Actor George Wendt, Color Purple’s Felicia Fields, Chef ZimmermannAugust 4th, 2014
Did you miss the July 10th Dinner Party at Taste of Chicago in Grant Park? If so, watch the full show or highlights below. Guests were famed actor George Wendt, Tony Award Nominee Felicia Fields, Windy City Live Social Media Host, Ji Suk Yi and Michelin Star Chef Andrew Zimmerman.
“The Dinner Party To Go” is a podcast version of The Dinner Party (http://thedinnerparty.tv) in which I invite one celeb to meet me at a chef’s restaurant and over food and a drink the 3 of us discuss funny stories, artist projects, hot topics and the food. In short, it is like the radio show, “Fresh Air”, but over food.
On my first “The Dinner Party To Go” podcast, famed actor George Wendt (NORM! from Cheers and one of the Superfans on Saturday Night Live) belly up to the bar at Trenchermen Bar where we sit down with life-long Chicagoan, Exec. Chef Pat Sheerin and discuss our food (Barrata, Octopus Posole, Pickled Tots, Ribs and beer!), Chicago Hot Dogs, favorite junk foods, cooking with peppers, George’s early years at Second City and how he flunked out of Notre Dame! Enjoy!
( PS. The last Dinner Party was SOLD OUT. Don’t let that happen again! The next Dinner Party at City Winery. is September 23 with Chef Bruce Sherman of North Pond, Celebrity Columnist Bill Zwecker and famed talk show host, JERRY SPRINGER! Host Elysabeth Alfano will announce the final guest soon. The Opening Act is Q Brothers. Tix available soon! Mark your calendars!)
