Bring on the rhubarb
Self-described savory guy Dave Ford, chef at the Bluebird, paired strawberries and rhubarb with sturgeon for last week's Key Ingredient. But his snacks for the Bucktown lounge's California beer tasting tonight at 7:30 PM include Belgian-style lace cookies with lemon curd and rhubarb, along with artisanal cheeses, pulled rabbit crostini with blueberries, and flatbreads with goat cheese, pork sausage, mushrooms, and house-made giardiniera. Among the dozen beers are Stone Brewing's 2011 Old Guardian, Lagunitas Brewing Company's Undercover Investigation Shut-Down Ale, Green Flash's Saison Diego, and Port Brewing's Anniversary Ale—"nothing supercrazy," says our resident geek, but air-conditioning is included. It's $30 per person; reservations, at, are recommended.
