Watch Your Favorite Chefs Behind the Turntables at Old Town Social

2011_7_28Stagiaire.jpg Have you ever wanted to see what sort of music Stephanie Izard likes to dance to? Now you can experience it first hand. "Stagiaire Records," a chef-driven party at Old Town Social every Tuesday night from 10 PM to 2 AM lets you rock out with some of Chicago's most famous chefs, and the proceeds go to benefit the Green City Market. Quietly running since May, the party is now ramping up for the summer.

Jared Van Camp, the chef at Old Town Social, owns over 5000 LPs - so, it was only logical that he start a showcase for his music. Fellow culinarians like Izard, Cleetus Friedman (City Provisions), Jared Rouben (Goose Island) and Christine Cikowski (Sunday Dinner Club) will be joining Van Camp throughout the summer.

Best part? Everything on the menu at Old Town Social is 50% off during the event. Each week, one item will stay full price and the proceeds from its sale will go directly to Green City Market. So go dance, eat and do some good!

Old Town Social is located at 455 W. North Avenue.
