Dine at The Florentine anytime on Tuesday, June 21st, and 15% of your bill will be donated to Share Our Strength. Share Our Strength helps fight childhood hunger, sponsors events and dinners throughout the year to raise money. On the 21st, diners can go for breakfast, lunch or dinner - doesn’t matter, and there is no minimum order. If you’ve been waiting to check out The Florentine, now’s the time. 151 W. Adams

FOC Archie Powell & the Exports are heading out on a little tour, and the kick-off is tonight at < a href=”>Beat Kitchen. We’ve seen them play recently so expect the set to be heavy on last year’s critically acclaimed Skip Work LP augmented with a left-field musical surprise or two. These boys are always a blast live, so if you’re looking for a solid evening of pop dressed up with a healthy side of rock then head over and help these boys rev up their engines before they hit the road. 2100 W Belmont
