ShabBARnukkah at The Graystone

December 6, 2019 @ 6:30 PM - 11:00 PM


By now you’ve seen the Eater Chicago news that Chicago is getting it’s first ever Channukah Pop-Up Bar at The Graystone. And if that news wasn’t incredible on its own, get ready because we’re doing Shabbat dinner to kick off the festivities.

Join me for an epic Shabbat dinner menu to celebrate a space created for all things Channukah! The menu will include plays on Eastern European Jewish classics like matzo ball soup, latkes (fried potato pancakes), a brisket platter, as well as a challah grilled cheese and sufganiyot — deep fried doughnuts with vodka-infused jelly.

The Graystone has a drink menu of playful Hanukkah-themed cocktails, including a “Manischewitz Spritzer” (Manischewitz, Koval cranberry, Mionetto prosecco, club soda, orange slice), a “Gelt Martini” (Wheatley vodka, Godiva chocolate liqueur, creme de cacao, chocolate syrup, Hanukkah gelt — chocolate coins wrapped in gold foil), and a 48-ounce Manischewitz sangria bowl for groups.

Here’s what you need to know re: event logistics and timeline….

*Show up at 6:30pm and open a tab for one of the amazing cocktails you just read about!*
*At 7pm, we’ll welcome in Shabbat together by lighting Shabbat candles, toasting to the week past and ahead, and diving into some delicious Challah*
*From there, you’ll order dinner from your seat… the best part is that you’ll get to keep your own tab so get as much or as little Shabbannukah treats as you’d like. That’s why we’re not ticketing the event… more of your dollars towards that good good!*
Sufganiyot Vodka-Infused are on me ;)You can read more about the Graystone’s Channukah events here: EATER CHICAGO: https://bit.ly/2OztUdB

Also, you might be like “OMG this is an official OneTable partnership dinner, so cool!!!” Well, not quite. I may work for OneTable but this is a chance for Marissa, a fan of The Graystone family and excited about all things Shabbat related, to host an open dinner as a OneTable participant! Get excited y’all… I may or may not (but definitely am) guest bartending starting at 8pm.

Can’t make it for Shabbat? We’ll be hanging for a while so swing through for some post-dinner fun! Channukah themed attire is encouraged, especially because I’ll wearing the hair bow my mom made me for my 1st grade Channukah party… boom.
