Merge's Dish column points out two food events next Tuesday:

1. Head to the Notebaert Nature Museum, 2430 N. Cannon Dr., and "eat scorpions, rattlesnakes, crickets and other exotic munchies" at the "Taste of Adventure." Free, but reservations required: call 888/281-8502.

2. Watch Rachael Ray film an episode of Food Network's "Inside Dish with Rachael Ray" at Piece, 1927 W. North Ave. She'll be talking with Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen. (Shouldn't they be in Rockford, then?)
