Important information regarding the Chef's BBQ


TICKETS: "Hard Tickets" for each individual are REQUIRED for entry to the BBQ.  Please make sure to bring your ticket with you!  If you ordered tickets online, but did not receive your tickets via mail through Brown Paper Tickets, tickets are being held at the VIP/Media Check-in booth.  Please pick-up your tickets here.  After you have your tickets, you will be instructed to enter the BBQ via the General Admission entrance.

PARKING: Please note that the parking lot/garage on North and Stockton will be CLOSED for this event.  Parking is available at the Lincoln Park Zoo (off of Fullerton), Lincoln Park Conservatory (off of Stockton) or at Piper's Alley (off of North).
