Anyone who thinks celebrity chefs, chocolate, and raising money for culinary scholarships are all good things officially has plans on February 25. For the Love of Chocolate's Scholarship Foundation Annual Gala is coming up, and this black tie event raises money for scholarships to The French Pastry School at the City Colleges of Chicago. The night is centered around (shocking) chocolate, and guests can expect to sample endless decadent treats all night long. You'll also be hobnobbing with famous cooks like Johnny Iuzzini and other familiar faces from around Chicago. They had us at the word "chocolate."
Get tickets for you and your culinarily enlightened friends at the foundation's website, then locate the black tie outfit you've been saving. This is when you wear it. Just don't spill.
For the Love of Chocolate's Scholarship Foundation Annual Gala at Merchandise Mart, 222 Merchandise Mart Plaza (between Lower Orleans & Orleans streets); 312-527-4141.
