The Duck Inn
Forget about all your other holiday parties. The holiday party of all holiday parties has officially arrived! We're thrilled to be teaming up with one of the top-rated TC event hosts of 2019, The Duck Inn, for our annual Chicago Christmakwanzakkah Party. Executive Chef/Owner Kevin Hickey, a veteran of Michelin Starred kitchens, totally blew attendees away with our last collaboration together back in March. So, when we were considering options for this year's holiday party, The Duck Inn was at the top of the list. In the spirit of the holidays, the format for this event series will be different than our typical event format - passed hors d'oeuvres cocktail party to start before moving into the seated portion of the party. The evening will kick off with a plethora of Chef Hickey's favorite canapés as you drink and mingle. Then, we'll take our seats for a large-format feast. Of course, we'll wrap up the night with a chef Q&A during dessert. For those of you who weren't able to attend our first event at The Duck Inn, you can read up on Chef Hickey's SUPER impressive background below. It speaks for itself!
