First Bites Bash 2016

It's the first foodie celebration of the year, and the date is set for Thursday, January 26, 2017. A new location at Navy Pier, a new celeb chef host and 32 new restaurants are on the lineup for this 1-night only tasting party. Start 2017 off with this stylish celebration of the Chicago culinary scene... and do it with a deal: Early Bird tickets have just been posted.

Frontier

Food and liquor go together like Mike Ditka and facial hair, but it's not as easy as slapping together a plate of food with a random boozy beverage. It takes a special artistry and precision to make a masterful pairing, and when done right it can really make a memorable meal. There are plenty of places in Chicago who have got pairing down to a science, many of which are participating in Chicago Restaurant Week.
