Oh, Chicago Gourmet, you always provide us with a weekend of tasty bites from so many of Chicago's great restaurants, enough wine, beer and cocktails to last us through the night and fantastic burger events. This year, Bon Appétit's festival, which takes place September 23–25, will have the theme "Food is Art!" It will be hosted by none other than Rick Bayless.
This Thursday, you can get your tickets to Chicago Gourmet discounted—there's a limited supply, but if you can snag them, tickets are $148 per person, per day or $250 for a weekend pass. After they sell out, tickets will start selling at their normal price ($185 per person, per day or $295 for a weekend pass). Tickets go on sale at 10am on Thursday, April 14 on Chicago Gourmet's website, so make sure you grab your tickets to the gigantic summer food fest early.
