We know you’re now just as completely obsessed as we are with Achewood, the webcomic about some cats and alive stuffed animals living in suburban California that is by turns (and, often, all at once) philosophical, obscene, moving, frivolous, and brilliant — and which lent itself brilliantly to our coverage of The Publican. Achewood also deals with food fairly often, a topic in which we are obviously quite interested.
In light of that, we suggest you take The Reader’s suggestion that you go see Chris Onstad, mastermind behind the world of Achewood, at Quimby’s, our favorite Bucktown bookstore, tonight from 5-7pm.
And as long as you’re in the neighborhood, we also suggest you swing by Mado afterward for some of the ever-changing chalkboard specials — tonight, keep an eye out for the Wild Boar Terrine (swoon) or the Lamb Testa (the deliciousness of Mado’s testa is something to which we can personally attest).
Onstad would undoubtedly approve.
