Ming Tsai @ Chopping Block

PBS superchef Ming Tsai signs copies of his newest cookbook Simply Ming One Pot Meals: Quick, Healthy & Affordable Recipes and gives a cooking demo and tasting tonight from 5-7pm at the Chopping Block's Merchandise Mart store (222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza, Suite 107).

Julie Meckler @ The Hungry Brain

Julie Meckler and her young band play dulcet alt-rock with lyrics concerning the vagaries of a nomadic French poet, Meckler herself. If you're lucky you'll catch her beautiful rendition of Bowie's Stardust-era "Soul Love", but good luck recognizing it! Dig her swank and lovely voice tonight at The Hungry Brain. 2319 W. Belmont (Belmont and Western). Doors at 8pm.
