Gaztro-Wagon's Maroni on WTTW; one sixtyblue's blind wine tasting; Rock Bottom's Beer School

EVERYWHERE—Whatever side of the debate you happen to fall, there's no question food trucks are a hot topic in Chicago at the moment. Gaztro-Wagon owner Matt Maroni appears on WTTW's Chicago Tonight this evening to argue the point for the mobile food mobiles. Check, Please! host and master sommelier Alpana Singh will also show up, but she's there to discuss wine, natch. [WTTW/Twitter]

RIVER NORTH—Not so into wine? Rock Bottom Brewery kicks off a monthly "Beer School" Jan. 4 with $15 hour-and-a-half class.
