Celebrate Mother’s Day—or another day off from work—with a tasting of Chicago’s unique eats at Dose Market. Get your fill of cider, sweets and spices on Sunday at the River East Art Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. And if you’ve forgotten to get Mom a gift this year, no problem: all moms are invited to enter a free raffle to win an assortment of Doser goods, including Lydia Brockman hand-dyed scarves and May Box Botanicals natural body products.
It’ll be five o’clock somewhere, so get started with complimentary Virtue cider and Koval Distillery cocktails. Try a Do-Rite Donut to soak up your booze, or a treat from Sweet Cakes Bakery—they even have vegan options to satisfy any sweet tooth.
Pecking Order will debut its Filipino-inspired chicken to satisfy your savory cravings, while Falafill will be on hand for a vegetarian lunch. Pop-up noodle joint Flour and Bones (from the X-Marx folks) will bring the dumplings. And don’t forget your doggie bag: take Curry’s Spices, Valentino Pasta and Quince + Apple preserves to stock the pantry.
If you save room for dessert, try a scoop of Jeni’s Ice Cream in flavors like Ugandan vanilla and salted caramel, ChocolatUzma candy or Grown Up Kid Stuff artisan fudge. If food and fashion is up your alley, purchase tickets for May 13’s Dose Market online for $8 or at the door for $10.
