Golden opportunity for a foodie at Chicon

If you're a foodie, you've almost certainly heard of Alinea, the restaurant at which Grant Achatz became a culinary superstar. One of the best meals of my life was my dinner there quite some years ago.

I'm going again on the Thursday of Chicon (and will, of course, report on the dinner here), but due to paranoia I have two spare tickets for a 9:30 p.m. seating on Wednesday, August 29. Alinea handles reservations differently than most restaurants: it sells pre-paid tickets whose cost includes the meal and gratuity. Each ticket entitles you to the tasting menu, which is your only choice. You have to trust Achatz and his team to deliver something great--which I do. (Beverages and wine pairings are an additional cost you pay while there.) The pair of tickets I have cost $531.60. If you'd like to buy them, a process that involves Alinea itself so they can make sure no one is scalping the tickets, let me know via the Contact form on the site. You have to pay for the tickets as soon as you take them.

If I don't have any takers within a week, I'll put them on offer via Alinea's normal mechanisms.

This is a chance to secure a meal that is certain to be amazing.

The first person to ask for them gets them.

Damn, if I could, I would.

Alas, the tickets are gone now.
