Welcome to the 2nd Quimby's podcast! This is an interview with the authors of The Beat Cop’s Guide to Chicago Eats, Sgt. David J. Haynes of the Chicago Police Department and his partner-in-crime, blogger Christopher Garlington. They were at Quimby's for a release event on June 14th, 2011.
Peppered with outrageous stories from working cops, Chicago cop lore, and recipes, The Beat Cop’s Guide To Chicago Eats takes you on a gustatory journey through all five Chicago areas, including some of the toughest neighborhoods in the nation.
Sgt. David J. Biscuit Haynes has spent the past 15 years dodging bullets and chasing down gang bangers on the city’s West Side, running Chicago’s first ever Homeland Security Task Force, and supervising squads in the 19th District at Belmont and Western. Christopher “The Bull” Garlington is a blogger and author, known for his blog Death by Children.com. His writing has appeared in the Chicago Trib, Another Realm, Bathhouse, The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature and more. Together they have hosted the radio program The Dave & Chris Show! since 2007, which you can find on blogtalkradio.com, during which they cultivate and maintain a long-standing argument about pretty much everything, broadcast live from places like cigar stores and bars. From politics and video games to the importance of cool nicknames and secret societies, they cover it. The Beat Cop's Guide to Chicago Eats book retails at $15.95 and includes $34 in coupons. It’s like being buddies with your alderman. You can get it at quimbys.com or by coming into our store at 1854 W. North Ave, Chicago.
