CHICAGO, CHICAGO, THAT TODDLIN’ TOWN
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!
