Don't Miss Out on this virtual international Dine Around dinner & conversation experience.  IWF Chicago and Let's Talk Womxn have collaborated to host a special evening on April 29th.   The virtual passport dining experience is a four-course gourmet takeout dinner traversing four global cuisines - Frontera Grill (Mexican), Parachute (Korean), Saigon Sisters (Vietnamese), and Vermilion (Indian-Latin) - by incredible women-led restaurants.  This meal for two adults, subsidized by IWF Chicago, is just $55.00 (plus tax/service fee).  It is paired with a Zoom with our intrepid Chicago Let's talk Womxn restaurateurs who have launched this action-led collboration around the country (12 cities and over 350 women restauranteurs), as featured on the Today ShowGood Morning America, and TimeOut Women of the Year.

The takeout meal for two will be available for pick up & delivery at Vermilion in River North and at Parachute in the Avondale area.  IN ADDITION, IWF is arranging for pick up for our suburban members at Prairie Grass Cafe in Northbrook from 3-5pm. For the Northbrook option, please order the Vermilion Pick Up for your dinner on Tock and inform Michelle Fowler you will pick up your dinner from PGC.

The dining event will kick off with dinner and a Zoom conversation on the Let's Talk Womxn collaboration with leading women restaurateurs Deann Bayless, Beverly Kim, Mary Aregoni, and Rohini Dey. Breakout rooms will then be utilized for members to host small 'dinner party' discussions.
