Here’s How It Works

You head over to Showclix and snag a $35 ticket (kids = $12). On Sunday afternoon, come on down to YouthPlaces, at 711 West Commons on the North Side. We’ll give you 7 tickets to taste your way around the event. And not to worry, they’ll be more tickets available on site (in case you need seconds of the pulled pork or mac n’ cheese or any of the other deliciousness).

Bar Marco will also be on site, serving Wigle Whiskey cocktails, wines, and a handsome list of fall beers: Great Lakes Brewing Company‘s Spacewalker and Eliot Ness, The Brooklyn Brewery‘s Pumpkin Ale, Deschutes Brewery‘s Mirror Pond and Magic Hat. All of the drinks are just $5 and can be purchased with drink tickets at the event.

And, Red Ribbon Soda will also be there, pouring! Root beer, anyone?

This event and participating chefs are helping to support YouthPlaces job training for the food service industry.
