I just listened (tune in around 40:50 here), and am amazed anew regarding the enormous response to this little essay.
Here’s the roll-call on who’s weighed in, which has grown even since my own attempt to close the issue was posted last weekend: Time Out Chicago’s dining critic, The Reader’s dining critic, Grub Street, LTHForum, bartender Paul McGee, the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Magazine and, now, WBEZ.
In related news, hits to this humble little blog have skyrocketed. Which probably means I need to start updating it more regularly. More soon. (And I promise it won’t be gincident-related.)
