The Hard Rock Cafe Chicago is throwing an outdoor bash on Friday, June 14 from 6-9:30pm to celebrate their new menu as well as unveil their community-inspired mural by Chicago-based and globally-known artist Rahmaan Statik (Instagram: @rahmaanstatik). Limited open to the public tickets are $75 with a large portion of the proceeds benefiting The Trotter Project.
The Hard Rock Cafe is bringing their menu back to its roots of burgers and creamy, frosty shakes. The night will showcase food, music, urban art, philanthropy, and community. Guests will stroll the red carpet to the tented parking lot where they will be treated to DJ entertainment and aerial performances by NewMoon Chicago while trying champagne, new boozy shakes, and Hard Rock's burger flavors.
The evening will also include a donation to The Trotter Project along with a silent auction featuring unique culinary experiences to benefit the foundation. The Trotter Project is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization furthering Chef Charlie Trotter's legacy and providing opportunities through education, mentorship, and the pursuit of excellence in the global culinary and hospitality industries.
The Hard Rock Cafe team has tapped Chicago-based and globally-known artist Rahmaan Statik (Instagram: @rahmaanstatik) to create a massive mural on the Ontario Street side of the venue. Statik's mural encompasses the 4 Mottos that the Hard Rock Cafe was founded upon - Love All Serve All, Music For Life, Take Time To Be Kind, All Is One. The mural will feature imagery as designed by Statik that combines music icons, Chicago skyline, the spirit of community and inclusiveness.

As a co-founder of RK Design, graphic arts, and mural collective, he has produced more than 400 murals and has worked with corporate clients such as Coca Cola, Toyota, The village of Rosemont, and Red Bull.
