We were the hog butcher of the world... but most of that stockyard is gone now. There are still meatpacking businesses around Chicago, though, and David McAnich, a Chicago-based (though world-traveled) editor for Saveur, will be your guide for a look inside what remains of that world and how it got to be one of the things Chicago is best known for (after Capone and Jordan, of course). Put on by Chicago Detours, a local speciality tour business, the tour is called "From Cuts to Cult" and will focus on Fulton Market, allowing you inside one of the area's surviving traditional meatpackers, chats with chefs at Grange Hall Burger Bar and Publican Quality Meats complete with food and wine tastings, and more. It's Saturday, June 1 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., and it's $125 all inclusive; tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, here.
