On the Table: Sister Neighborhoods @ Hideout

Gapers Block is proud to join the organizers of the Sister Neighborhoods initiative for an On the Table event at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia Ave., from 6 to 9pm. There will be soup served, Soup & Bread-style, in the back room of the Hideout, followed by a presentation about Sister Neighborhoods -- an initiative to foster hospitality across communities in the city and suburbs by facilitating an exchange of cultural awareness and barrier breaking activities -- and conversation about how to make the idea a reality. The event is free, but donations will be accepted to benefit the Chicago Help Initiative, a nonprofit providing meals to the homeless. Register here to attend.

A Match Made in Pilsen @ Dusek's

Dusek's (1807 S. Allport) hosts a "chef-driven beer dinner" to celebrate Craft Beer Week, with six courses produced by local talent like Jared Wentworth of Longman and Eagle and Abe Conlon of Fat Rice. Event begins 6:30pm; tickets $125.
