This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Mike and Penny visit Twain, the new Logan Square gourmet homage to Midwestern cuisine from Tim and Rebekah Graham. In this podcast they parse the latest design trend of undergarments hanging from restaurant ceilings, the wisdom of glamming up ants on a log, and the glory of bone marrow. Mike explains what a “Kid Rock” shandy is and both Penny and Mike brave shrimp-spiked liquor. Penny claims she’s old and persnickety, but Mike is also a straight curmudgeon in this review too.
