Found Kitchen and Social House is a wonderful Evanston restaurant that I’ve been meaning to write about for months now. That review will happen (that’s a promise), but as time has slipped away, I want to mention the cool Moveable Feast dinner series that kicks off this week. Once a month, Chef Nicole Pederson and owner Amy Morton will partner with local food and drink professionals (bartenders, cider-makers, farmers, sommeliers, etc.) to host a fun themed evening of locally-focused food and drink. Not surprisingly, the Moveable Feasts take place in different locations around the city. Proceeds from each event will go to a charity that fits the evening’s theme.

The first Moveable Feast, “Cider House Rules on the River” is set to take place on Tuesday, October 8. The venue is an unusual (but very cool) one—Michael Heltzer’s boathouse on the Chicago River, one of only two original boathouses in the city. Nicole Pederson is pairing up with Virtue Cider’s Greg Hall to create a meal that celebrates autumn. Each of the four-courses is paired with one of Virtue’s ciders. Proceeds will benefit Found Chicago Boarding and Training Center, Heltzer’s dog rescue and rehabilitation charity.

Cider House Rules on the River is happening Tuesday, October 8 at 4108 N. Rockwell. The event starts at 6:30. Tickets are $80 and can be purchased through Brown Paper Tickets.
