Time Out says

In The French Dispatch—director Wes Anderson's latest pastel-hued, ultra-symmetrical flick, which is set for wide release on October 22—a group of zany journalists run amok in 1960s Paris while working for a New Yorker-esque magazine. You can get a taste of the movie's European whimsy in Chicago for a few weeks this fall at Café Le Sans Blague, a French Dispatch-themed menu takeover at Logan Square's Dayglow.

Visitors can choose from four themed coffee drinks: The Cycling Reporter (distilled coffee, juniper, lemon, alcohol-free champagne); The Concrete Masterpiece (espresso, chicory, cream, demerara sugar, cinnamon); Revisions to a Manifesto (black French roast de Belleville); and The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner (hibiscus, flash brewed coffee and verjus rouge, a type of juice made from unripe grapes). Purchase of each drink—which ranges from $6–$12—comes with your choice of The French Dispatch merch, including enamel pins, totes, T-shirts, notebooks, pencil cases and copies of The French Dispatch magazine (while supplies last). 

The takeover runs through November 15. Don't forget to snap a Wes Anderson-style symmetrical pic of your drink before you leave!
