Jettasetting Weekend: Chicago Gourmet, presented by Bon Appétit, Sept. 27-29 (yes, there are still tickets, but..)

This is going to be super YUMMY!

A true foodie fête, Chicago Gourmet, presented by Bon Appétit, is a true celebration of food and wine showcasing more than 100 of Chicago’s finest restaurants and chefs, as well as hundreds of renowned vintners, spirit makers, and premium breweries from around the world. Held in Millennium Park, attendees will enjoy dozens of live cooking demonstrations, expert seminars, gourmet tastings, and book signings by internationally renowned chefs, master sommeliers, and winemakers.

You’ve got the Hamburger Hop® kicking off the weekend, an exclusive Grand Cru wine tasting is featured on Saturday and Sunday, and the Bon Appétit and Chicago Gourmet Dine Around extends the event beyond Millennium Park into some of the area’s best restaurants.

I’ve been talking about this hot time since May – but I know some of you have just decided to get tickets.  American Express card holders (or those who know someone that will let them use their AMEX) are in luck, at time of posting, there were still some special ticket packages including both a Main Event ticket (12-5PM) and a same day Grand Cru ticket (2-4PM) for Sunday, September 29. Bonus: this $358 package is only ($286 w/discount + tax) for AMEX holders. But I would not sleep on this if I were you.
