I had a great time at the event last night - Smoque and Ina’s (2 chicago staples!) teamed up again this year to to make a fantastic pastrami on rye.
None other than Steve Dolinsky stopped by and tweeted that we were the “best bite” of the night, and “the best pastrami chicago has ever seen”! Mad props to Barry for making such an awesome meat, and I’m thankful to have met and worked with Ina and Shawna of Ina’s, Amy (Barry’s close friend, who was super friendly), and Mike(whose optimism kept me going through the heat). Everyone was great, and the attendees loved the pastrami!
