Bon Appetit signed on as the official sponsor of this year's Chicago Gourmet. The two day event on September 25 and 26 in Millennium Park features tastings, chef demonstrations, and a good excuse to drink and be merry during the middle of a beautiful summer day. In the press release, editor-in-chief Barbara Fairchild said, “It’s a city of great restaurants with much diversity, talented and innovative chefs, and an enthusiastic foodie public that enjoys it all." Tickets for the event are on a massive "early registration" sale now, meaning you can get the two day pass for $175, which is about how much a single day was up for last year. Tickets are available here.
