We’re still recovering from our eating marathon over the weekend with uber-food dude Steve Dolinsky (ABC7’s Hungry Hound in Chicago), so instead of a post of our own this Tuesday, we’ll refer you to this link, http://tinyurl.com/yc85v2h to see his videos of his various stops all over our humble burg in the course of a manical, two day schedule of restaurant hopping.
Those videos, btw, in all of their shaky-cam glory, were shot by the ultra-amateurish ELV, has he endeavored to assist Steverino in some way beyond just sitting at the table and engaging in the witty, erudite, and irony-laden conversations for which he is known. Suffice it to say that Janusz Kaminski we are not.
And lest you doubt our word on how much ground (and calories) we covered, here was our schedule:
Saturday, March 13
1:30 PM Lunch at Origin India
3:30 PM Wine at Hostile Grape at M Resort
4:00 PM Martini Time w/ Chef Tina Martini at M Resort featured prominently on Top Chef (her show is great…and a must see if you’re in this neck of the woods)

As Steve said: “It was one for the record books.”
And ELV still isn’t hungry.
