Bite Nite Deux is a Bite to Fight Lou Gehrig's Disease

Bite Nite Deux is the ALS Association Greater Chicago Chapter’s second annual event featuring superior dining, signature drinks and fine art.

Ten of Chicago’s top chefs come together to offer outstanding cuisine at tasting stations. Tito’s Vodka has created a signature drink called The Sunflower Sipper in a nod to the ALS National Symbol — the sunflower.

The event is hosted by Kim and David DeJesus (of the Chicago Cubs) and Master Artist Jesus Salguiero. It includes a silent auction of artwork donated by artists from around the world. Music is provided by DJ Opio and rat pack crooner, Michael Hutchins, who has lost several family members to ALS.

Bite Nite Deux will be held on Monday, October 21st, from 6:30-10:30 pm at Open Secret Studios. 401 N. Racine, in Chicago's River West neighborhood. Tickets are $75.00 per person or four for $200.00. Cost includes free on-site parking in a gated private lot at the venue.

All proceeds from Bite Nite Deux will support free home visits, a free equipment lending program, free clinic services at University of Illinois and University of Chicago clinics, and advocacy efforts in Washington D.C.
