I’ve been looking for food blogs and foodies – and I thought you might be interested to know that The Stew, one of the Chicago Tribune’s blogs, is hosting its first live web video chat today! The two hosts are looking for questions, so if you would like to ask a food/restaurant related question, post it as a comment here:

The chat is scheduled for 2 p.m., so make sure you post your questions soon!
