“Look who came for dinner,” Winfrey wrote, adding, “Our first time meeting,” plus the hashtag #sweethomechicago.
Lightfoot said at an unrelated news conference Tuesday that the dinner took place last Thursday. Lightfoot was in California Thursday and Friday, attending a fundraiser held by former Sen. Barbara Boxer in Palm Springs.
“She’s a remarkable person as you know,” Lightfoot said of Oprah.
“Our folks had reached out and she was very generous in inviting my wife and I to dine with her at her house, and it was great,” she added.
“She’s a tremendous person, clearly is up to date on things that are happening in Chicago,” Lightfoot said, adding that Winfrey “loves this city so I was grateful for the opportunity to meet with her.”
