Don't let Asian carp take a bite out of the Chicago River or the Great Lakes- bite back!

Friends and our partners spent the last six months urging Congress to require Washington DC to release the Brandon Road study that outlines how to prevent Asian carp from passing upstream into the Chicago River system and the Great Lakes. Finally on August 7, the draft was released. It's time for a celebratory bite of Asian carp.

Now in its third year, Friends of the Chicago River is putting this notorious species where it belongs — on your plate. The Asian Carp Grill takes place on Wednesday, August 23, 2017, at 5:30 p.m., on the plaza of the McCormick Bridgehouse & Chicago River Museum, located on Chicago's Riverwalk. This summer evening features Margaret Frisbie, executive director, and John Quail, director of watershed planning, from Friends of the Chicago River, interactive exhibits from Forum Studio, as well as a tasting of Asian carp, grilled by Dirk from Dirk's Fish & Gourmet Shop.
Tickets to this BYOB event are priced at $15 apiece, or two-for-$25, which includes after-hours admission to the museum. For tickets or more information, call the museum director, Josh Coles, at (312) 939-0490, ext. 28 or go to
