Bon Appetit's Chicago Gourmet is soooo much fun! And I want to share my time there so that you can enjoy it next year!
This year the festival was September 23-24 2017, and next year the dates are already set for September 28-30, 2018-- Mark your calendar!
Location: Millennium Park
Ticket Price: about $215 ea
Option to buy tickets at pre-sale, which is a discount rate, but pre-sale was sold out in 2 minutes! I ended up paying full price. Sign up for email notifications and hopefully grab tickets at pre-sale price.
This event is 6 hours of all you can eat and drink! Plus it is at the end of summer, so it's great weather!
There are 13 Food Pavilions that serve food, and they are organized by flavor (BBQ, Mexican, etc). At each pavilion, there are 3-5 different restaurants serving bit size appetizers from 12P-3P. At 3P, all the pavilions switch out restaurants!
On top of it, there are booths upon booths of spirits and wines to try! Shout out to these vendors: RL Restaurant, Maetros, Absolut Elyx, Chloe, and Mezza!

See ya next Tuesday!
