It's the most wonderful time of the year! Yes, we all love the holidays, but I'm talking about Chicago Restaurant Week. Those glorious ten days in February when restaurants you've been dying to try offer delicious deals. This year's 5th annual event will take place from February 17-26.
And if this event couldn't get sweeter, United Airlines and Stephanie Izard (Top Chef winner and chef/co-owner of Girl & the Goat) will host the Official Kick-Off Event - First Bites Bash - on Thursday, February 2, 2012 6-9PM inside the Great Hall of Chicago Union Station.
Over 50 of Chicago's best chefs and restaurants will offer savory and sweet tastings. And you can pair your tasting with Moet Hennessy wines, Belvedere cocktails and Blue Moon craft beers.
The fun doesn't end there either. No meal is ever complete without dessert, so Groupon is hosting a Dessert Lounge.
This is heaven folks.
