Dîner en Blanc (DeB) Chicago is excited to bring you Picnic Basket & Wine selections expertly created by Limelight Catering. Like the Hosts of DeB Chicago, Limelight simply loves food. They share in our belief that food has the “power to connect people, revitalize spirits, nourish souls and inspire ideas.”

Limelight embraces a farm to table approach, using local, fresh and sustainable foods in all of the offerings for this year’s DeB Chicago, including Jujube Heirloom Tomatoes specially grown just for them.

This year’s selections will be served in re-usable wire baskets and will include recyclable or compostable food containers. We ask all attendees to please respect the environment and recycle their containers after the event.

I purchased a bottle of Cabernet but do not seem to have a receipt for it. Is there a place on line that I can look for it?
Roger H.
Hi Christine,

We can confirm you have purchased 1 Classique picnic basket and 1 bottle of the Sean Minor Cabernet. You should have received 2 receipts, so check your PayPal account again.

A demain!

Also tried in Google Chrome - no luck.

Hi Andrew,

Everything shows that it's still working on our end, but we are getting a lot of orders all at once so the server may be overloaded. Try clearing your history and cache, shutting down your browser and trying over again.

Let us know if that works, please!

I can't get any of the catering links to activate to place an order. I believe the deadline is tomorrow (8/17). Tried in both Firefox and Safari, no luck.

Any suggestions?

Anyone having an issue placing a food and wine order? I get a "sold out" message.
