So there's a new restaurant opening in Chicago called Pitchfork. I know, right? I know. The jokes practically write themselves--actually, they don't, which is why Idolator sent out the call on Twitter for jokes that combine gustatory wit with music dork knowledge. The result: "9.4 Best New Jokes About Pitchfork." Some of them are pretty good, like No. 3, by @timoni, "The daily specials are a sly nod to the chef's early menus, hearkening back to his pre-1986 seminal street food work." But check out who clocked in at No. 1--Nashville's own Dave Paulson with a Music City-centric entry: "I hear the new Lambchop is good. And it comes with 2 sides!"
We were in the middle of a moderately hectic production day here at the Scene, and I didn't get around to playing. So here's my belated Pitchfork the Restaurant Not the Website entry:
"The dinner special is basically Animal Collective meets The Knife."
Thanks, I'll be here all week!
