Canada Day at Lost Lake


Lost Lake is celebrating Canada Day with Canadians! And they’re really bringing their “eh” game: Canadian bartenders, Canadian Spirits, and Canadian food by a Canadian chef!

Led by Mike Ryan (Canadian) and featuring guest bartenders Christina Veira (Canadian) and Juliana Wolkowski (Canadian) — with a special appearance by Dave Mitton (Canadian) — they’ll be serving a menu of cocktails featuring Lot 40, Pike Creek, Gooderham & Worts, and J.P. Wiser's (you guessed it, all Canadian!)

Also on offer will be a menu of Canadian snacks by chef Will Serre (Canadian) and Lost Lake’s Fred Noinaj (sorry, not Canadian) will feature Poutine (mushroom gravy and goat cheese curds over fries), Maple Braised Pork Belly (Seared and served on toast with charred pickled onions and cured egg yolk), and Wilensky's Special (Salami, bologna, yellow mustard, and swiss on a kaiser roll; pickle on the side).

And because when our political climate turns sour, a go-to joke seems to be “I’m moving to Canada!”, we’re going to be donating $1 of each Canadian item sold (food and drink) to Organized Communities Against Deportation (OCAD) — an undocumented-led group that organizes against deportations, detention, criminalization, and incarceration, of Black, brown, and immigrant communities in Chicago and surrounding areas.

And those who arrive donning Canadian Tuxedos, there will be special treats... See you there, eh!
