Ever wondered what a Weezer song tastes like? Apparently, so has Blue 13 chef Chris Curren, and he's decided to try to approximate the band's flavor with the first of his summer Rock 'n' Roll dinners tomorrow night (7:15 p.m., reservations required, (312) 787-1400).
Every Wednesday, Curren will prepare a five-course meal inspired by a different band for $50 per person. The full schedule of bands (including Radiohead, Nirvana and Kings of Leon) is after the jump, along with this week's Weezer menu. Our favorite? The "Half Japanese" pork belly duo.
