Lisa and Rob LaLonde will serve authentic Mexican food at their home. Just a few blocks away, Chris Ryan will welcome guests to a taste of Croatia. Sweets and savories inspired by the traditions of the American West will be featured at Mary Gail and Ralph Blasier’s Lake Shore Drive home. Guests will travel to all three sites over the course of the evening.

At the conclusion of the event, stamped and signed passports will be collected for a drawing for three internationally themed baskets.
