ROGERS PARK — For foodies looking to help out local farmers market vendors, while also partaking in a delicious meal off the beaten path, look no further than the Red Cherry Supper Club.
The club, a fundraising arm of the cherished Glenwood Sunday Market in Rogers Park, sells diners the promise of a "once-in-a-lifetime," all-inclusive experience of eating and drinking locally sourced goods at a secret neighborhood location, accompanied by live music.
Proceeds go toward keeping the weekly market's programs alive.
Attendees won't know any of the event's details, like its menu, entertainment, time or whereabouts until just 24 hours before it's to begin, but the $125 per person ticket price includes the opportunity to indulge "in signature drinks, wine, soft drinks, seasonal cuisines, live music and more," its organizers said.
Linze Rice says the dinners are popular and mysterious:
On Thursday, those holding a coveted ticket will have their Friday dining and "social experience" revealed.
This dinner's theme: "Ampersand."
In the past, "Fuego," "Cultured," and "Glamp" were all featured as motifs for the exclusive dinner.
Photos from those events show the glow of hanging stringed lights set against a vibrant green backdrop of what appears to be a private yard. Other pictures show fresh floral arrangements being serenaded by the sounds of violinists playing near a long, fully decorated table. On each plate a menu reads, "Cultured: A meal in four acts."
The four-course meal will happen Friday, and only has a few seats left, according to the group's Facebook page.
