Takeout Picnic in the Park

Very_large_central_street_facebook_cover_10_
On June 23 from 6:30 - 9PM, Central Street Evanston invites you to join us for a summer evening takeout picnic in the park. Order take out from one of our many Central Street restaurants, grab your picnic blanket, and come listen to indie darlings, The Oh Yeahs, under the lights in Independence Park. We'll kick things off at 6:30PM, so get there early to claim your spot and find your friends. 

**Take note we are at capacity and will have a full park tonight!**

Here are some fun specials from our participating food establishments. Keep checking back for updates, and we highly encourage pre-ordering ahead of time so you make it to the show on time!
