About The Dinner Party

Get Tix! The next Dinner Party is May 12th at City Winery and features Chef Pete of The Gage, actor Marc Grapey, Wilco’s Glenn Kotche and The Mix’s Kathy Hart of Eric and Kathy.  Partners of The Beethoven Festival will be the opening act. GET TIX!

On the March 31 Dinner Party, Michelin Star Chef Carrie Nahabedian of Naha and Brindille cooked for Rick Bayless, author Sara Paretsky, New Yorker cartoonist Pat Byrnes and host, Elysabeth Alfano. The opening act was the wonderful Joan Collaso.

Rick Bayless did a dramatic reading for Watermelon-Ginger Guacamole on The March 31st Dinner Party. Watch below!

Elysabeth Alfano, host of Fear No ART and now The Dinner Party, is branching out with a new show and new format.  The Dinner Party is a monthly show broadcast live on Sun Times-Splash Section website in front of a live audience.  Alfano invites 3 national or Chicago celebs (mostly artists, but also entrepreneurs and inventors) and a well-known chef to join her for dinner.  Over wine, food, chocolate, twitter and a few impromptu performances, the conversations flow!

Buy tickets! to be a part of the audience for the filming of the 90 minute show AND enjoy a HUGE sampling of the chef’s creations, plus wine and Vosges chocolate.  Can’t make the show?  Invite your friends over, watch The Dinner Party on The Sun Times- Splash Section website and have a dinner party of your own, while tweeting in your questions or comments during the show.  If your tweet is picked to be incorporated into the show, you will win great prizes like theater and dance tickets, CDs, book T-shirts and more!
