Beginning Memorial Day weekend, Chicagoans are asked to shed the kitchen-style confines of their standard dinner reservations and join Sportsman’s Club on the back patio for a BBQ like none other. Taking place on Sundays from May to September, the event series will feature eats from some of the city’s most sought-after chefs, cook-out style.

Highlights from this year’s fest include an appearance from Spiaggia chef and Top-Chef winner, Joe Flamm. As well as showings from classics like Big Star, Dove’s Luncheonette, Roister, Dos Urban Cantina and more.


Tickets to each dinner cost $20 bucks, and come complete with a full plate and one beer.
