All registered guests will be pre-screened by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and will be required to show a valid, government issued, photo ID at the event check-in and at the passenger checkpoint. Guests will go through the same security screening process as passengers do prior to entering the secure side of the terminal.
Ticket to Taste will kick off the CDA’s award-winning Airport Restaurant Week, which runs from January 27 through February 9. It coincides with Chicago Restaurant Week.
