Happy Monday, Bitches! You can certainly tell spring is on its way, given the gorgeous sunny skies and 60 degree weather this past weekend. I sure hope this weather lasts longer than a Chanel sample sale. Here’s what’s happening this week in Chi Town.


Unless you are a Duke fan or Wisconsin fan, it’s just another Monday day night. Don’t fret, we’ve got a Dinner Party like no other cure your case of the Mondays. Elysabeth Alfano, host of The Dinner Party, is branching out with a new show and new format. Each week, Alfano invites 3 national celebs and a well-known chef to join her for dinner. Since 2015 is the Year of Trotter on The Dinner Party, each show is guaranteed to have one of Chicago’s Best Chefs. This month, she’s featuring Chef Ryan McCaskey of Acadia. Join her and Chef Ryan at a Dinner Party like no other.You can buy tickets here. City Winery is located at 1200 W Randolph St.
