How Dine-Around Works


Thursday Night Out runs every Thursday between June 10th and September 9th from 5 to 9pm. $20 ticket booklets contain 4 dine-around tickets. One dine-around ticket is good for one item off the Thursday Night Out menu. For every two ticket booklets purchased, customers receive one complimentary $5 DTOP gift certificate good at participating shops on Thursday evenings during the TNO season.

Ticket booklets are available at the Downtown Oak Park ticket tent at Lake and Marion on Thursday nights.

More than 20 Downtown Oak Park restaurants offer a variety of drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts on the TNO menu and allow diners to eat inside or carry out. Tables are also set up outside for patrons to enjoy dining al fresco.

Becoming a non-profit vendor at Thursday Night Out

You must be an Oak Park based not-for-profit. If two Oak Park based organizations per night are not available, we will consider Chicago or Illinois based organizations. A maximum of two Thursday nights is allowed. Vendors will be selected by an advisory committee. If your organization is selected to participate, you will be contacted. Please submit your requests by emailing naomi@downtownoakpark.net.
