About The Dinner Party

The July 10th Dinner Party in Grant Park as part of Taste of Chicago with famed chef Andrew Zimmerman of Sepia, George Wendt, Felicia Fields and Ji of Windy City Live was SOLD OUT. Don’t let that happen again! The next Dinner Parties are September 23 and October 27.  Mark your calendars and enjoy the July 10th Dinner Party highlights 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!
