  • Best of Bite Nite!

    Why Bite Nite is the best...in their own words...

  • "We feel very strongly that we've got a dining destination here in the  Oak Park / River Forest / Forest Park area. The more we can get not just our locals but people outside the area to come and visit our restaurants, the better off we are. Of course, the [end of January, beginning of February] it's pretty slow in the restaurant business so this is an opportunity for the restaurants to highlight themselves without adding any additional cost."

    Cathy YenExecutive Director at the Oak Park-River Forest Chamber of Commerce  
  • "Bite Nite was a great event for us because we were in front of a demographic who enjoys our product, fine wine!  We were able to share a taste of our most popular wine and introduce guests to our company and home samplings, so they have the opportunity to explore more of our wines by booking their own private sampling down the road."

    - Erin Meier, New Client Development Manager at PRP Wine International

  • "Great event, looking forward to doing it again in!"
