More Rick Bayless news:

We're warning you now that if you're not crazy about big crowds, you'd better stay far away from that little park on Rush Street at Bellevue and Cedar next week.

That's because Bayless's setting up shop midnight-2am Dec. 10-12 for the first-ever celebrity chef-helmed Ketel One Canteen, which will be giving out free food to anyone who finds out about it.

Considering that Bayless's Xoco is all about "Mexican street food" this totally makes sense, and the stuff you'll get sounds absolutely amazing.

Epicurious snagged the menu:

Pork Tinga Tacos - Shredded pork, guacamole and queso fresco cheese served in a soft taco

Roasted Poblano and Potato Tacos - Roasted poblano peppers, Yukon gold potatoes and roasted tomatillo salsa served in a soft taco

Black Bean and Chorizo Tortas - Chorizo sausage, black beans, avocado and salsa served on a crusty roll

Black Bean, Caramelized Onions and Beef Tortas - Black beans, caramelized onions, shredded beef and queso fresco cheese served on a crusty roll

In addition to free food, Ketel One will be offering free rides home (to promote responsible drinking over the holidays).

We're always down for that . . .

UPDATE: Bayless's menu is on tap, but he will not be there. Oh well!
