Macy's set to light holiday tree this Saturday (State Street-Chicago)

Tonight I had a sampling of some new menu items,holiday cocktails and a sneak peak of the holiday tree in the Walnut Room @ Macy's State Street store in Chicago. I still love the pot pie and it's still a hugely popular menu item.A fab new item was the Butternut squash tortellini with Gorgonzola cheese,toasted nuts and Craisins; absolutely delicious! The tree will be lit at noon on Saturday and Ryan Seacrest will be there to help 'pull the switch and Former "American Idol" winner Lee DeWyze is scheduled to sing!
