As you may know by now, I'm giving away a pair of tickets (value: $190) each day this week to Share Our Strength's "Taste of the Nation," (at which I'll be the MC). The organizers have assembled a Who's Who of Chicago's culinary talent this year (45 chefs, 15 pastry chefs, a half-dozen mixologists) and the theme is "street food" which will be interesting to see how they do it at the Aragon (God knows I'd rather eat there than see a band - the acoustics suck).

Speaking of street food, I'd love to hear a limerick, rhyme, joke, haiku or other witty riff on why you'd like to attend this year's "street food" themed gala. Most creative, thoughtful response here in the comments section wins two tickets to the event. Deadline is 4 p.m. CST today. Good luck!
