Turns out, Fattyooshko is a bike race set up by the folks down at Ben's Cycle & Fitness on Lincoln Ave and is held down the road from their shop at Kosciusko (“Koz-shoo-sko”) Park down the way from the St. Josephat Basilica on the South Side.

Starting this month, we have partnered with the good folks over at The Pabst Theater Group for a new monthly blog series called Backstage Dinner. Each month we will ask The Pabst Theater's Chefs, Kevin Sloan, Lou lou Guolee and Julie Thorsen, to share the menu and photo's of a meal they prepared for a band playing at the theater. They will also provide at least one recipe from that menu. I can't think of any other venues in the country that have their own in-house Chefs.
