1. Favorite band with some sort of food in its name:
Cap'n Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters [ed.note - nice one! check them out here]

2. Give us your favorite vegetable and how you like it prepared:
Meat and Potatoes. Any which way.

3. If you could only eat 1 flavor of ice cream for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I would get sick of any one flavor, so I would choose vanilla for use as a blank canvas for all those lovely toppings.

4. Favorite food show:
Good Eats narrowly beats out Top Chef. Top Chef may have the sexier host and all that drama, but Good Eats indulges my love of random knowledge. Especially random culinary knowledge. Don't get me started on Mark Kurlansky.

5. Please describe your ideal 2 am drunken feast:
I do not seem to be the only one at La Pasadita drunk at 2 a.m. I will have 3 carne asada tacos, onion, cilantro, and cheese please. Oh, and a large horchata.

6. Favorite steak-house side dish:
Keep it simple. Potato. Baked. Pat of butter. Lest you detract from the main event.

7. If you live in Chicago, give us your favorite restaurant here in
Chi-town. If not, share with us the number one spot in your city
:
Hands down. Lula Cafe. My favorite even before I lived within walking distance. Never ordered the same thing twice. Never had a disappointing meal.

8. How do you take your coffee?
At work: Black. At home: Cream and Sugar. At brunch: Grand Marnier and Bailey's.

9. Top 3 condiments:
• Bacon
• Oil & Vinegar
• Real Maple Syrup

10. How do you like d'em apples?
Cidered and bourboned.
