Land and Sea Dept. gets a Prime Time spot at the MCA

With the opening of Cherry Circle Room and Game Room inside downtown's stately but hip Chicago Athletic Club Hotel, it's been a big year for Land and Sea Dept. Hell, it's been a big half decade. The group responsible for Longman & Eagle, Parson's Chicken & Fish, Lost Lake, and other spots has proven capable of executing a concept. That'll make Land and Sea a good first partner for the MCA's new Prime Time events, an after-hours series meant to bring together creative types from across Chicago's cultural landscape. Partner organizations curate a night that combines things like live music, art, film, and food—Land and Sea will juxtapose its cuisine with Dan Deacon's electro pop. Future partners include Pitchfork, the Metro, and Smart Bar.

Fri 10/2, 7-11 PM, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, 220 E. Chicago, 312-280-2660,, $20, $15 in advance, $10 members.
