Education & Networking - ILEA Chicago kicks-off 2018!

ILEA Members are invited to come on out for a private, members only food & beverage experience provided by the Chicago Food Planet.  Six different restaurants will combine the delicious, thirst-quenching and informative elements of a neighborhood food experience with the fun, social elements of a food festival in one private, intimate setting. 

Take in a newly renovated venue Bridge410 where you can enjoy some bocce ball (provided by American Bocce Ball) between bites and hear from our speaker, Ricky Hirsch from Think Jerky.  Ricky will share his story on his entrepreneurship, his journey, steps he took to make his product successful.  His product is now in major retailers.
