When Xoco announced the first of its pop-up dinners at our favorite Chicago breweries, we didn’t exactly know what to expect.
OK, that’s a huge lie. We had a pretty good idea that eating spicy Yucatecan tacos and drinking fresh draft beer in the confines of Half Acre’s handsomely appointed tap room would be a great time.
What we didn’t know was that the demand would be through the roof — tickets to our first three-course brewery dinner at Half Acre sold out within just a few days and we had to turn away a handful of unfortunate, ticket-less souls at the door on Monday, leaving them to peer through the window at the abundant smiles, beer and tacos inside.
(True story: After dinner, one guest walked out the door with her friends, surveyed the room and literally said “Oh, what fun!” When’s the last time you heard anyone say that? On a Monday, no less!)
Until then, enjoy some photos from the Half Acre dinner and make yourself a promise that you won’t snooze on the next round of ticket sales.
Oh, what fun.
