Tuesdays on the Terrace features Chicago’s quintessential jazz musicians, including the Fred Anderson Legacy Band, acclaimed cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, and saxophone and clarinetist Mwata Bowden on the MCA’s terrace and sculpture garden. The performances are hosted by Al Carter-Bey, along with Richton Guy Thomas, Linda Hall, and Leslie Keros, from WHPK 88.5fm.

A dinner buffet, created by Puck’s Cafe, features fresh, locally grown produce: $24 per person, tables are limited, call for reservations, 312.397.4034, or email.

The buffet features a changing menu of international barbeque and side dishes inspired by Korean, American, Italian, and Latin American cuisine. Dishes include kimchi salad, Carolina pulled pork sandwiches, panzanella salad, and Argentinean grilled short ribs with chimichurri. See menu.

Lighter fare—bratwursts ($8), burgers ($8), and salads ($6)—is available on the lower terrace and may be purchased from the outdoor grill. Assorted beverages—beer ($6), wine ($8), and seasonal cocktails ($10)—are also available from the cash bar on the lower and upper terraces. Outside food and beverages are not allowed in the sculpture garden. Guests may bring their own blankets or rent an MCA lawn chair ($5 each) to relax on the garden lawn. In case of rain, the events take place inside Puck’s Café. Tables are limited and dinner reservations are recommended, call 312.397.4034.
