My oh my, would you look at that?

I realized I haven't been posting as frequently as I would like and I'm just bursting with news to share with everyone.  I've been super busy with work, doctor appointments, and life in general.  That's why I've been posting daily over on my Gluten Free Betsy Facebook page.  If you haven't "liked" me yet, get on over there and check it out!  I've decided that the 500th "liker" will get a big-bad Gluten Free Betsy goodie bag of a bunch of products and other fun gluten free stuff.  Tell your friends...

Here are some of the highlights of what's been going on in the gluten free world...

For all my Chicago GF peeps!  

Mity Nice is throwing a Gluten Free Wine dinner tomorrow!  Mity Nice has revamped not only the restaurant's interior, but also the menu.  They will be hosting a 4-course gluten free wine dinner with Master Sommelier Alpana Singh, you know, from Check Please!  “Gluten-free rock star” Executive Chef Larry Donahue presents a menu of your favorite modern comfort gluten-free dishes paired with select wines.

University of Chicago Celiac Center Spring Benefit

It's almost time for the University of Chicago's Celiac Center's Spring Benefit. On Friday, May 6 at the Swissôtel, over 30 chefs and bakeries will be sampling their gluten free dishes to attendees.   I went last year and it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!  In addition to the of the wonderful gourmet food, there are silent and live auctions.  I definitely recommend purchasing tickets to support the UC Celiac Center.
