The Deal

  • $35 for one ticket to The Dinner Party at City Winery ($49 value)

On Monday, December 1, at 6:30 p.m., ticket holders join host Elysabeth Alfano at City Winery in Chicago for a dinner party with New York Times best-selling author Rebecca Skloot, Chicago Tribune theater critic Chris Jones, and actor David Pasquesi for a meal prepared by a famous chef. During the dinner, Elysabeth leads an unscripted conversation with her four special guests on stage while audiences listen in and enjoy samples of the chef’s meal. The meal is slated to include raw winter squash salad and cassoulet polonaise with duck, smoked chicken, polish sausage, kraut, and beans.

Q&A with Elysabeth Alfano, Executive Producer And Host

What defines The Dinner Party?

The Dinner Party is about connection: with the celeb[rities] on stage, with the chef, with the audience at City Winery. Join us for a great time of food, wine and beer, chocolate, performances and unscripted conversation. Host Elysabeth Alfano invites three national or Chicago celebs and a known chef to a dinner party. Over food, wine, chocolate, Twitter, and a few impromptu performances, the unscripted conversations flow. Filmed live and streaming live on The Chicago Sun Times website, the audience is a part of the party and live filming at Chicago City Winery. In addition to the live show, audience members enjoy large tastings of the chef’s appetizer and entrée [and other local treats]. Audience members tweet in questions for the stage guests, making this one big, interactive dinner party.
