Chicago, IL: June 6-9, 2019



We’ve long wanted to include a foodie trip to Chicago in this auction... Here’s a chance for two couples to get up close and personal with the Windy City.


  • $1,000 voucher to use for air travel. (Winner is responsible for additional costs and upgrades.)

  • Deluxe accommodations for two couples in River North near the Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier and Millennium Park.

  • Thursday: Dinner at critically-acclaimed Smyth for their eight-course tasting menu with pairings.

  • Friday: Morning meet-up with now-Chicago resident John Kessler (former AJC Dining Critic, and good friend to GK and Team Hidi) for a walking foodie tour of the city, including Dim Sum, Korean and Thai.

  • Saturday: Walk down to Willis Tower, and skip the line with Fast Pass access to the 103rd floor with the 360-degree Sky Deck and glass-bottom platforms; stroll through Millennium Park; take in Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park; watch the boats at Navy Pier; and end at the Art Institute with Fast Pass access to one of the country’s most phenomenal art museums.

  • Saturday night, it’s game on! Literally. Four seats (Field Box 129, Row 14) to one of the biggest rivalries in baseball: Cubbies vs. Cardinals at the historic Wrigley Field with its ivy-covered brick outfield wall, iconic red marquee and hand- turned scoreboard.

  • After the game, head to Concentrics’ ultra-swanky VU Skyward Rooftop Bar and Restaurant for dinner and drinks in one of three bars with unparalleled views of the city.

  • Sunday: Brunch at Michelin Star restaurant Roister - think fried bologna sandwiches and righteous Micheladas before heading homeward.

Have the “time of your life” in Chicago!
