Head towards the red flame for good food…

This sunday boyfriend & I headed to Red Light to participate in the 3 Sisters Event… it was a delicious brunch with a lot of chefs from some amazing restaurants around Chicago.

Owned by the talented Jackie Shen… who was absolutely ADORABLE in person :]

As soon as we signed in, we headed straight to the Primehouse table.  I already found out ahead of time thru twitter and me and the boy were uuber excited to try some Bloody Mary’s and some eggs & bacon…

Bloody Mary… it was cooked tomatoes.. soooo thick and spicy and delicious!!! And the deviled egg… with bacon… OMG.. THICK JUICY BACON.. I don’t even like deviled eggs and I LOOOOOOOVED these!!!

Silent Auction

It was such an enjoyable and tasty time.. I loved how there was a lot less people than the Chef’s BBQ.. the food was a lot more refined since they didn’t have a gazillion ppl eating there… and it was more laid back and relaxing.. we didn’t feel like we had to gorge ourselves again to the point of exploding just to try one of everything…. we got to talk with the chefs… and just have a great time :] Even enjoyed a bellini sometime after the food.. maybe another tamale.. and some more ice cream ;]
