT Fish & Oyster
GT Fish & Oyster
GT Fish & Oyster opened in March of 2011, and has helped redefine the American seafood restaurant. Michelin starred, and Food and Wines Best New Chef 2008, Giuseppe Tentori, has developed a menu that’s half-traditional, half modern, in an everchanging small plates format. The restaurant received three stars from the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun Times, and 4 stars from Time Out Chicago.Designed by 555 International, the 115-seat modern seafood eatery presents a seasonal menu comprised of both traditional and non-traditional fish-centric dishes. In addition to a rotating mix of East and West Coast oysters served with innovative accoutrements such as a cucumber cocktail sauce, or ponzu mignonette, chef Tentori features a wide-selection of shared plates ($9-$24) such as Squid Ink Gnocchi with Maine lobster, haricot verts, scented carrot broth; Braised Baby Octopus with roasted Roma tomato sauce and chili-infused polenta; Chorizo Stuffed Squid, Shrimp & Saffron scented Risotto; Foie Gras and Prawn Terrine with Szechuan peppercorns, apricot-shallot chutney; and Brandade Croquettes with orange-fennel salad, grainy mustard aioli.“There is a distinct hole in the Chicago’s seafood restaurant market. The city offers a wide selection in regards to high-end and low-end venues, but there is nothing to really choose from in the mid-range section,” said Kevin Boehm, owner, Boka Restaurant Group. “Rob and I always have and will develop and open restaurant concepts that are akin to restaurants we want to dine at.”In addition to a wine and locally-focused beer menu, the simple cocktail list, devised by BRG’s resident mixologist Benjamin Schiller, will include bevy of seafood-friendly refreshers. With each drink comprised of no more than 5 ingredients, offerings will include selections such as the Apricot Blossom with Prosecco, apricot liqueur, and rose water; Hayman’s Old Tom, Pimm’s No. 1, cucumber, and grapefruit oil; and the Highland Daisy with Altos Plata Tequila, blackberry syrup, lemon, mint.555 vice president and lead designer on the project, Karen Herold, developed the restaurant’s design concept by drawing inspiration from chef Tentori’s distinct contrast of traditional and non-traditional items on the menu. Merging new and old elements, Herold took rustic details of a old fisherman’s cottage and combined them with more sophisticated, components of a sleek yacht. The restaurant will provide guests with the feeling that they’ve just stepped onto an elegant stateroom, while conveying the casual, relaxed atmosphere of the deck of the boat.
Lula Cafe
Lula Cafe
"...the fare here is more Chez Panisse than Moosewood Cafe. Hammel and Tshilds supplement the regular menu with daily specials they create together, featuring "seasonal organic produce from local sources, wild caught fish, and naturally raised meats and poultry." - Chicago Tribune

Publican Quality Meats
Publican Quality Meats
The focus at this West Town full-service butcher shop and lunch spot will be fresh house-carved meats from local family farms. With seating for 50, the lunch crowds will take advantage of the artisan-style sandwiches and draft beer. Helmed by The Publican's Paul Kahan, it will offer charcuterie, aged prime beef, pork and other cured meats, and lunch options such as made-to-order sandwiches. Marinated chicken, country ribs, house-made sausages and staples such as milk, eggs and olive oil will be for sale to grab-and-go from the coolers in the modern interior, designed by the same team as The Publican. Thought the shop will exclusively service The Publican with a house-processed meat program, its fresh-baked bread will be distributed to all the restaurants in the Blackbird family. The space will also function as a private party spot and cooking classes will be offered during the evenings. In the future, look for a continental-style breakfast of smoked beef and fish, with other morning favorites.
Sunday Dinner Club

Trencherman
Trencherman
Mike and Patrick Sheerin (who are formerly of Blackbird and the Signature Room, respectively) have partnered with Matt Eisler and Kevin Heisner, co-owners in Bangers & Lace, for the project. It will be located in the massive West North Avenue space vacated by Spring. At the media preview event, Heisner indicated that the space has been almost entirely transformed: there's now a 60-seat bar to complement an 80-seat dining area, and the custom decor would reflect a variety of influences, including steampunk. Renovations are still under way, and the owners are anticipating an opening in the February-March 2012 timeframe.
