We first chatted with Ben, Jason and Josh the team behind Giant in Chicago and now Chef's Special Cocktail Bar on January 14th in the midst of staff training. As you will soon hear one of the key reasons for opening Chef's Special was to provide new growth opportunities to their team including bringing over new partners from the Giant team; Aaron, Tom, and Chase. Today we catch up with Chase Bracamontes, GM Bev Manager and Partner about the opening and re-opening of Chef’s Special and how its impacted their team.

In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
