Are you a manly man? Then we have the get-out-of-the-house tonight event for you. It’s called CigarBQue— are you sold yet? Isn’t the name enough? Well, it’s organized by the likes of Rick Gresh (David Burke’s Primehouse), Giuseppe Tentori (BoKa, GT Fish & Oyster), and Cleetus Friedman (City Provisions), with an impressive list of special guest chefs (two Sheerins, Top Cheffer Lee Anne Wong, Honky Tonk BBQer Willie Wagner, Purple Pigger Jimmy Bannos Sr., etc.) and mixologists (Benjamin Schiller and others). Sold now? What, you want to know what it’s about? How about “an exclusive evening of food, cigars, cocktails, beer and wine?” And by food we’re not talking micro greens, except to the extent that a big hunk of pork needs a little accent, clearly. It’s from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight at Beyond Design, 4515 N. Ravenswood, and tickets will be available at the door.
This man could use a cigar.
