In celebration of Diwali, ROOH Chicago, a Progressive Indian restaurant and cocktail bar, is offering an exclusive, ticketed tasting menu on Sunday, Oct. 27. The menu features a four-course meal for $85 per plate, including gratuity and taxes.

Diwali is the New Year and Hindu festival of lights, which is one of the most important Indian celebrations. ROOH Chicago, which opened this past May, wanted to offer a special menu to honor and celebrate this Indian tradition. The restaurant also offers special menus for other holidays and events and is currently planning a unique New Year's Eve menu.

ROOH Chicago also features a variety of event space, including the exclusive ROOH Underground. Located on the lower level of the restaurant, ROOH Underground offers an intimate private dining experience for 10-12 guests. Other spaces include the Jhoomar Dining Room (40 seated, 55 standing), ROOH Lounge (35 seated, 50 standing), and Guldasta Dining Room (40 seated, 50 standing). ROOH Chicago also offers a second floor buyout option for up to 100 guests.

Other events coming up at ROOH Chicago are an UNWINED event with Roger Bissell on Oct. 15 and soon-to-be-announced New Year's Eve programming. 

Toni Roberts, award winning executive pastry chef at theWit Hotel Chicago, is satisfying everyone’s sweet tooth this holiday season with the reintroduction of an exclusive Thanksgiving to go dessert menu. Whether you’re currently embracing everything pumpkin spice or a self-proclaimed chocolate connoisseur, the menu features a little something for everyone.

 

As with most facets of the meetings and events industry, the art of managing an event budget is a true balancing act. And while it’s easy to get wrapped up in the nitty-gritty, Eventbrite revealed a pleasant surprise in its 2018 Pulse Report (which surveyed 1,200 planners), finding that event budgets overall appear to be on the rise. But where exactly are those budget dollars going these days and how can planners best spend to craft memorable moments?

 

According to the Illinois Department of Agriculture, about 1.5 million Illinois workers are employed in the food and fiber system, ranking it as one of the top states in dependency on agriculture. The state’s 72,500 farms utilize 75 percent of Illinois land, including some of the most fertile soil in the world. While nicknamed “The Prairie State,” Illinois is truly a land of plenty and a hub for agritourism—with some of the largest agriculture-focused events (holding the potential for major economic impact) taking place inside its borders.
