While traveling to Napa in 2012 for a wine country tour I stumbled upon what I thought was a great idea. How do i provide the same wine tour experience in an big city setting. While Chicago may not share the Napa Valley landscape (or the great year round weather) one thing Chicago does have is a host of great food and wine venues. That is the focus of “The Crawl”. Think an upscale wine and food crawl for foodies and wine lovers as well as those wanting to learn more about food and wine. Combining that with chartered transportation, giving attendees a full day of visits to popular Chicago restaurants sampling menu items and wine pairings. Not just the “name” locations are visited. We search the neighborhoods for the hidden gems, the ethnic foods that the city is known for and much more. We wanted to “disrupt” the idea of a crawl from being a drunken excursion down Rush street to a more appealing casual afternoon of being driven around on a gourmet food and wine tour.
The Crawl has been successful with events hosted every quarter since March 2013, we see people celebrating birthdays, romantic weekends, or just meeting in town for fun. The next food and wine crawl is Saturday Nov. 8th. It will include a chartered luxury coach tour with 3 Stops, 10 dishes wine pairings and a grad prize drawing for a trip for two to Las Vegas. Last week we held our first Crawl in Indianapolis and in February we will be heading to Napa.
