savesonoran2018.jpg

Back by popular demand for two days only, the Sonoran Hot Dog makes its highly anticipated return to Big Star in Wicker Park. Exclusively available on March 6th and 7th, guests will have their chance to order the cult classic hot dog, but get there fast— Big Star sold over 200 Sonorans in less than 8 hours last year!

 

Big Star’s Sonoran starts with a juicy Vienna Beef link wrapped in bacon and topped with pinto beans, tomato and onion. The bite is then slathered in a combination of lime mayo, mustard and specially-made Serrano sauce and served in a traditional bolillo roll. Chase Big Star’s Sonoran with a rare brew from Half Acre Beer Company, the Daisy Capra, a new double-IPA riff on the brand’s signature Daisy Cutter beer. 

 

Big Star Presents "Save Sonoran" will take place on March 6th and 7th from 11:30 a.m — 1:30am at Big Star and its to-go window. The Sonoran Hot Dog ($7) and Half Acre Beer Company’s Daisy Capra ($7) will be available while supplies last in addition to Big Star’s classic menu.

Darkside - At Emporium Wicker Park

Darkside allows you to sample and explore some of the best dark beers on the market, some of which you may never see again!  TICKETS: Online Advanced Pre-Sale: $25 Online Pre-Sale: $30 Door: $40 (if we don’t sell out)  WHAT YOU GET • A bag of game tokens • 8 samples (about 40 oz) of the beers available.
