I am a member of the Everywhere Society and Everywhere has provided me with compensation for this post. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
Macy’s and I will be in another whirlwind date of sorts next Saturday, and this time, I’ll actually be able to EAT in their Walnut Room. Well, in the Walnut Room of what will always be Marshall Field’s to those of us who live in the windy city. Seriously. Sears Tower, Marshall Field’s, Comiskey Park – we have lines that we don’t like to cross too often.
Of course, this time around, I’ll still be representing media for the Culinary Council, and I’ll FINALLY be able to meet Cat Cora while schmoozing with the likes of Tom Douglas, Johnny Iuzzini, and Takashi Yagihashi. They will be the featured chef guests in celebration of 125 years of food service. Did you know that this location is the FIRST location to open up tea rooms, because a wonderful milliner realized that she could keep customers loyal if she served them lunch while they were waiting on their hats to be made. I’m telling you, necessity is the mother of invention.
Not only will we be offered a great array of food, plus an homage to the pot pie and Idaho potato (which was first introduced at this State Street location as well,) all military veterans will be honored in the Got Your 6 campaign. For those of you that aren’t aware, Got Your 6 is just a neat way that we military personnel say “got your back.” Because we love numbers, a lot.
Wanna come with me? Check out the information below, and purchase your ticket to come and rub elbows! You won’t regret it, promise! Not only will you be able to meet FOUR of the Culinary Council chefs, I hear that there will be great food, and a new signature drink for you to try!
