Step Right Up: Maxwell St. Video Foray, June 1, 9:30 AM

David Hammond | May 30, 200308:33 AM

COME…join us for the Maxwell Street Video Foray, this Sunday, June 1. We meet at the corner of Roosevelt and Canal, at the front door of the Dominick’s at 9:30 AM. If you get lost on the day of the event, you can call 708-902-3969 for an update on where the group is at.

EAT…huitlacoche, the ancient Aztec Food of the Gods; sacramental tamales, moist and plump, from the distant state of Oaxaca; tacos prepared from every region of bovine bounty.

DRINK…silky horchata, earthy goat consommé, and fruity waters in all the colors of the rainbow (and then some)

BE MERRY…with the most enthusiastic band of eating aficionados you will ever find, anywhere!

GAZE…in unabashed admiration at the ambidextrous Wild Pupusa-Making Salvadorena, the gracious El Colonial, and the high-energy food preparation techniques of Signor Elote.

GAP…in heart-stopping awe at the remarkable range of comestibles, perhaps the most delicious spectrum of Hispanic street cuisine this side of the Rio Grande.

GUFFAW…as Seth narrates the steps involved in churro filling with medieval torture/surgical tools. You won’t believe your eyes!

PROFIT…as El Panzone explains, in layman’s terms, how you can calculate your stock picks based on the cycles of the moon!! You won’t believe your ears!

LEARN…from Cathy2 how to eat a bone-in pork chop sandwich. It’s not as easy as it looks.

WITNESS…the painstaking exactitude of VI’s taxonomic analysis of salsa components, his precise spice profiles, his magisterial pronouncements.

LOOK…out for RST, the Invisible Presence, who stands behind and beyond the Chicago board, seen in the flesh by only a chosen few. Is that him lurking behind the epazote?! Could that be His Mysteriousness coyly camouflaging himself with a banana leaf? Who knows?! You’ll have to come and find out.

WEEP…uncontrollably at the unspeakable beauty of the Masa Madonna.

THRILL…to the unparalleled largesse of Gary “Ultimo” Wiviott’s no-holds-barred, sky’s-the-limit ordering style. “Make that three of everything for everybody!”

SEE…yourself in pictures (if you want to be)in a local Comcast program that will be shot and edited by the creative team of Mike G and Zach. It is too cool!
