Steve Dolinsky is a journalist and personality in the food and drink world, and resides in Chicago. His daughter attends the University of Illinois, so he and his ABC crew headed down to check out some establishments here in C-U to get a taste of what the scene is like before next weekend's Homecoming celebration at the U of I.

Check out a couple of videos below (from the accompanying article), where the Dolinsky's explore Courier Cafe, Watson's, Black Dog, MIGA, Hopscotch, and BrewLab. And hey! Even a beer from Triptych (as you can see in the top photo).
