Chicago Roof-to-Table Launch Event

Hold onto your knickers, Chicago!  EAT UP’s coming to town.  On August 20th from 6:00-8:00 pm we will celebrate EAT UP’s Midwest book launch and Roof-to-Table Photography Exhibition opening at Uncommon Ground (1401 W. Devon Ave).  The book launch will take place amidst tomatoes and peppers within the restaurant’s rooftop farm, or indoors if raining.  The Photography Exhibition will hang below in the restaurant from August 20 – September 15.

The event is open to the public, so please come and enjoy Literature (book sale and signing), Art (30 rooftop photos from EAT UP framed with “twice-reclaimed lumber”), and Food (roof-fresh nibbles provided by Uncommon Ground).

With so many food roofs across the Windy City’s skyline, come see for yourself what all the fuss is about by exploring Uncommon Ground‘s own rooftop farm up close.  The Photography Exhibition will whet your appetite even further by showcasing rooftop farms and veggie gardens from nine North American cities, taken by nine photographers.  The Exhibition will travel west from Philly, where it hung from April-June.

Go ahead, tell your friends, bring a date.  You won’t want to miss this extraordinary rooftop event.
