A couple of months ago, I wrote about the City Provisions monthly Supper Club. I've been to one of these events and I can tell you that it was one of the best meals I've ever had.

Next Tuesday, January 12 at 7 p.m. City Provisions is hosting its Supper Club at Architectural Artifacts (4325 North Ravenswood). City Provisions is teaming up with Death's Door Spirits and Floriole Bakery to bring you a truly one-of-a-kind cocktail party experience.

The special guest will be Tim Winkler of Mindful Metropolis to discuss their Mission and commitment to the conscious community

For this event, City Provisions is offering a special deal for Gapers Block Readers. When you call (773.293.2489) to make your reservation, mention Gapers Block and receive a $10 discount.

Check out the event, get involved in the conscious community. You won't be disappointed.

Happy eating!
