Just when the weather has many Midwesterners thinking about exchanging snow for warm, sunny skies, “Escape the Winter: Experience Australia” comes to Chicago’s Trump International Hotel & Tower and its famed restaurant, Sixteen, January 23, 2011.
Held from 1 to 5 p.m., the event is a chance to leave the house to the family’s Chicago Bears fan while savoring the wine, food, music and art of Australia. The event’s host is Sixteen Executive Chef Frank Brunacci with co-sponsors of the Australian Government and Wine Australia.
“Experience Australia” is also a chance to pick up some flora, fauna and wine region information for a country so far south of the US border it is now summer there.
The Cost is $45 per person but proceeds go to Chicago’s Mercy Home for Boys and Girls. See information and tickets
