Bad news for foodies: the Chicago Gourmet festival on Sept. 26 and 27 is already sold out.

Tickets for the annual food and drink tasting in Millennium Park were snapped up faster than ever this year. The popular gourmet burger competition Hamburger Hop is also already sold out.

If you had your heart set on going and missed out, tickets are still available for four separate Chicago Gourmet weekend events. The Taste to Charlie Trotter hosted by Emeril Lagasse, the Late Night Gourmet party at The Underground, the Punch Kings Pigs n' Tiki competitive pig roast and the Rise & Shine Gourmet brunch, run and yoga class all still have ticket availability.

You can buy tickets to the events and find more information at
