One of Rush Hour’s most distinctive features is its pre-concert reception, where you can enjoy a snack, meet with friends, and mingle with the artists prior to the performance. Rush Hour is grateful to 2 local businesses for their support in providing these refreshments each week.

Trader Joe’s provides appetizers throughout the summer. Their friendly crew members work with Rush Hour’s staff and volunteers to create memorable pairings of food to Rush Hour’s weekly concert program themes. Please thank them for their 4 years of support the next time you stop in for your groceries (and a taste of whatever delectable new product they are serving at the sample station!)

Argo Tea quenches your thirst each week as you arrive at the concert. You may have spotted the Argo Tea server wheeling their cart loaded with gallons of tea down Rush Street to the Cathedral – rain or shine – every Tuesday. We’re delighted to say that you’ve helped make Argo Tea a success over the last 4 years of partnership: you can now visit 14 Chicago area locations, as well as outposts in New York and St. Louis. Their spicy and sweet pumpkin chai is a Rush Hour staff favorite for the fall months!
