Series Greeted by the Windy City

On October 2, NBC had a premiere for its exciting and hot new series, “Chicago Fire”  The event was appropriately staged at the Chicago History Museum and the honored guests were firemen  and their families .  Dick Wolf, of Law and Order fame and his cast were also present.  We were very privileged to be among the attendees to see the show and then attend the swank after party.

Many dignitaries attended the world premiere including the fire commissioner  and Mayor Rahm Emanuel . The commissioner presented Dick Wolf with a proclamation for the cast and crew from the Chicago Fire Department.  Every one is pleased that the series has already brought revenue into the city as well as providing employment for crew and local actors. Wolf said that he hopes it will be a long and profitable relationship.

The party featured food that was represented by the various neighborhoods in Chicago. There was also a chance to mix and mingle and meet the stars of this great new show.

Some of the Chicago neighborhoods were represented at the party . Here we have mini gyros from Halsted -Greektown.  There was also Chicago style hot dogs , tacos from Pilsen, prime rib and potatoes from the downtown, and Chinese food from Chinatown.

A jazz band entertained the gathering as they mingled and socialized

An open bar was another feature of the evening

Little Italy was also featured with pastas and this yummy cannoli for dessert

On the Red Carpet is the fine cast of the new NBC series. They are all great and so nice

Here we are with Taylor Kinney who plays Kelly Severide on the show. He is also the beau of Lady Gaga . Lucky!!!


And here we are with the lovable David Eigenberg who plays Christopher Hermann.  You may remember him as the love of Miranda’s life on “Sex and the City.”  I got the pleasure of interviewing him and he really is a sweetie.



Here is Eamonn Walker who plays Chief Boden. He is the boss of all the fire men and rescue workers.

Here we are with television legend, Dick Wolf , who created the Law and Order franchise. He hopes that the partnership with the city is a long and profitable one. So do I.
