Now’s your chance to give back when you order a cold beer or a relaxing red with your meal! Chicago’s Encore Liquid Lounge just launched a “Pairs That Care” menu consisting of three delectable dishes that are each paired with a complementing beer or glass of wine. For each pairing sold now through May 31, 2012, Encore Liquid Lounge will donate a portion of the proceeds to individuals and organizations through Kiva.org. Kiva is a non-profit organization that enables worldwide micro-financing loans to help lift people out of poverty. After the “Pairs that Care” proceeds are donated and paid back by the borrower, Encore will re-invest those funds into another Kiva member, thus restaurant-goers will be helping people for generations to come.
The “Pairs That Care” menu includes:
- Bacon-Wrapped Dates stuffed with Goat Cheese — The pair who care: Unibroue La Fin Du Monde or Kung Fu Girl Riesling ($20)
- Pork Belly Sammies in a bed of Sweet Potato Fries — The pair who care: Goose Island Matilda or Heron Pinot Noir ($22)
- Deep Dish Pizza smothered in your choice of Cheese, Pepperoni or Chicago-Style Toppings — The pair who care: Great Lakes Elliot Ness Amber Lager or Banfi Chianti Classico ($20)
Encore Liquid Lounge is a casual lunch club and nighttime liquid lounge nestled in the heart of Chicago’s Theater District, adjacent to Kimpton’s Hotel Allegro. For more information or to make a reservation call: 312-338-3788 or visit www.encorechicago.com.
