MAYOR EMANUEL, DCASE AND THE ILLINOIS RESTAURANT ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCE TASTE OF CHICAGO RESTAURANT LINEUP
Diverse Lineup includes 35 Restaurants made up of New Additions and Classic Favorites
 
Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) the Illinois Restaurant Association (IRA) are pleased to announce a diverse lineup of 35 restaurants that will participate throughout the highly anticipated, five-day food and entertainment festival Taste of Chicago, July 10-14 in Grant Park. Taste of Chicago is produced by DCASE in coordination with the IRA, which manages the food and beverage operation.
 
“Taste of Chicago is a great long-standing tradition of summer in the city,” said Mayor Emanuel. “As our culinary reputation has grown on the national stage, this event continues to reflect the vibrant and diverse restaurant community of Chicago with old favorites and new, exciting worldwide cuisines. Taste-goers are guaranteed an endless variety of dining options to suit every palate and I am excited to announce the offerings for this summer.”
 
Alongside Taste of Chicago’s classic favorites, the 2013 event welcomes several newcomers, including Bombay Spice Grill & Wine, featuring healthy Indian fare; French Market favorite Flip Crepes; Lao Ma La Chinese by acclaimed Chef Tony Hu; and the decadent, Southern-inspired Wishbone Restaurant. Additionally, after taking part in last year’s crowd-pleasing pop-up pavilion, both Beat Kitchen and Caffe Gelato return in 2013 as five-day participants.
 
All vendors will showcase signature menu items, as well as the popular “Taste Of” portions priced at $2.50 or less, allowing guests the opportunity to sample an even greater variety of items. Many will also include Humana Healthier Choice selections for those seeking lighter options.
 
Admission to Taste of Chicago is free, and tickets for food and beverages can be purchased in strips of 12 tickets for $8. Tickets will also be available for purchase beginning July 1 at Dominick’s grocery stores throughout the Chicagoland area.
 
“Taste of Chicago truly embodies the city’s dynamic culinary scene,” said Sam Toia, President of the Illinois Restaurant Association. “In keeping with Taste tradition, attendees can expect to explore both long-standing favorites as well as new vendors, many of whose restaurants have been rooted in Chicago for decades.

Homestead – a literal farm-to-table restaurant – to open at 5pm on Friday, May 31 (Chicago)

Homestead – a literal farm-to-table restaurant – to open at 5pm on Friday, May 31
Cuisine rooted in “rustic elegance” from Executive Chef Chris Curren; specialty cocktails, spirits, wines, and beers from Beverage Director Benjamin Schiller; dessert from Executive Pastry Chef Chris Teixeira, and more

  Homestead – a literal farm-to-table restaurant featuring cuisine rooted in “rustic elegance” by Executive Chef Chris Curren; specialty cocktails, spirits, wines, and beers from Beverage Director Benjamin Schiller; and dessert and bread from Executive Pastry Chef Chris Teixeira – will open to the public at 5pm on Friday, May 31.

Homestead patrons will enter the restaurant through Roots Handmade Pizza (1924 W Chicago Ave), and will be led upstairs to the unique dual space on the second floor. Homestead will not accept reservations.

Homestead will be open 5pm to 2am Tuesday thru Sunday. Homestead will be closed on Mondays (and Homestead will be closed to the public on Sunday, June 2 for a private event). Homestead will serve its full food menu until 11pm each night it is open. The Homestead outdoor second-floor patio will be open until midnight each night the restaurant is open. Patrons can enjoy cocktails, spirits, wines, and beers inside Homestead’s indoor air-conditioned second floor space until 2am every night the restaurant is open.

The outdoor rooftop of Homestead features 80 outdoor seats with full view of the L-shaped 1,000-square foot organic rooftop farm and two massive vertical hanging gardens.  

The light-filled and airy second-floor interior air-conditioned space at Homestead – featuring live birch walls, bespoke glass terrariums, and vintage sconces -- will seat about 50 people at low-top tables. An additional 11 seats at the bar and five high-top tables totaling 10 seats are also available in the Homestead interior space.

Executive Chef Chris Curren – who has spent the last 11 years as a chef at some of the top restaurants in Chicago and Cleveland – has crafted a food menu for Homestead rooted in “rustic elegance” where he utilizes seasonal herbs, plants, vegetables, and fruits harvested from Homestead’s 1,000 square-foot organic rooftop garden, a private “Homestead-only” farm outside of the city of Chicago, other local and high-quality farms, and local-whenever-possible meat, seafood, and poultry purveyors.

Dishes marked with an asterisk (*) on Curren’s attached Homestead food menu indicate large/entrée plates. All of Curren’s other dishes on the Homestead menu are smaller/share plates. Curren’s Homestead menu is broken down into four sections.

The menu’s first section, “From The Garden”, features four composed salads. A standout dish from this section is the “Duck Egg” salad that features a poached duck egg atop wild mushrooms, asparagus, wild mushrooms, English Peas, pickled ramps, and pumpernickel croutons, and pumpernickel crumble.

The menu’s second section, “From The Mill”, includes three housemade pastas and a “Bread Basket”. The “Bread Basket” from executive Pastry Chef Chris Teixeira includes  four housemade and house-baked breads (manchego & Jamón Serrano laminated brioche, Pan d' Epi, berb sourdough, and ciabatta) that are served with whipped Oaxacan-honey butter, house pickles, and a tomato-herb oil.

One of Curren’s signature pastas is an agnolotti stuffed with sweet corn, manchego cheese, and shallots. The agnolotti is accompanied with wild mushrooms, baby squash, lardo, and chili powder. A parmesan-sweet corn broth is poured tableside for over the pasta and its accompaniments.

The menu’s third section, “From The Water” features five seafood dishes. A standout dish from here is Curren’s smaller-scale take on a traditional New England Clam Bake
with middleneck clams, dried corn, marble potato chips, crumbles house-made chorizo, carrots, smoked fennel, and a clam-and-corn broth.

The menu’s fourth section, “From The Land” features six meat and poultry dishes. A highlight from this section is the “Crispy Duck Leg” which features a duo of duck (confit thigh and a tasso-cured breast) served atop wild black rice cooked polenta style, pickled blueberries, and spiced heirloom carrots.

Homestead Beverage Director Benjamin Schiller has created a tightly- curated specialty cocktail, spirits, wine, and beer lists. Many of these lists may evolve week to week.

Schiller will open with seven specialty cocktails – each priced at $10 each. All of his specialty cocktail (except for the bourbon-coffee essence-pipe tobacco “Weston”) were created with a sweet-and-sour backbone that were meant to be light, refreshing, and sessionable summer cocktails to be enjoyed on Homestead’s rooftop.

One highlight of Schiller’s specialty cocktail menu is the “Ghost Sign” which features a thinly sliced grapefruit wrapped around the inside of a Collins glass that’s mixed with tequila, Pimm’s, kumquat, and lemon.

Schiller’s Homestead spirits list features at most seven different types of each liquor while highlighting high-end and underappreciated brands in each category.

Schiller’s Homestead wine list is tight and esoteric highlighting organic, biodynamic, and small-case production wines. Three sparkling, six white, and six red wines are available by the glass.  Three champagnes, 15 whites, and 15 reds are available by the bottle.

Beer-wise, Homestead will rotate a single brewery’s beers per week. Anchor Brewing out of San Francisco will be the first brewery featured at Homestead with two of its beers on tap and three available in bottles.

Before joining Homestead and The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group, Schiller was most recently in charge of the cocktail and spirits program at Boka Restaurant Group for properties Boka, GT Fish & Oyster, and Girl & The Goat. Prior to joining the Boka Restaurant Group in 2009, Schiller helped open The Peninsula Hotel Chicago and he was also the head bartender at In Fine Spirits in Chicago.

Executive Pastry Chef Chris Teixeira (formerly of four-star Chicago dining landmark Sixteen) will open with three composed desserts on the Homestead menu. The desserts will change every week or two based on what’s best and in-season.

A highlight from Teixeira’s opening dessert menu is the “Plum” featuring ginger-roasted plums over a buckwheat Sablé  that’s garnished with crème fraîche chantilly, ginger fluid gel, a sesame seed tuile, and oat ice cream.

 

MAYOR EMANUEL AND DCASE ANNOUNCE THE COMPLETE LINEUP OF PERFORMERS FOR THE 28TH CHICAGO GOSPEL MUSIC FESTIVAL, JUNE 20-23 Festival Highlights and Activities Announced

MAYOR EMANUEL AND DCASE ANNOUNCE THE COMPLETE LINEUP OF PERFORMERS FOR THE 28TH CHICAGO GOSPEL MUSIC FESTIVAL, JUNE 20-23
Festival Highlights and Activities Announced
 
Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) present the complete lineup for the 28th Chicago Gospel Music Festival in Chicago from June 20-23. Once again the Bronzeville neighborhood, the birthplace of Gospel music, will serve as the festival’s main home – with the weekend portion of the festival featuring two stages of music at Ellis Park (37th and Cottage Grove). Millennium Park will host opening night performances on Thursday, and the Chicago Cultural Center will host various events on Friday.
“The city of Chicago welcomes the Chicago Gospel Music Festival and is proud to continue fostering one of America’s greatest musical genres,” said Mayor Emanuel. “By celebrating Chicago’s Gospel Music Festival in the Bronzeville Community we are advancing several priorities of the Chicago Cultural Plan by strengthening our local arts and entertainment, while showcasing the economic and cultural assets of one of Chicago’s most historic neighborhoods.”
Bringing one of the city’s heritage festivals to one of Chicago’s historic neighborhoods continues to fulfill the mission of the Chicago Cultural Plan by expanding and capitalizing on neighborhood cultural assets and bringing music and art to underserved areas. This serves to further the Mayor’s strategic vision to foster growth and development in neighborhoods such as Bronzeville across Chicago. Bronzeville was named one of the Mayor’s seven opportunity zones last week. In 2012, for the first time, Mayor Emanuel brought Gospel Fest to Bronzeville, the ancestral home of gospel. Now, in 2013, it returns.
The Chicago Gospel Music Festival, presented by The Black McDonald’s Operators Association, moves to its festival home in Bronzeville’s Ellis Park (37th and Cottage Grove) on June 22 and 23 and this year many of Chicago’s homegrown talent will be performing on the Day Stage as music begins at noon.
On Saturday, Elder Carl Hearne & Priesthood will be the first performers on the Day Stage followed by 2nd Nature at 12:30 p.m. and G.A.3 at 1 p.m. (Full lineup is below.)
The festival brings back some favorites from previous years with Percy Bady who performs at 2:40 p.m. Born and raised in Chicago, Bady is a songwriter, producer and performer who is credited with influencing modern Gospel music. Malcolm Williams & Great Faith follow as Williams performs the music he was born to play, beginning his career at age six when he was named Director of a 60 member junior choir at a church in North Chicago.
Closing out the afternoon are AM:PM – Anthony McGahee & Praise Motivated at 4:10 p.m. The Milwaukee native has conducted for Josh Groban and trained many academy choirs. The finale is Chicago-based gospel youth choir Joshua’s Troop which combines vocals with hip-hop, R&B and a jazzy gospel sound.

Father's Day Tintype Portraits Rayko Photo Center (San Francisco)



Father's Day Tintype Portraits


SATURDAY, JUNE 8th, 11am-5pm

SATURDAY, JUNE 15th, 11am-5pm 

 

Father’s Day is just around the corner.  Give dad the most wonderful gift in the world, a beautifully hand crafted one of a kind tintype photograph of you and/or your family.  Purely analog, a tintype is a direct positive photographic process that yields a warm silvery image onto black plated aluminum. Perfect for those looking to give a lasting gift.  Book your session today at Rayko Photo Center, the place for all things photography!

 

What is a Tintype? 
A Tintype is a photographic process from the 1850's that is a direct positive image captured on a black enameled aluminum or tin sheet. One of many things that differentiate it from other photographic processes is that it is a camera-original positive. In other words, most photography is a capture image today, then print the image at a later date. In the tintype process, the image and print are the same thing and made at the same time. There is no negative to make reproduction prints. Hence, each image is one of a kind. 

Tintype Cancellation Policy 
Due to limited availability and because Rayko Photo Center does not offer this service year-round, all portrait booking sales are final unless cancelled 3 business days in advance. Cancelled portrait sessions that meet the 3-business day requirement, will get a full refund. There are no rescheduling opportunities available as available times have been sold to other customers.
