The Chicago Diner is celebrating their 29th anniversary with a big ol’ garden party on Monday, April 2 from 11:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. at their beloved Lakeview location, 3411 N. Halsted. The party is also a benefit for Mercy For Animals, with the Chicago Diner and Chicago Vegan Foods (formerly known as Chicago Soydairy) teaming up to donate fifty cents to the non-profit animal advocacy group every time a customer orders soy-based Teese rather than dairy cheese. The benefit lasts all week, so any time you come in from April 2 – April 8 and order an item with Teese, you will be supporting MFA’s important work.
Their big garden party, though, is just April 2. Come in all day for roll-back menu prices, a raffle with tons of great prizes (all proceeds benefitting MFA), food and drink samples and music from DJ Veganinblack. Expect a big crowd and a great time.
Meat-free since ’83 is more than just a catchy slogan: the Chicago Diner was a pioneer back when our city was most famous for steakhouses. Chicago has grown more and more vegan-friendly over the years, partially due to the award winning Chicago Diner proving that there was an eager market for hearty but wholesome meatless food. The Chicago Diner is well-known and well-loved for their big food and their big hearts, having won many awards over the years and consistently given back through through their Making Change initiative. Come visit the Chicago Diner this week for wonderful food and a great cause.
