Chef Karaoke Showdown

Following the inaugural throwdown, the West Loop Foodies have been cordially invited to BellyQ's Karaoke Throwdown. It features chefs coming together to release their inner-performers for a shot at taking home the ultimate karaoke title. The Throwdown will feature reigning champion Brian Huston of Publican taking on other top Chicago chefs. Performers will be judged on crowd support, singing talent, choreography and song choice by a panel of judges.

Additionally, Master Mixologist Peter Vestinos will craft the participating chefs’ favorite cocktails to help ease their performance nerves. The drinks will also be available for $5 on the bar menu for onlookers to enjoy while singing along to their favorite songs.

I am excited that we have been invited to partake in this unique opportunity!!

Looking forward to a fun event before Election Tuesday.

    Hi everyone,

    I Look forward to seeing everyone tonight. I just spoke with the marketing manager and she said Karaoke will be open to the public from 7-8 and then they will start the competition. There will be a few drinks for $3 including the matilda and the other cocktails will be $5. I will be arriving around 7:30 but show up whenever!

    Do we get to sing, too? Or just watch? Being judged sounds like a lot of pressure... but also fun!! Thanks for organizing! :)

      I think for the most part just watch but there might be the possibly of participating as well...it was not super clear to me when BellyQ reached out.

      Fair enough! I will be there either way. And I think there is karaoke at the Bedford after (that's in Wicker Park, not West Loop) around 10:30 if anyone is interested.

    Is it ok to come later? I probably won't be able to get there until 9.

    November 4, 2012

    • Amy

      I will be there until about 10...I think the competition goes till then but obviously people can come and go as they please.
