Please make you dinner selections in advance. For those who have already paid for dinner, partial refunds will be made when you make your selection for The Chicago Feast. Please understand that this year we are pricing the dinners at the net price to the Show for every dinner served, so as to make this dinner affordable for all. Also, we have eliminated appetizers and bottles of wine on the table, both of which previously increased the price to all, but were not enjoyed by all.
