    Teams Get Chopped!

Teams Get Chopped!

Okay, we didn’t all get chopped, just one team, but,  a fun little known fact about the sales team and warehouse team at Jewell Events Catering…we can all cook just as well as our chefs!! We decided to engage in a little ‘friendly’ competition ala a Chopped-style cook-off. If you aren’t familiar, that means each team received a basket full of mystery ingredients including some items you would never think to pair together. Each team then had full access to our kitchen and additional ingredients to complete their dish, which needed to be presented to judges in 30 minutes.

As the holiday season approaches, many Chicagoans will begin looking for opportunities to get involved in their communities.

At Jewell Events Catering we value the enormous impact that volunteering has on one’s self and community and would like to share some opportunities for volunteerism and ways that you can get involved.

Volunteers serve an invaluable role in our communities, they deliver critical services such as fighting fires, responding to emergencies, delivering meals to homebound seniors, manning phone lines at domestic abuse centers, running after school and summer programs for children, organizing shelters and food banks, and helping at local church groups.

Volunteers help to keep our neighborhoods, streets, parks, rivers, green spaces and water clean and safe for everyone.
Volunteers build houses and schools, dig wells and repair vital infrastructure.

Volunteerism fosters relationship building and solidarity, it allows you to build a stronger community by engaging both

Venue Spotlight: The Rookery

Jewell Events Catering is proud to cater inside some of the most breathtaking venues in Chicago! This month we are featuring The Rookery Building, which is located in the heart of downtown Chicago’s financial district. The building is an architectural masterpiece built in 1888 by architects Daniel Burnham and John Root. Today, The Rookery is one of the greatest surviving examples of Chicago’s early skyscrapers.

While much of Chicago’s 19th-century architecture has been lost to demolition and redevelopment, The Rookery has been preserved through a series of well-executed renovations. Most notably, Frank Lloyd Wright’s elaborate designs to the wrought iron finishes with white carved Carrara marble surfaces. The architectural detailing complements the amazing light court and oriel staircase.

This space is truly unique and is the perfect venue for intimate weddings and corporate events. Connect with our event specialists for more detailed information on rental rates and available dates.
