What are you doing for lunch today?!
HOT-BLOODED master chef Gordon Ramsay makes his way to Macy's on State (111 N. State St., lower level) this afternoon to push his new cookbook, Gordon Ramsay's Fast Food (Key Porter). The event starts at 1pm in Macy's culinary kitchen, but if you miss that you can always catch him at 8pm tonight on his emotionally charged "Hell's Kitchen" on FOX-TV, which also stars local chef Jennifer Gavin.
If you need more chef action, head to the Chicago History Museum (1601 N. Clark St., 312-642-4600) for a Chef Showcase, featuring some local culinary kings and queens. Gale Gand of Tru, Michael Kornick of MK, Bruce Sherman of North Pond and Carol Wallack of Sola will serve up the 411 on Chicago's impact on food. 7pm. $10.
Can't wait for "Sex and the City: The Movie" to hit the big screen on May 30?! Head to Lincoln Park's Tsuki Lounge (1441-45 W. Fullerton Ave., 773-883-8722) with your girls and do your own Ladies Night. The event includes complimentary manis and massages, plus $5 Skyy cocktail specials. And if you get there early, you get a goody bag stuffed with the good stuff. 7-10pm. RSVP required at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cellar Notes continues its weekly series at NoMI (Park Hyatt Chicago, 7th Floor, 800 N. Michigan Ave., 312-239-4030) with a tasting of stellar Austrian producers. NoMI Sommelier Fernando Beteta leads this interactive seminar that includes up to 10 selections paired with appetizers. 5:30-7:30pm. $30.
