Eighth Blackbird is a Grammy Award-winning contemporary music sextet founded in 1996 that is known for their performing style often playing from memory with theatrical flair.

Live Music, A Feast & Mirth! For Eighth Blackbird’s benefit at The Publican restaurant with Chefs Mario Batali and Paul Kahan, we wanted to create a invitation that you can keep and use. What better way to highlight one of Chicago’s beloved gastro-pubs and Eighth Blackbird than with a beer coaster, 17th century drinking songs, and complementary beer stein.

Eighth Blackbird began the evening with a short concert at the Packer Schopf Gallery, featuring highlights of their touring program and complemented by an exclusive arrangement by Wilco’s Glenn Kotche, performed by Eighth Blackbird with Chef Batali on guitar. Following this, Chefs Kahan and Batali presented a five-course meal, with wine and beer pairings, at Chef Kahan’s own gastro-pub, The Publican. Seconds please!
