CLOSE ENCOUNTERS: Sipping a Glass of 1908 Vienna

  • Cliff Dwellers Club 200 South Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL, 60604 United States (map)

Save your dietary cheat day for this extravagance, our glimpse into Schoenberg’s Vienna by way of your gullet. If you’re on the up-and-up with Chicago craft breweries, you’ve read the ink on Illuminated Brew Works. We’ll all be tucking into a custom draft created especially for this event, resurrecting a 1908 Viennese recipe from the same year as Schoenberg’s second quartet...all with the Cliff Dwellers' magnificent views of downtown and Lake Michigan as our backdrop.
