Chicago Sun-Times
Are you out in it? We're on it. All the street-level tunes, flicks, chow, cocktails and more from sources around the city ...

Think there will be foie gras?

It's often been said that Rogers Park is the most diverse neighborhood in Chicago. Nowhere is this more evident than its wide array of restaurants; walk down Clark Street and you'll find everything from a Caribbean bakery to a Middle Eastern cafe within a few blocks.

The Rogers Park Dinner Crawl: A World of Taste, sponsored by 49th Ward Alderman Joe Moore (he of the infamous foie-gras ban) and DevCorp North, aims to showcase the 'hood's many ethnic offerings. The event takes place this Sunday from 4-8 p.m., with samples available from the following participating restaurants:

African Harambee
Carribbean American Bakery
Charmers Cafe
Common Cup
Grande Noodle
Heartland Cafe
Jamaica Jerk
Lake Side Cafe
Las Islas Marias
Los Portales
Sahara Kabob
Taste Food & Wine

Tickets cost $25 in advance, or $30 at the door (the DevCorp North offices at 1557 W. Howard). Apparently it's already half sold-out, so get on it! Each participant will receive a "passport" to get stamped at each location, as well as a map. There will be free shuttle service with four stops along the route.
