4-Star Restaurant Group’s Monthly Update


Ballpark Bites Plate in Honor of Opening Day, Peeps for Our Peeps in Celebration of Easter, and More…

Chicago, IL (March, 2012) -- 4-Star Restaurant Group, the company that’s brought Chicago some of its most popular neighborhood restaurants, including The Smoke Daddy, Frasca Pizzeria & Wine Bar, Dunlays, D.O.C. Wine Bar and soon-to-be, Crosby's Kitchen (June 2012), has some exciting events coming up over the next month, including:

Meet the Artist

You may have noticed the beautiful artwork featured on the walls of Dunlays on the Square, well now is your chance to meet the artist behind the work! Dunlay’s rotating art exhibit features a new local artist every several months, and for the first time ever they are offering the public a chance to “Meet the Artist”. On March 29th at 7p.m, Dunlays will host an event to meet the currently featured artist, Shawn Stucky. So stop in and meet the man behind the artwork, while enjoying $4 draft beers and brand new summer cocktails!

About Shawn Stucky:

Stucky was born red/green colorblind and moved from McPherson, Kansas to Chicago in 2002. It was by coincidence in 2006 that he created his first screen print. His process is based on simultaneously engaging his conscious and unconscious mind to express an intense emotion or complex thought based on personal experience. He utilizes the challenge of being red/green colorblind in his work by relying on value more than color. Stucky has shown in various spaces in Chicago, New York and other cites on a national and international scale.


Ballpark Bites

Starting April 5, the day of the Cubs opener, and throughout the remainder of the season Frasca Pizzeria and Wine Bar will be featuring a “Ballpark Bites” butchers plate, in honor of Chicago’s baseball teams. The Ballpark Bites Plate includes all of the ballpark foodie essentials; a soft pretzel, chorizo, mustard dipping sauce, cracker jacks and corn nuts. The perfect pre or post-game snack!

Tax Day Refund

Now that everyone has payed their taxes the Fourstar Restaurant Group would like to give their patrons a break. Stop into any Fourstar Restaurant on April 16, and receive a tax free meal! The Smoke Daddy, Frasca Pizzeria and Wine Bar, both D.O.C Wine Bars and both Dunlays will be taking off the taxes from each bill, all day long.
