Dinner Sunday?

Come have dinner with us this Sunday! Though we’ve sold out our entire block of 94 tickets to The Capitol Fools(!), you can still join the fun after the show. We’d love for you to join us—we still have some open seats for dinner next door to the theater in our private room that has space for only 50 diners, but these places will also fill up fast. Reserve your spot.

It’s fun to hang out with fellow like-minded Democrats, and we hope you’ll join us at Jameson’s Charhouse. For just $36 a person (our cost, including tax and tip), you’ll get a green salad, choice of chicken marsala or macadamia crusted tilapia, both with rice pilaf and a fresh vegetable, plus a soft drink or coffee—choices you make when seated. Reserve your dinner here.

And if you were unable to purchase one of the show tickets in our main floor center block, feel free to join our ticket waitlist. We often have a few last minute cancellations.

When: Sunday, February 4th, immediately following the Capitol Fools’ 2pm performance at the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, 9501 Skokie Blvd., Skokie.

Where: A private dining room in Jameson’s Charhouse next door to the theater, 9525 Skokie Blvd., Skokie.

We’d love to see you on Sunday! Reserve your post-show dinner.

The Threat to Democracy is Bigger Than Trump

Thanks to everyone who supported our latest Tenth Dems University (TDU) event, “The Threat to Democracy is Bigger Than Trump.” Over 75 people joined us on Tuesday night at Max & Benny’s in Northbrook to hear from Sheila Nielsen, attorney, author of The Markin Report, and host of “The Zoom Where It Happens.”

Sheila was informative about a topic we all wish weren’t so relevant but is. Folks enjoyed food and conversation. Attorneys were able to receive free CLE (Continuing Legal Education) credit too. Many members of the audience said they had a good time and were motivated to work even harder to elect Democrats with so much at stake.

Enjoy some pictures from the TDU event below. And if you’d like to help us have the resources to hold more events and help elect Democrats in this critical election, click here to chip in. Everything helps our all-volunteer grassroots group.

The Threat to Democracy?

Join us next Tuesday, November 14, at 7pm (doors open at 6pm) for a free event open to Democrats about a timely topic: “The Threat to Democracy is Bigger than Trump,” the latest edition of our continuing Tenth Dems University (TDU) programs. We’ll hear from Sheila Nielsen, an attorney, author of The Markin Report, and host of “The Zoom Where It Happens.” Free CLE for attorneys available. To RSVP, click here. Want to help our grassroots group? Email if you’re interested in helping us at the event (setting up, signing people in, selling political buttons, and more).

Where: Max and Benny’s Restaurant and Deli, 461 Waukegan Rd., Northbrook
When: Program begins at 7pm; doors open at 6pm for conversation (food available for purchase until 6:45pm for those who are interested)

Click here to RSVP for Tenth Dems University’s “The Threat to Democracy is Bigger than Trump” on Tuesday November 14th, at Max and Benny’s in Northbrook.

Tenth Dems University isn’t a real college but our programs help inform Democrats in and around the 10th Congressional District. TDU helps energize those who already do a lot to support our candidates and brings others into the mix. It helps give them tools to support Democrats up and down the ballot, whether that’s discussing topics that might be part of a campaign, giving them voting information, and much more. When Democrats organize, we win.

Hope to see you at Max and Benny’s!
