Hold off on those Olive Garden reservations for just a bit longer— there are still a few events you can get into. Chicagoist recommends Festivale, a festival bringing together lots of local and regional breweries as well as food from City Provisions, Nacional 27 and others. It's September 14 at Carmichael's Warehouse, tickets are $65, they benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation— and they go on sale today at noon, so you know where you want to be then.
And there are still a few couples tickets (no individuals) left for tonight's event at the Hyatt Regency Chicago with Jamie Oliver, put on with Momma Cuisine and benefiting local good food for kids and families education group Purple Asparagus. It's at 7 p.m., but tickets are on sale via Eventbrite only until noon; go here.
