Second City Club & A Giveaway

Written by , Posted in Giveaway

If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, it’s likely that you caught a few pictures and details from the Second City Food Wine and Social Club‘s inaugural event Monday! It was just a short month ago that I met and became quick friends with Windy City EpicureanLaura, and Katharine and together with my friend Kit and our chef “C”, the SCFWSC was founded.  It was so incredibly exciting to see our ideas and hard work come to fruition and we hope that Monday night was the first of many fantastic nights of wine, food, and revelry to come! Our next event is already scheduled for December 9th so if you’re interested in being a part of the club and attending future events, head on over to the Join page of our website and submit your information for consideration!

Because we just had to do a little something special to mark a successful first event, we’re giving away a copy of Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking, and Curing by Michael Ruhlman and Brian Polcyn to one of our members! Head on over to and enter now for a chance to win this beautiful hardcover!
