Gourmet hors d’oeuvres will be provided by Under the Table and will feature chef Marcus Townsend. Guests will enjoy specialty beers, wines and cocktails.

ESAC is a coalition of young professionals whose mission is to raise awareness about Y.O.U. throughout the Evanston and Chicago communities. Valerie Kahan, event chair for ESAC, said that the group hopes to engage hundreds and provide an unforgettable experience.
“In the past we’ve done wine tastings but this year we’re bumping it up and making it bigger,” Kahan said. “We hope to reach a whole new group of people and spread the word about Y.O.U. a bit further. With this event we hope to leave people with a night they’ll be talking about for a while.”
