The holiday season itself is a reason to look forward to the winter months, and our exciting schedule of events this December is sure to encourage you to brave the freezing temperatures to head over to City Winery to enjoy great food, wine, music, and company!
Fear No Art’s monthly Dinner Party kicks off December on 12/1 featuring Author Rebecca Skloot, Briston & Balena Chef Chris Pandel, and more as guests. Aside from great conversation and company, a variety of food & drink tastings are included! Other notable wine & food events are our Bordeaux Around the World With Pasternak wine dinner and our sparkling wine class!
Several holiday shows are on the line up during the month as well. Suzy Bogguss performs “A Swingin’ Little Christmas Show”, The Blind Boys of Alabama put their own spin Christmas, and Michael McDermott has two special nights of his Mischief & Mistletoe Christmas Show. Blues queen Shemekia Copeland is also performing two shows on New Years Eve! For those who don’t celebrate Christmas, the Jewmongous comedy concert would make for an entertaining night out this season!
While many concerts are sold out, such as three nights with Los Lobos and another four nights with Poi Dog Pondering, there are plenty of other acts worth checking out! They include, but are not limited to an acoustic evening with Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes, impressive Piano-drum-bass jazz trio The Bad Plus, and an all-star evening with The Chicago Soul Revue, a 10-piece 60s & 70s soul band.
