A completely new and different kind of talk show: host Elysabeth Alfano of Fear No ART invites 3 different creatives (artists, inventors or entrepreneurs, etc.) to a dinner created by a different celebrity chef at the Mayne Stage the last Monday of every month. Conversation runs from food, to the arts, to current events, etc. THE DINNER PARTY is filmed live in front of an audience and streaming live on the internet, so that viewers can tweet in questions. The live audience stays for sample size tastings of what the chef has prepared when the 1 hour long filming/show is over. Food, alcohol and conversation continue.
This month features Actress and Comedienne Nora Dunn ( Saturday Night Live), Fashion Designer Peach Carr ( Project Runway), Chicago Human Rhythm Project Artistic Director Lane Alexander and Restaurant Owner: Paul Kahan of Publican Quality Meats.
Opening Act: BAM ( Chicago Human Rhythm Project Ensemble)
Brewery Ommegang beer sampling will be paired with Paul Kahan’s food samplings and Vosges Chocolate samplings at this interactive and multi-sensory event.
