Peach! Your favorite LGBTQ+ event series that unifies and celebrates queer women & femme family has returned for 2019!
This year's series is "Peach Presents: The Legends," with Peach recreating legendary parties and gatherings that made the history books with a modern, queer flair and Peach’s unique flavor. The events include "PlayBOI," our rebellious and inclusive flip of the 1979 Playboy Roller Disco and Pajama Party; "Carnival," a Chicago-style recreation of the annual cultural celebration and global phenomenon; "Met Gala: Threads of a Riot," an evening inspired by the iconic annual event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC but with a focus on the queer community's impact on the fashion world; and "Surrealist Dinner Party," an intimate dinner party based on the famous Rothschild Surrealist Ball in Paris.
Now time for the grande finale...Peach Presents: Cloud9 A Surreal Dining Experience
Peach queerifies the famous and exclusive Surrealist Ball held on a September night in the 1970s at Château de Ferrières by Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, member of the ultra-wealthy Rothschild banking family. The requirements for the evening were ”black tie, long dresses & Surrealists heads," nothing more, nothing less. Peach will transform this iconic night into an intimate gathering consisting of surrealist art, mind blowing performances, a seductive multi-course meal and exquisite cocktail pairings. We deserve a seat at every table.
- Menu & Cocktails curated by the geniuses at Bad Hunter. Tickets to the Cloud9 Surreal Dining Experience will include a 3-Course family style menu & 4 cocktails.
Bad Hunter is a veg-forward bar and restaurant, located on Chicago's prestigious 'Restaurant Row'. Executive Chef Dan Snowden takes a progressive approach to every dish; creating a space for Midwestern produce to shine as the focal point of his menus. With a focus on sustainability, hyper-seasonality, and championing independent and local farmers and producers, Bad Hunter's menu is fluid and changes often.
- Surprises performances throughout the evening
- Be prepared to be transported into the clouds for a Surrealist fantasy.
We recommend sipping on the event's signature vodka drink because Tito’s Handmade Vodka will be donating $1,500 to Free Write Arts & Literacy.

Tito's Handmade Vodka:
Tito’s Handmade Vodka is produced in Austin at Texas’ oldest legal distillery. Love has always been at the heart of this company. Back in 1992, years before he sold his first case, Tito started making vodka to give as gifts. Its popularity quickly spread among his friends and family, and he soon became known as "the vodka guy." When Tito decided to really make a go of it in the spirits business, he started supporting charity events around Austin one bottle at a time, and gave away, by all reasonable standards, a ridiculous amount of vodka.
