Pour for Arts4Kids Foundation benefit at Bites Asian Tapas in Lake View February 26

An evening of great food and wine is on tap at “Pour” in support of  the Arts4Kids Foundation, 6 p.m., Wednesday February 26 at Bites Asian Tapas, 3313 North Clark, (773) 270-5972.

 “Pour” is a popular fundraiser that brings together wine tastings and social awareness. The event features wine and food pairings, as well as special tasting experiences, all in support of a non-profit organization.

Pour events have raised funds for several local and national charities.  Arts4Kids aims to introduce children to a variety of arts, hence fostering intellectual and emotional growth as well as enabling to spear through the cultural bearers. Its founder Leonard Mogul has help sponsor cultural trips for underprivileged kids across Chicago.

“It's important that these children are exposed to a different atmosphere and understand there is so much more to life than the small piece of the world they see,” said Mogul in a recent interview.

Bites Asian Tapas serves dishes from countries all over Asia, from Japan to Thailand to China and

Vietnam.  The tapas are perfect for sharing. The restaurant’s crafted cocktails are Asian-infused and carefully created to complement the dishes. Bites, which opened this past fall in Lake View, is co-owned by chef Marita Tantivirasut and entrepreneur Asana Nakornchai.

Attendees of Pour will receive a glass of wine from the Love Cork Screw brand and one unique menu item from Bites.  Also one attendee will win a prize drawing for a trip for two to Las Vegas.

Tickets to Pour are $25 in advance for tickets and for more information visit
