Toast of the Town

Foodies rejoice- this is your quick pick for not to miss events of the year. “Toast of the Town” at the Field Museum features 500 world-class wines paired with gourmet dishes from over 25 of Chicago’s finest restaurants. Seriously, this culinary showcase reads like a who’s who of the Chicago restaurant scene with the likes of Aria, Blackbird, Japonais, Tru, Trattoria No. 10 and many, many more serving up signature sampling plates.

Hosted by Wine Enthusiast magazine, the annual gala will take place on Thursday, May 6th and has all elements in place to provide a rich, cultural evening. From the exquisite food pairings to the live music by Joey Edwin of Multi-Media Music, Inc. it’s ultimately the setting that proves to be the perfect pairing. The Field Museum sets the scene as a perfect local to satisfy your senses and thirst for knowledge and sets the stage for you to sip, socialize, and expand your palate. Guests have the opportunity to meet, greet, mix and mingle with worldly wine makers and world-renowned chefs and learn about the wines straight from the source- those most passionate and close to the action. Sample flavors from across the globe from Marlborough and Montalcino to New Zealand and Italy.

VIP tickets give you access to a private pre-event tasting at 6 pm of rare, reserve and estate wines and include admission to the museum.
