First Bites Bash, One of the Tastiest Chicago Events of the Year Chicago is home to so many amazing restaurants, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of choices for dinner. But you can try 70 of them in one delectable evening at the First Bites Bash at the Field Museum on Thursday, January 24. It's the kick-off event for Chicago Restaurant Week, which takes place January 25 through February 7.   What Happens at Chicago's First Bites Bash?
