Fried Chicken & Champagne

Eat and drink to support Chicago's school kids


Can you think of a better excuse to eat fried chicken and drink champagne than to raise money for Chicago’s school kids? We can’t either. That’s why you’ll want to get tickets to the Fried Chicken & Champagne for Pilot Light event taking place at Honey Butter Fried Chicken on Aug. 8. HBFC co-owners Josh Kulp and Christine Cikowski partnered up with master sommelier Alpana Singh (Boarding House, Seven Lions) and recruited a slam-dunk crew of chefs like Matthias Merges (Yusho, A10), Jason Hammel (Lula Café), Perry Hendrix (Avec) and John Manion (La Sirena Clandestina, El Che Bar) to each craft delicious fried chicken. Singh will curate the bubbly, you’ll eat and drink to your heart’s content and the kids who get helped through Pilot Light, a program that teaches kids common-core lessons on food basics, win! Tickets are $85 and we have no doubt you’ll get your share of chicken and champers.
