The newly formed Esquire Network has recently debuted a new series, Alternate Route, one where the “great American road trip meets the modern era as blogger and photojournalist Matt Hranek hits the road in search of people, places and objects that embody the timeless American spirit.” Episode five of the first season focuses on Chicago and for it, Hranek paid a visit to Longman, staying in our rooms upstairs.
The episode features longtime L&E friend Max Wastler (All Plaid Out, Buckshot Sonny’s and more), offering Hranek advice and tips on what to do and see in Chicago. The two paid us another visit at the OSB last evening, to preview the show and work through a platter of Matthew ‘Skittles’ Sliwinski’s cheddar brats, often featured on ourSaturday Sausage Shop menu.
It was a great event, and good times where had by all – thanks, guys!
update: You can see and read a little more about Matt’s favorite things from Chicago on the Esquire TV Blog.
