The Women’s Board of the Joffrey Ballet will marry two holiday traditions—time spent with family and The Nutcracker—at the 14th annual Nutcracker Family Dinner (December 10). Following a family-friendly cocktail, punch and entertainment hour, a holiday dinner of roast chicken, turkey, stuffing and cranberries will be served at the Palmer House Hotel. Guests will have the option of a pre-dinner matinee (2 PM) or after-dinner evening show (7 PM) at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University. A trolley will transport guests between the hotel and the theatre. 312-386-8921; nutdinner [at] joffrey [dot] org
