It's time to THAW and forget what your parents said about not playing with your food!

The hot ballyhoo is back with food and performance artists, the most appetizing dancers, scrumptious cabaret acts and lip smacking interactive gamers. Get your fill of performance, but leave room for Dutch-Indonesian inspired cuisine from pop-up restaurant The Rice Table , brew by Revolution Brewing (voted best local brewery by Chicago Reader 2013), Michigan/Chicago based Virtue Cider , delicious Cocktails made with Tito's Handmade Vodka, eco-friendly wine by Bonfire Wines and so much more.

Time Out Chicago says "THAW is a multifaceted “hot winter ballyhoo” that defies expectation!"
Glitter Guts calls it one of the "craziest parties of the year."
