Join Chaz Ebert at The Dinner Party on April 6th

Chaz Ebert, publisher of Ebert Digital and president of Ebert Productions, will be an honored guest on host Elysabeth Alfano's program, "The Dinner Party," scheduled to take place in Chicago on Monday, April 6th. Alfano's show invites three celebrities from different backgrounds to participate in an engaging, unscripted discussion while enjoying a feast prepared by a known chef who is, in this case, Ryan McCaskey of Acadia cooks, a Five Diamond, Michelin Star and James Beard Award nominee. 175 audience members also have the opportunity to share in the mouth-watering meal.

Joining Chaz on the program are Sandro, an internationally acclaimed photographer and director, and George Lepauw, a classical pianist who was named the 2014 Chicagoan of the Year for Classical Music and is the founder of the International Beethoven Festival. Fashion illustrator Rosemary Fanti will also be in attendance to sketch the conversation as it's happening live.

Supper will include such delectables as Slagel Farm pork belly, smoked banana puree and uni, Slagel Farm beef tri-tip over vegetable ash, a Lagunitas tasting, cupcakes from Chicago Cupcake and much, much more. 

"The Dinner Party" is streamed on the Chicago Sun-Times website before going to TiVO, Ch. 19, the Huffington Post, iTunes and YouTube. For tickets, click here.
