Every Friday, I'll be doing a piece on Rivet News Radio called "Eat the Weekend," a run-down of three local restaurants at three price points.
Rivet News Radio is a customizable, downloadable app that enables you to listen to radio programs and select the kind of programs you'd like to hear…including my food-focused pieces, like "Eat the Weekend."
In this first episode, I cover local favorite Gene and Jude's, Old Crow Smokehouse in Wrigleyville, and The Lobby at the Peninsula downtown.
Every week I'll provide brief and, I hope, helpful coverage of three different eating spots. The idea is to give listeners quick ideas for where they might go to eat over the weekend.
I'm working on this series with several individuals, including Oak Park's Charley Meyerson, who is handling Rivet's News Strategies initiative.
At the site, you can also download the Rivet News Radio app.
If you have any local favorites, please post about them here – I plan on doing an all Oak Park segment soon.
