World's First Live Auction Twitter NOW in progress!

Get dinner cooked at home by Perennial's Ryan Poli before it's going once, going twice, gone!

This is what I looooove about the Internets. People come up with some of the most offbeat events that you cannot pull off in print.

Right at this moment, the world's first ever live auction twitter is going down to benefit Swan Farm Creek's George Rasmussen, who lost his only truck in a recent fire.

Fifteen of Chicago's most celebrated chefs are coming to his aid by auctioning off their talents to come cook at your home. Just some of the chefs include the likes of Mark Mendez (Carnivale), Ryan Poli (Perennial), Bill Kim (Urban Belly), Dirk Flanigan (The Gage), Mindy Segal (Hot Chocolate) and Stephanie Izard (The Drunken Goat).

To participate, all you have to do is sign up here; all proceeds go to Swan Creek to get them back in action.

The auction ends at 9pm May 28.

UPDATE: Vie chef/owner Paul Virant's going for $1,500, Cary Taylor (Chaise Lounge) $1,000, Giuseppe Tentori (Boka) is up for $1,000 and Stephanie Izard's bid is up to $700!
