Dining with the Dead

For probably the first time in history, we're going to mix spiritualism with... kale.

The Amazing Kale Burger isn't like any other cafe. Their top secret recipe is created in house, and served in a side show atmosphere. Chicagoans are raving about this new vegan fare that includes no dead animals. But dead people... we'll see what we can do.

After our successful Seance event last month, we're going to do it again, but this time it includes an unusual and amazing dinner!

The Dinner:

Though not normally open in the evenings, The Amazing Kale Burger will let you in for a private dining experience.

You'll be treated to one of their delicious meals with soft drinks and dessert! BYOB if you'd like something more "spirited" to drink.

If you're not vegan, don't be afraid! Kale Burgers are enjoyed by omnivores as well! Really they are. Check the reviews! 

The Seance:

In a seance, a group of people concentrate on contacting the dead through the assistance of a medium. And while there's no evidence whatsoever that any of them were successful, the tradition continues today. 

In our version, award-winning entertainers Jonny Zavant and Thom Britton set the stage for an eerie evening of playing with the dead in spaces catered to their attendance.

The show combines an historical look at the meaning and tradition of seances with a practical demonstration of what you would have witnessed at a seance over 100 years ago.

The only difference is, this show is fun, engaging, and hilarious.

Please keep in mind that we don't expect to contact the dead or believe that such things are possible, but if the dead should drop by for a visit, we'll be ready for them.
