Our inspiration,

Big Night

The Thirsty Fork Founders Club

Friends. Family. Joy. These are the reasons we love to share meals together, to come together at the table, and eat food that transports us to other times and places, back to our roots or across the world.

At The Thirsty Fork, we created an exclusive, private dining experience for our most valued supporters as a way to share in the celebration of our establishment as a community eatery, and to enjoy the fruits of our kitchen this year, and in the many years to come. This group will be known as The Founders Club.

The Founders Club will join together as a family monthly, to share artfully crafted multi-course meals, taste new, seasonal dishes for the restaurant menu and sample small batch beer releases from our partners Oak Park Brewing Company. Joining the club—accepting membership during The Thirsty Fork’s opening year—supports local enterprise, thoughtful food policies, and great beer.  Most importantly it ensures that your true friends and chosen family will continue gather around a joyful table filled with food, wine, and beer for years to come.


The Founders Club is only accepting members during the first year of The Thirsty Fork’s opening. Membership is non-transferrable, and renewable for life.
