...and that's just the start of it. Wednesday night's Gateway Green poker event at Galleria Marchetti will feature a number of minor Chicago celebrities, including Bears linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer and Kathy Hart of 101.9 FM's "Eric and Kathy" fame. While the opportunity to show a former Bull who's boss should be incentive enough, here's something else: the grand-prize winner of the charity event gets a spot in the 2010 World Series of Poker tournament in Las Vegas.
Sign up as a player ($150) or a spectator ($25), and be sure to arrive by 5:30 p.m. for registration. The tournament beings at 6:30, and there will be other games (roulette, craps, blackjack) plus food, cocktails and more. If you can't pony up the cash, you can at least head to the official after-party at the Bull & Bear.
