Guests came together for two important reasons at Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center last October: to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the 007 James Bond franchise and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The first annual “En Noir: A Casino Royale Masquerade” event was designed to benefit Imerman Angels, a one-onone cancer support community that pairs a cancer fighter, survivor or caregiver with someone who has fought and survived the same type of cancer. Guests dressed in black-tie or masquerade attire and were treated to themed cocktails from a premium bar and chef-driven hors d’oeuvres. The night’s entertainment included casino tables, aerialist performances and singer Erin Boheme, who delivered renditions of Bond’s most memorable movie songs. 

An unusual "glass" makes this drink the hit of any event. 

 

An empowering approach to leadership makes Jill Torke, director of sales and marketing for The Ritz-Carlton, Chicago, a superwoman in the city’s hotel scene.

 

Think creative F&B always has to be expensive? Think Again. We asked a hotel, a restaurant and a conference center to create three menus at three different price points - and they delivered.
