Don’t Panic! It’s Edible! (aka The Epicurean Experience)


It’s all edible, we promise! Come sample some goodies (and maybe not-so-goodies) both featured in and inspired by the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. We’ll have an all-new variety of thematic, diverse, and sometimes bizarre foods and drinks to explore. Take a nibble of things you’ve never seen and/or heard of before…or perhaps you are familiar with, but were reluctant to try. This event is ALCOHOL FREE, so anyone not wearing an “under 21” badge should visit before partaking of Pretentious Drinking and show us your PD ticket (which we will not take, so you can still use it later). Please note: we aren’t serving a meal, just samples and sips, so come for curiosity, not dinner.

Presenter’s Bio

Sue and Steve are thrilled to take over the reins of the Epicurean Experience from the very capable Kohlers. Sue is a 2nd grade teacher with Chicago Public Schools and is currently pursuing a culinary degree at Triton College, so not to worry, she knows what she’s doing. Steve works for an insurance company and watches countless hours of Food Network programming and really likes food, so that’s almost the same thing. They live in Chicago with their three cats, which, when it comes to eating, are only slightly less finicky than the average 2nd grader.
