Chicago Sighting: I Saw a Man, He Dined with His Wives

Ah, possums, Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin' town, where the man sighted (LTH Forum via The Chicago Reader) was none other than Marcel Vigneron. The three women with him were not his wives ("Wrong gender, dude!"): Sandee Birdsong, Josie Smith-Malave, and Tiffani Faison. Holy Lesbian Triple Threat!

According to the sighting, Marcel and the Dreamgirls were spotted last Friday at Frontera Grill "with stage makeup on." Furthermore, Marcel "is growing some type of weird Abe Lincoln meets Hobbit-type beard." (There's a joke in there, possums, about Marcel, three lesbians, and beards, but "Marcel is gay" jokes are trop last season for us, and so we desist.) At any rate, what this means, possums, is that it looks as if Season 4 has already begun filming, well before next week's Chicago-based live reveal. If any of you Chicagoan possums catch sight of a stray cheftestant or two, wield those cell-phone cameras and drop us a line.

It's the new Charlie's Angels, Top Chef style. I think Marcel is the new Bosley? The Angels solve culinary mysteries like why chefs always make desserts when they aren't required. They are also looking into the disappearance of Ken and Mia's restaurant.

Well good for them for not making the Project Runway mistake with TC. I think PR4 is going to start in 2009.

My source in Chicago also reports preparations have begun. And espied the "magical elves" prepping the Art Institute of Chicago for filming whilst being annoyed by the loathesome Andy Cohen.

The Art Institute ( rather impressive) is affilliated with several third-rate "colleges". Including a Culinary School.

From the extent of the renovations, my source thinks the Art Institute might be "home-base" for Season 4 Cheftestants.

Y'all can read more about it at my blog. My source is also looking to verify a story about Dale's post-Top-Chef job-offers.
