Chicagoans will get an up-close-and-personal look -- and hopefully a taste -- when the "Top Chef Tour" hits the city this week.
A customized 18-wheeler semi-truck will pull onto East Illinois Street at North Michigan Avenue Thursday and Friday for a series of live interactive shows and events.
Season 6 chef'testants Mike Isabella and Kevin Gillespie will be on hand to host all of the fun, which includes sample food tastings, gourmet cooking tips, autographs and "Top Chef" themed activities such as a Quickfire Challenge and other games.
The live interactive shows will be held at 10:30 a.m., 12 p.m. and 1:30 p.m.
Pre-registration is closed, but free tickets are available on a first come, first served basis. Log on to www.bravotv.com/thetour for more information.
