Star chefs back for Green City Market BBQ fest
So, before you get all burned out on barbecue, I wanted to leave you with a massive 'Q party taking place in a couple of weeks.
The Chefs' Summer BBQ Festival happens again at Green City Market, and more than 50 of the city's top culinary kings and queens will participate—of course using Green Market foods.
Big names include "Top Chef" winner Stephanie Izard, Heather Terhune (Atwood Cafe), Kendal Duque (Sepia), Rick Bayless (Frontera Grill/Topolobampo), Christophe David (NoMI), Paul Fehribach (Big Jones), Paul Kahan (Blackbird) and Koren Grieveson (Avec).
You'll get to chug Goose Island beer and root beer, as well as sip sangria and wines from August Hill Winery as you nod your head to live music. All contributions support Green City Market. 6-8pm Thursday, July 17. $50 in advance; $60 at gate; an additional $100 gets you a reserved table, linens and 10 chairs.
Purchase tickets here soon because last year more than 1,000 folks turned out!
