This past Friday, Eli’s was honored to be served at two different celebrations in Chicago. One was an event for the Gene Siskel Film Center honoring actor, director and producer Mark Ruffalo. Ruffalo was the recipient of the Siskel Center’s Renaissance Award for his achievements in the film industry. The event was hosted at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago Hotel and Eli’s was happy to give the attendees our new Salted Caramel Pretzel Bars as dessert. Eli’s Cheesecake was also served at the Above the Rails Gala, the opening party for The 606. The 606 is a new trail in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood that has been in development for the past decade. The party was held the night before the public opening of the trail and brought together Chicago community leaders to celebrate the innovative new trail. Eli’s was thrilled to be served at both festivities and we look forward to all the rest of our summer events.
