DMK Burger Bar The Chump sandwich

Well, it’s been one heckuva political season, hasn’t it?

Preeeeeetty sure we can all agree that the only bologna we should have to deal with should be fried and nestled in a tasty sandwich.
I think we can also agree that the only thing anyone should be grabbing is one of these.
The Chump Sandwich: fried bologna, mustard, Cheez Whiz, topped with our crispy onion strings.

Even better, part of the proceeds of all sales will go to support the Chicago Foundation for Women.
This amazing organization puts time, talent, and money to work for women and girls who lack economic security and opportunity, freedom from violence, and equitable access to health care and services.
And we’re thrilled to help out the cause.

Starts today at DMK Burger Bar Lakeview, and available through Election Day, November 28th!
(I mean, that’s what he said, right??)

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!
