Through no conscious fault of my own, I have somehow fallen onto the mailing list for WTTW's "Check Please" Planner.  This is a weekly email self-billed as "a curated look at food-related happenings around town."

For the moment I will set aside my annoyance at the overuse of the term "curated."  I will try not to question the wisdom of "pumpkin quesadillas."  And I will attempt, desperately and with little hope of success, to get my brain to stop singing "duck liver mousse" to the tune of "New River Train."  Dining on that duck liver mousse, dining on that duck liver mousse...

Instead, because me iz a professional editor, I simply note this item in today's email:

Halloween at County Barbeque:
The lights are turned down and guests are served house-smoked meats by candlelight - surrounded by spider webs and skeleton decor. Guests are dared to try out the special dish of the night - a traditional Mexican tripe taco in a smoked tomato sauce that resembles guts. Those brave enough to order will receive a complimentary whiskey shot of the day.


I beg to inform these people that a Mexican tripe taco does not resemble guts.  It IS guts.  Thank you.
