The food industry’s “Oscars” are set to take place yet again in Chicago on Monday, May 6th, but you can bet a lot of industry people are in town the weekend before, and they all have one thing on their mind: where do we eat (and drink)? We’re giving you the lowdown on where to do both, like a local, as we talk with the founder of a local food site that does quite a bit more than just listicles and Top 7 places to eat steak with Fooditor’s Michael Gebert. Plus, we’ll meet Shelby Alison, one of the women behind the 2nd annual Chicago Style, a cocktail conference going on for a few days after the Beards. Talk about a hangover. We’re rolling out the red carpet, and you don’t even need an invitation.
