Black Lives Matter. The fact that it needs to be said shows how very far we still have to go as a country. We hear you and we are with you.
Happy Thanksgiving, CHIRP turkeys! Every year, I’ve done a special edition of my show on Thanksgiving weekend, featuring two hours of songs referencing food in some way. I thought this year, it would be fun to share a few of my favorite songs about food, so you can listen while you chop carrots, roast the turkey and bake pies - or just make a trip to the liquor store for the wine, if that’s more your speed. Happy feasting!
First off, you have to go shopping before you can cook, or eat, so start your musical feast with “The Market of Farms” by Artichoke.
Chicago is a city that loves its food, music, and comedy. What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day weekend than with all three. So we’re calling all you meat-lovers out there to join us at Chop Shop for some good eats and drinks. Come out this Saturday, February 15th, as Red Meat Market and Chop Shop present “Eat Your Heart Out”. This a night dedicated to love and to fill all of your carnivorous desires.
The butchers include the Chop Shop’s Mike Trotta and Nico Rizzi supporting owner, Mario Minelli, as well as Red Meat Market’s Ben Harrison and Nathan Bosco. Local comedians will take the stage to bring you laughs during the butcher presentation, which will include samples of locally pasteurized pig, lamb, goat, and cow. But don’t forget your dancing shoes, as you get down with some of Chicago’s finest musical acts. Your ears and body will be rejoicing from the sweet sounds of White Mystery, Blasted Diplomats, and SoftSpeaker.
Tickets for “Eat Your Heart Out” are $50, which include 2 complimentary drinks and samples. The event will take place Saturday, February 15th, 2014 at 6pm. Chop Shop is located at 2033 W. North Ave in Chicago. For the love of meat, don’t let the cold keep you in!
