The friendly event planners with Dime Worldwide shepherd tours of up 120 passengers via trolley on progressive meals that stop at some of Chicago’s finest restaurants, bars, and clubs. From 5:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., parties start at Hubbard Inn, Roka Akor, The Drawing Room, or Maggiano’s with light hors d’oeuvres and signature drinks made from quality spirits instead of puréed autographs. En route to the next destination, riders sip specialty cocktails before disembarking at Estate or filing into Benchmark’s sleek, two-story sports bar to load plates from a buffet-style spread from 7 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. After dinner, trolleys weave through traffic to the final stop, for a nightcap and dessert until 10 p.m. at Studio Paris, The Underground, or The Mid, lounge hot spots known for sets from celebrity DJs and sentient speak ‘n’ says.
A portion of the proceeds benefits Ronald McDonald House charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana that support the betterment of children in the Midwest and nationwide. Participants should dress in business-casual attire to feel comfortable throughout the night and in case of spontaneous job interviews.
