DMK Sorta Marathon 2016


For some of us, that big ol’ Chicago Marathon is just too much work.

So, DMK thought, hey, let’s pay homage to the Marathon, but the rules are:

This is our third year and it just keeps getting better and better!

When: Saturday, October 8th (the day before the Chicago Marathon)

Time: Registration starts at 1:30p; race starts tentatively at 2pm

Where: Race starts at DMK Burger Bar (2954 N. Sheffield Ave.) and ends at Henry’s (18 W. Hubbard St.)

What: Participants will grab their swag and bibs at the corner of Sheffield and Wellington and, when the horn sounds, you will make your way to Henry’s, located in River North. Jenny Milkowski Fox 32 Chicago from FOX32’s morning news program “Good Day Chicago” will be our emcee extraordinaire and there to get you PUMPED.

How much: just $25! (includes t-shirt, sunglasses, free beer ’til it runs out at the end of the race!)

Rules: There aren’t any. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ You can take any route and run, walk, hop, skip, jump, bike… whatever you want, as long as you end up at the “finish line” a.k.a. Henry’s, where the free beer from Lagunitas Brewing Co and Marz Community Brewing will be a-flowin’ ’til it’s gone! In addition to some top prizes for the first 5 to get to the finish line, there will be a raffle to give away even more DMK prizes.

And the best part: 100% of the proceeds go to making a local child’s wish come true with the help of A Special Wish Chicago, a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to granting the wishes of children and young adults, from birth through age 20, in the greater Chicago-land area who have been diagnosed with a life threatening condition. Last year we raised over $2,000 and hope to raise a whole lotta money this year too!

Grab some friends and then grab some tickets here for a great time and a great cause…

Any questions, please e-mail Marina!

DMK #4 Time Out Magazine Battle of the Burgers 2016

“Creative (but never overdone) toppings make the smashed-patty burgers at DMK sing. Try the No. 4, with roasted hatch green chili, Sonoma Jack cheese, smoked bacon and a fried egg. For $3, make it a double. The fries aren’t to be overlooked either…”
Vote here for our #4 Hatch Green Chile burger with smoked bacon and a fried egg and we’ll love you forever!

Stop by DMK Burger Bar & Fish Bar Friday, 5/27 from 3pm-6pm and “Get High” with the new ferris wheel, DMK, and our amigos from Lagunitas Brewing Co. (get it, the ferris wheel gets you high and Lagunitas likes to be high and… it all makes perfect sense!)
