Watch Me Babble On About Pizza and Tacos at Between Bites
Need an excuse to break the cabin fever and head out into the freezing cold? On Monday, January 27th at 6:30 p.m., The Dawson is hosting Between Bites, a storytelling series all about food. And guess who is one of the lucky readers? Me! (Okay, that was kind of obvious.) Anyway, the theme is Hot/Cold, which is kind of intentionally vague, so I'm going to use the the time to talk about the foods that matter most to me—basically pizza and tacos. I could talk for hours, but I'm going to try and get this thing down to a manageable 10 minutes. Wish me luck.
And if hearing me drone on about my favorite foods doesn't do it for you, know that I am just one of the readers, and that you'll also get the chance to hear from David Hammond (LTHForum, Chicago Sun-Times), Chris LaMorte (UrbanDaddy Chicago), Amalie Drury (PureWow Chicago), Liz Grossman (Plate Magazine), and Kate Bernot (RedEye, and former SE Chicago contributor). That's quite a lineup.
Tickets are $25 and you can purchase them here. The price includes appetizers and cocktails by Thatcher's Organic Artisan Spirits and Candid Wines (there's also a cash bar, if you want your own thing). Plus, proceeds will go to a Kendall College scholarship set up in honor of the late Jason Cevallos, a bartender who used to work at The Dawson.
In case you missed any of the details, below are the essentials. Hope to see you there!
