Do This: Burgers, Art And Beer With Sunday Dinner Club

By Anthony Todd in Food on Sep 14, 2012 5:20PM


Sunday Dinner Club makes one of the best burgers in town. The only downside? It only comes out once a week, at Green City Market, and it sometimes sells out before lazy bums like us manage to get there. Plus, there's no beer at Green City! Luckily, Sunday Dinner Club is branching out - appropriately enough, on Sunday! This Sunday, you can get a taste of the burger or egg sandwich, quaff brews from Half Acre and look at some great art, all at the same time.

On Sunday, Sept. 16 from 3-6 p.m., guests to Azimuth Projects' Punishment and Protest show in Logan Square get a burger (made with fresh ground beef and local horseradish cheddar), a seasonal side dish and beer. There is even a vegetarian option, and they promise that they won't run out of egg sandwiches before you arrive. All of this, plus art, for only $25. As an added bonus, if you come to the event you can get on the exclusive Sunday Dinner Club mailing list, the only way to attend their fabulous pop-up dinners.

What about the art?

Punishment and Protest, a two person exhibition featuring works from Jason Dunda (painting on paper using ink and gouache) and Jaclyn Jakunski (etching, silk screen and colleague). Punishment and Protest creates a visual context to view political action and social unrest through the prism of subtle gesture aided by line, volume, ink and washes of color. Both artists excel in a game of compositional mastery, engaging with subtitle vernacular imagery and language posited against a backdrop of real and imagined public space.
