This 241st episode of the Rusty Satellite Show was recorded on Valentine’s Day, and I was happy to be joined by a festive Carolyn McLean in the studio to talk about an interesting week in the ‘Ville. Plus, she brought me chocolate.
My first guest has already claimed fame as a nationally-renowned chef, and he got his start right here at 610 Magnolia, which he’s made his own. Plus, Chef Edward Lee operates Milkwood in Actors Theatre and a D.C. restaurant. So why did he open Whiskey Dry on Fourth Street Live!? Tune in to find out why, and hear about Lee’s passion for helping aspiring chefs get into the industry.
Contrary to what we say on the podcast, this is the 5th Annual Tailspin Ale Fest, and Liquor Barn plays a big role as a sponsor. Molly Alviar, a former UK cheerleader, handles marketing and events for the now-local company. Last year, the company was purchased by Blue Equity of Louisville. Brian Price, the “Beer Guy” at Liquor Barn, chimes in with some info on the Barrel-aged offerings available at Tailspin.
Carolyn and I discuss our upcoming venture in podcasting – the re-launch of EatDrinkTalk. Plus, we get a chuckle or two from the recent auction of items by Tom Jurich, and we discuss the pros and cons of Valentine’s Day.
