Arriving early to the conference? Join us for this Saturday evening walking and tasting tour.
While the date of the World’s Fair dictates much of the tour's content, you won’t visit the site of the fair. Instead, we focus on the downtown area to show you what visitors to the World’s fair would have seen when they explored this part of the city after spending a day at the event. In 1893, not only were new buildings being developed to coincide with the Exposition, but many different types of food were being dreamed up as well. From meals to desserts, people from all over the country got to try the tasty, and now iconic, Chicago treats. The classic Chicago hot dog, Cracker Jacks, and Wrigley Spearmint gum -- these were all introduced to fairgoers for the first time. Take a culinary journey back through time as you gear up for the AIC Annual meeting. Cost - $29
