When: Thu., Aug. 12, 7 p.m. 2010
Benefiting Share Our Strength's efforts to combat childhood hunger, the roster of headliners at this event reads like a who's-who of Chicago's culinary cognoscenti, starting with "chef chair" Mindy Segal and honoree Rick Bayless. Food offerings prepared by local chefs draw from a "street food" theme, with beer contributed by Goose Island and Stella Artois. VIP tickets include a gift bag, complimentary valet, and admission to a Chef's After-Party starting at 10 PM.
Price: $120, $95 advance, VIP $225, $150 advance
