Wednesday, August 03, 2016

6th Annual Chicago in White Pop up Dining Experience to Take Over Hyde Park and Support the SECC



Chicago in White returns for its 6th annual celebration on Saturday, August 6th. Chicago in White is inspired by the 1893 “City Beautiful” movement, designed to bring the city together in appreciation of its incredible aesthetic and design. Every year, Chicago in White finds a location to stage its pop-up picnic style dinner party— providing all tables, chairs and entertainment. This year’s secret location will be announced via email to all ticket holders the morning of the event. Guests then pack their picnic baskets, dawn their all white attire, and head to Chicago in White’s outdoor location to begin an evening of breaking bread with old and new friends. There will also be two types of ticket options this year—$35 for General Admission and $150 for tickets to the VIP Chloe

Wine Collection Experience which will include a delicious meal and wine pairing for two! Menu and pairing details, along with ticket info, are available at:

Chloe Wine Collection has signed on as this year’s Presenting Sponsor. Guests will be given the opportunity to pre-order their wine from the collection, sample/purchase wine on-site, and compete in the #ChloeInWhite Best Dressed Contest. The Chloe Wine Collection offers the structure and depth of exceptional fruit—sourced from the world’s preeminent growing regions to create elegant wines with sophisticated intensity. Made for wine enthusiasts who appreciate all things extraordinary and timeless, the Chloe Wine Collection is crafted to inspire.

For the second consecutive year in a row, Eataly returns to Chicago in White as a participating sponsor. Eataly will host an in-store demonstration on how to perfect the art of picnic baskets, as well as easy picnic recipes made using their high-quality local and Italian products. At Chicago in White, Eataly will provide samples of their housemade gelato, and guests can also enjoy a complimentary demonstration and tasting of their housemade mozzarella.

This year’s non-profit partner is the South East Chicago Commission which pursues its mission through a number of programs and initiatives designed to make its communities more attractive places to live, learn, work, and play. We are excited to announce that this will be the first Chicago in White event held in the Greater Hyde Park area. The exact location will be revealed to attendees the morning of the event via email.
