Have an American Express card and over $5,400 to blow? Bid now for what’s being described as a “A Foodie’s Fantasy in the Windy City.” Usually these weekend specials are overblown claptrap, but honestly this one is kind of a ridiculous. The lucky ticket will nab you and your (very) lucky guest three nights in an executive suite at the Peninsula Hotel plus meals at Alinea, Frontera Grill, and Avenues. The Alinea stop also involves a behind the scenes look at the kitchen, a “meet and greet” with Mr. Grant Achatz, an afternoon wine tasting with the head sommelier Craig Sindelar, and a case of wine. Sure, you get to sail in a yacht and attend other shows, but that’s where our fantasy stops. Act now, bidding ends tonight at 10 p.m. [@gachatz]
