It’s been 10 years since a little ol’ Food Network host named Rachael Ray decided she loved our weird little city enough to host a big SXSW party in its honor.
That’s a decade of crazy lines to get in, but free (and surprisingly delicious) food and stellar music once you get there.
This year, Ray and husband John Cusimano have put together another Rachael Ray Feedback party that will draw thousands to Stubb’s, 801 Red River St., on Saturday, March 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Ray just tweeted out the poster for this year’s Feedback party with the band lineup: Weezer, De La Soul, Action Bronson, Margo Price, The Districts, Benjamin Booker, Bob Schneider, The Drums, The Cringe, Caitlyn Smith, Gutxi Bibang, Big Thief, Radkey, Lolo
Her promotion team also gave me the list of food that will be served at next week’s party:
- TexMex TOTchos (Tater Tot Nachos)
- Panchos con Queso (Hot Dogs with Queso)
- Queso on the Cobb (Corn with Queso)
- Nachos con Chorizo & Queso Suprema (Nachos with Chorizo and Queso)
This feels like the first year we haven’t seen a barbecue item on the menu, but with all that queso, I don’t think you’ll hear many complaints.
Last year, Ray hosted her first Feedback event outside of Austin, but no word yet on if the Chicago Feedback event will take place this summer or not.
