Hot Tamales and Pumpkin Treats Celebrate Fall at Prairie Fire Restaurant

Hot Tamale! Let Prairie Fire (215 N. Clinton; 312-382-8300) warm you up this Thursday, October 20 with fall-flavored tamales being served at 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. outside (or in the bar if it rains) of the restaurant for just $5 per tamale.

Praire Fire has partnered with Three Sisters Garden’s Tracey Vowell to offer guests three kinds of tamales: the Slow Braised Barbeque Grass-fed Beef Tamale, the Maple Creek Farm Guajillo Pepper Braised Pork Tamale and the Roasted Luxury Heirloom Pumpkin, Mushroom and Poblano Pepper Tamale, and will be joined by friend Chef Chris Djuric, making a special appearance at the event to help craft the tasty tamales.
Three Sisters Garden supplies Prairie Fire with vegetables throughout the year and has been growing 1,500 pounds of pumpkins specifically for this event. In addition to the tamales, Prairie Fire will be serving grilled pumpkin brushed with a honey butter glaze. Pumpkin fans also will enjoy Prairie Fire’s delicious house made pumpkin.

But wait, there’s more. Friend and neighbor from Chicago’s French Market, Sweet Miss Givings bakery’s famous cupcake truck will be parked in front of Prairie Fire with proceeds from cupcake sales going to the Chicago House charity providing housing and supportive services to HIV-affected patients and at-risk families.
