Sweet Home Chicago Dinner

Looking for something unique to do for this Valentine’s Day? Or are you looking for a fun night out with friends? Join us for our first-ever Sweet Home Chicago Dinner. The event will feature a four-course dinner and interactive presentation featuring historian and author Leslie Goddard. Join us and learn why Chicago calls itself the Candy Capital of America. Leslie will share the sweet history behind Chicago’s tasty treats, including Frango Mints, Baby Ruth, Lemonheads, and many more! Plus, each participant will be able to visit our Sweet Home Chicago Candy bar and create their own take home bag of Chicago’s most famous candies. 

Leslie Goddard will be available afterwards for a book signing.
