How to Incorporate a Chicago Experience into your Event

August 22, 2018 | Catering, Paramount Events Inspiration

Nothing beats summer in Chicago — we love watching the city come alive, and seeing all the beautiful sites to explore when the temperatures soar! 


Treating guests to a traditional “Chicago experience” can be a great way to have some fun at your summer event and show off what makes this city so amazing. A taste of Chicago can come from a build-your-own “Chicago-style” hot dog station. Whether you’re a Cubs or a Sox fan, we can all agree that there’s nothing better than a hot dog (with no ketchup!) at the ball park.



One of the greatest things about Chicago is its plethora of vibrant neighborhoods and diversity of delicious foods. Incorporate a fun feel to your event by including some Mexican flair with a build-your-own plantain chip nacho station, or serve Mexican fruit cups with guava and papaya. Other creative ideas can include an eloté bar, or plating food on sizzling skillets.



No matter the culture, get out in the city and explore this summer! Keep an eye on fresh ideas in different neighborhoods and look to incorporate them in your next event.
