I'm certain that some of the people posting to this board are members of Slow Food, U.S.A. and are already aware of several upcoming events put on by the Chicago Convivium. For those who are not, there are three events in the next few months, which might be of interest to Chowhounds. First, SuperWhites is a tasting of 100 white wines from the Friuli Venezia Giulia regions in Italy to be held at the Newberry Library. Second, on May 4, Barbeque and Blues with the author of Barbeque: An American Art at Smoke Daddy. Finally, Slow Food is holding its annual Feast of the Senses on June 7. Many of you may have attended this event in the past. Several art galleries in River North open their doors for on a Saturday evening. Restaurants and food producers pair with wine/beer/spirit producers at each of the locales. It's a wandering party and a chance to see interesting art and taste various foods from within the city and without. Last year, it was a weekend of events in light of the presence of Alice Waters who is the leader of the Berkeley convivium, which began with a (fairly mediocre) dinner at Thyme. If anyone is interested in learning more about these events, you can either go to the Slow Food website or contact me at the e-mail listed above.
