Local Foodies Gear Up for "Chefs in the City"

Annual event features top chefs, benefits Vital Bridges Center



    Local Foodies Gear Up for "Chefs in the City"
    Chefs in the City allows you to mix and mingle with your favorite chefs, and course, eat their food.

    It would take the better part of a year -- not to mention most of your salary -- to visit all of the best restaurants and chefs in the city.

    You can knock a bunch out in one night at the eighth annual Chefs and the City, July 27 at The Ritz-Carlton Chicago Grand Ballroom from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

    Some of the top chefs in the city will be participating, including Heather Terhune, Chris Pandel, Ryan Poli and Paul Virant.

    Tickets to the event are $250 for the Main Tasting and subsequent dance party with beats by DJ Megan Taylor. A $400 VIP ticket includes a private reception. Or you can just buy a $50 ticket to the dance party, but the whole point of a chef's event is to eat, isn't it?

    Proceeds from the event benefit Vital Bridges Center on Chronic Care, which helps people impacted by HIV/AIDS.

    Tickets are available at http://www.vitalbridges.org or 773-271-9161.
