When: According to Open Circuit, “several times a month across Chicago,” with two dinners currently planned for January
Where: It’s a secret, duh. The location is released one week prior to the event.
Why you should join: Open Circuit aims to offer the high-end dining experience in a supper club setting, preparing 12-course meals that look downright stunning. Chef Jacob Demars has worked at Elizabeth, Trencherman, and Juno, so don’t expect any sliders or flatbreads on the menu. Also, it’s BYOB.
How to join: Check out upcoming dinners here.
When: Once or twice a month
Where: Double-secret locations around town
Why you should join: Part supper club and part private tour, Godspeed is all about secrecy. After confirming a reservation, attendees receive a meeting time and location. From there, transportation, entertainment, drinks, and dinner are all included, as small groups jet around the city over a span of four to five hours. Along the way, they’ll meet interesting people and discover oft-overlooked locations as the guide shares historical facts and tells tales of hustlers, swindlers, jokesters, and other noteworthy characters. This one is definitely for those looking for something a bit more adventurous.
