OTL #500: Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round, The Secret History of Evening’s Breezes, Bloody Mary Fest preview
Mike Stephen chats with writer and foodie Ron Faiola about a unique aspect of Midwest culture as detailed in his Wisconsin Supper Clubs: Another Round book, checks in with Plastic Crimewave (aka Steve Krakow) about obscure garage rockers Evening’s Breezes for this week’s edition of The Secret History of Chicago Music, and welcomes Culture_Content guru Brian Ferber to the studio to preview the Bloody Mary Fest taking place at the Logan Square Auditorium and to explain why the Bloody Mary is a perfect way to bring people together. Meanwhile, we play a clip of celebrity chef Alton Brown conducting an Italian Beef blind taste test… and we celebrate the 500th episode of Outside the Loop RADIO! This week’s local music is provided by Birds of Chicago.
