This summer, The Infatuation’s food festival, dubbed EEEEEATSCON, is making its first-ever appearance in the Windy City.
While The Infatuation is perhaps best known as a food discovery platform, it also offers several in-person events annually, and for Chicagoans (and visitors), its signature food celebration will take center stage at The Salt Shed on Saturday, August 19, 2023, and Sunday, August 20, 2023.
Here’s what you should know about the event — and how select Chase cardholders stand to benefit.
Making its debut in 2017, The Infatuation‘s annual food festival not only includes eats from a variety of standout restaurants but also live performances throughout the day, including panels from thought leaders and industry pioneers.
The Los Angeles iteration in May saw over 20 fan-favorite restaurants from L.A. (and around the country) and a conversation with writer and comedian Ali Wong.
To date, only food lovers in Los Angeles and New York have seen this event; this will be the first EEEEEATSCON Chicago. General ticket sales begin on June 29, 2023, at 10 a.m. CT. Tickets are $25 each, plus applicable tax and fees (note that a ticket doesn’t include food or beverages, which are sold separately).
The Chicago lineup includes the following restaurants: 3 Little Pigs, 7th Street Burger (New York City), Dark Matter Coffee, Dove’s Luncheonette, Dr. Bird’s, Khmai Cambodian, Micklethwait Craft Meats (Austin, TX), Obelix, P Graziano, Professor Pizza, The Rainbow Cone, Taco Mafia (Austin, TX), and Taqueria Chingon.
On the entertainment front, expect conversations with multi-platinum, award-winning artist Saweetie and co-hosts of the “Girls Gotta Eat” podcast Rayna Greenberg and Ashley Hesseltine.
One thing we should mention: Chase bought The Infatuation in 2021. In a push to be a one-stop shop platform for all things travel, dining, and lifestyle, cardholders can benefit. If you have a select Chase card and want to attend with a few extra freebies (and discounts), you’re in luck.
Presale single-day tickets are available through June 28, 2023, exclusively for Chase Sapphire cardholders. Those with the Chase Sapphire Reserve® and Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card receive 50% off individual ticket purchases, plus applicable tax and fees.
Presale tickets for Chase Sapphire cardmembers also grant ticket holders access to EEEEEATSCON Chicago at 11 a.m. CT, 1 hour earlier than general admission tickets.
In addition, Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders get special access to the Sapphire Reserve lounge. This unique in-event experience will offer cardholder-only perks, including a complimentary beverage, entertainment, and more.
Chase and The Infatuation are back with the latest iteration of its well-regarded food festival, this time with a Chicago edition. Chase Sapphire cardholders can get up to 50% off entry during the presale, and Chase Sapphire Reserve cardholders even get access to an exclusive lounge on-site.
