George Wendt and Chef Pat Sheerin Come to Trenchermen Bar for THE DINNER PARTY TO GO Podcast, 9/23

On the inaugural podcast of "The Dinner Party To Go", famed actor George Wendt and host Elysabeth Alfano belly up to the bar at Trenchermen and join Executive Chef Pat Sheerin. Over Burrata, Octopus Posole, Pickle Tots, Ribs and beer, they talk about Chef discovering food by working at Taste of Chicago as a kid, gardening and pickling, Chicago Hot Dogs, favorite junk foods, George flunking out of Notre Dame and his early years at Second City.

"The Dinner Party To Go!" is a podcast version of The Dinner Party in which Alfano invites one celeb to meet her at a chef's restaurant and over food, wine and dessert the 3 of us discuss the food, hot topics, their projects and funny stories. This on-location extension of The Dinner Party concept makes my unscripted conversations between celebs and chefs accessible and on the go for anyone who can't make the live Dinner Party events.
