PIGS IN BLANKETS, A SYMPOSIUM: Sporkful World Tour with Guest Mary Giuliani

WED // MAY 08 // 06:30PM

What makes a great pig in a blanket? What's the ideal ratio of pastry crust to dog? Are they better when they're one big hot dog wrapped in pastry and sliced up? In this live taping of THE SPORKFUL food podcast, host Dan Pashman discusses these vital issues and more with chef and caterer Mary Giuliani, author of the new memoir TINY HOT DOGS. Mary is one of the top caterers in the country, and she has the crazy stories to prove it. Join us to hear her talk about the lengths she's gone to to pull off events, and the times that, despite her efforts, things went horribly wrong.

More about the Sporkful:

The Sporkful isn't for foodies, it's for eaters. It's a podcast where host Dan Pashman obsesses about food to learn more about people, whether that means talking with people like Padma Lakshmi, Weird Al, Phoebe Robinson, and Amy Sedaris, discussing deeper issues of food and identity, or arguing about the ideal surface-area-to-volume ratio of ice cubes. The Sporkful is the #1 food podcast in Apple Podcasts. It's produced by Stitcher.

Doors 6:30 PM, show 7:00 PM.
Tickets $15 in advance, $20 at the door.
