Foodie Event at the Chicago Auto Show? Who Knew?!

The Chicago Auto Show is hosting the First Look for Charity event on Friday 2/13, and I’m so excited that I was invited to attend as a food blogger. I had no idea that the Chicago Auto show hosts this fabulous event every year. Who knew? Not me, apparently…
This black-tie event is held at McCormick place with gourmet food and drink, and a sneak preview of the Chicago Auto Show, all in the name of charity. 18 local charities will benefit from this event, which raised $2 million last year.
I was invited to a media preview event, and the food that will be at this event is truly going to be a treat, as you can see from the pictures below.  Zed 451 (one of my favorites), Roy’s, Real Urban Barbecue and Adobo Grill are just a few restaurants that will be represented.
In addition to the delicious food, guests also get to roam around the auto show, which will feature live music, and there will also be a Ford Explorer & Ford Fusion given away at the event.
The great news is that there’s still time to get tickets! To get in on all of the fabulosity,

Hope to see you there!
