Hello It's Me ... I'm Hungry

Can we still be friends ... if I ate all of your french fries?

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is teaming up with Maker’s Mark for Chef Jam 2010: Cleveland Food Rocks, a gorge-yourself-on-lots-of-different-dishes-till-you-puke event happening on June 13.

But the big news here isn't the more than two dozen local restaurants (including Bar Symon and a couple of Zach Bruell's places) that are participating. Nope, the big news is that while you're noshing on tiny apps you can't pronounce, Todd Rundgren will sing to you.

Chef Jam is actually centered on a performance by Cream of the Crop, the local band made up of area restaurant workers, and sets by groups formed by other local food workers (including employees of Greenhouse Tavern, Happy Dog, and Melange).

It all culminates in Rundgren's appearance with Cream of the Crop. Hopefully, they'll cater some of his tunes to the event — "We Gotta Get You a Napkin"? "Hello It's Peas"? "Bang the Drumstick All Day"? (OK, I'll stop now.)

Tickets are $50. Proceeds benefit Tri-C’s Culinary Arts program and the Rock Hall’s education programs. —Michael Gallucci (follow me on Twitter @mgallucci)
