If you want to sample food from some of the most popular suburban restaurants, learn about bourbon and listen to live music after work today, you're in luck.
Organizers of Chefs' Fest 2012 say tickets still are available for the feeding frenzy set for 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center, 1551 N. Thoreau Drive, Schaumburg.
"Tickets have been selling quite well, but unless there's a tidal wave of sales, I don't think people will be turned away," said David Parulo, president of the Woodfield Chicago Northwest Convention Bureau. The group has been sponsoring the food and beverage showcase for 19 years.
Parulo said in previous years the group has sold about 200 tickets at the door, and he's anticipating this year won't buck that trend.
Tickets at the door cost $30, but attendees can still get the advance-purchase price of $25 if they buy online at chefsfest.com. Parking is free; donations of nonperishable foods to the Greater Chicago Food Depository are encouraged.
Chefs from more than 40 suburban restaurants will share food samples, and recreation and hospitality professionals will share information about their venues. Three demonstrations offered during the event revolve around beverages with tutorials on bourbon, beer and local wines. Live acoustic music will entertain the crowds.
The doors will open at 4:30 p.m. for meeting professionals who can talk with restaurant managers and event planners before the hungry throngs arrive.
