One ticket can get Chicagoans access to unlimited food, drinks and entertainment by some of Chicago’s most beloved restaurants. That’s right, Eataly’s SeptemberFest is back, and this year it’s focused on the “Best of Chicago.”

The event is scheduled for September 29, running 6 p.m. to midnight. Guests can enjoy dishes from Eataly’s chefs and, a new feature this year, food from a roster of other Chicago institutions, including Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits, Big Star, Billy Sunday, Dove’s Luncheonette, Fat Rice, Honey Butter Fried Chicken, Osteria Langhe, Revolution Brewing, The Violet Hour and Yusho.

Last year was the inaugural SeptemberFest, and tickets sold out in 48 hours, which seems like it may have surprised the organizers given they originally advertised tickets at the door.

The Facebook event was just made public this week, and already has hundreds of people interested, so set a reminder if you want to grab tickets when they go live on September 1.
