What's the urgency? Aside from helping out an amazing cause, a simple Friday night dinner turns into a food festival with substantial bites from over 60 chefs. Though it's hard to narrow down the culinary talent, some notable participants this year include: Patrick Fahey (Sixteen at Trump Tower), Ryan Poli (Tavernita), David Posey (Blackbird), Tony Priolo (Piccolo Sogno), Brian Huston (Publican), and many more. Of course, there will also be plenty of beer, wine, and cocktails — obviously.
If you really want to go big, there's also a VIP Chef's Table, a seated dinner experience, complete with wine pairings. Whichever route you choose, may we suggest another plan for your weekend: a trip to the gym.
What: Meals on Wheels Celebrity Chef Ball
When: Friday, October 12. VIP Chef's Table: 6 p.m.; Tasting Party: 8:30 p.m.
Where: Venue One, 1044 West Randolph Street (at Carpenter Street); 312-327-0111 Tickets: VIP Chef's Table, $350; Tasting Party, $150
