As a part of our never-ending quest to help people find better food, I’ll be blogging about Chicago life on NBC5 Chicago’s Street Team blog (Thanks for the opporunity Marcus!). I’ll be focusing on restaurants around Chicago as I embark on my personal goal to try every restaurant in the city…budget and lifespan allowing . The blog is a team effort of about 30 volunteers:
The Street Team is a diverse group of Chicago-area residents who have at least one thing in common — they love to hang out and stay in-the-know when it comes to the myriad of entertainment choices this metro area has to offer.
So far it’s been pretty exciting to be part of this team. I got to go to the NBC building in Chicago to take a tour of the news room and shoot a video intro in one of the tv studios. They had the professional camera crew and all the lights on and each volunteer was supposed to do a quick couple sentence intro. It was intimidating to watch some of the NBC pros calmly and smoothly give their pitch. If you’re curious, here’s my profile and video intro (requires Windows Media Player).
