While we bloggers can seem like slightly amorphous beings, out there in the ether, we’re people too. We recycle just like you, we forget to clean our bathtubs just like you, we even eat, and we eat often. Some of us are better at choosing exciting places for meals then others, and none more so then Evan, the mastermind behind the incredible City That Breeds. If you aren’t familiar with Evan, then here are some important fun facts:
-He knows, I’m pretty sure, every single bar or dive south of North Ave, and possibly a handful above it.
-He pointed me to the only gluten-free pizza I’ve been able to find in this city (Brick Oven Pizza, if you’re curious.)
-Every year, he organizes the wildly successful Cosby Sweater Bar Crawl to raise money for BARCS.
-He runs one of the funniest blogs in the city, with an equally wonderful Twitter feed.
Whenever I have a basic question about anything in this city, Evan’s one of my go-tos. ‘Tis the season for holiday visitors, and I knew he’d have wonderful suggestions for where to take anyone from your folks to your old college roommate.
Home cook assessment: Do you consider Durkee onions and Campbell’s mushroom soup legitimate ingredients or cheating?
Well considering one of them is the crucial ingredient in green bean casserole and the other is a crucial ingredient in this awesome chicken bake that I like to make (don’t judge me) I consider them to be legit ingredients. Look if you want to make freeze dried onion flavored strings on your own time, more power to you but I’m a busy man!
