Be sure to tune in Wednesday, May 27th at 3:00pm to hear our interview with Ben & Jack's Steak House Executive Chef Admir Alibasic.
Admir Alibasic began working as a dishwasher at Ben & Jack's Steak House in high school. Watching the chef and line cooks work in the restaurant stoked his desire to become a chef. Alibasic's great passion for cooking led him to seek knowledge, learning cooking techniques from top chefs in the steakhouse industry and developing his eye for beef. Over time, he worked his way up through different roles in the kitchen starting with prep for dinner service to a line cook to specialist chef. Finally, as his skill set, confidence and creative ability became apparent, he was named Executive Chef of Ben & Jack's Steak House. While exploring and excelling in the kitchen, Alibasic also pursued a Bachelor's of Science degree from Hunter College where he majored in food science.He has been featured in multiple magazines, newspapers, radio interviews and television shows. Alibasic enjoys donating his time for charity events and has participated in over a dozen different events.

Joining Mary E. today will be Michelle Durpetti, daughter of proprietors Tony and Marion Durpetti and granddaughter of founder Gene Michelotti. Also, joining us will be Molly Philosophos Director of Development with Hephzibah Children's Association.
Chicago legend Gene & Georgetti, nestled under the El tracks at 500 N. Franklin St., supports National Adoption Month in November by donating a portion of proceeds from all dessert sales- including handmade Tiramisu, Chocolate Tuxedo Mousse Cake, and their famous Italian Lemon Crème Layer Cake- to Oak Park based Hephzibah Children’s Association.
Hephzibah’s Group Homes are where abused and neglected children come to heal and grow, where they can be free of fear, worry, and loneliness. Their family based services renew and strengthen family bonds and their foster care services create new, loving and secure family ties. Hephzibah’s day care program offers an award winning educational experience for children in the community — regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
Since opening in 1941, Gene & Georgetti is still family owned and operated. Co-founder Gene Michelotti’s daughter Marion Durpetti and her husband Tony Durpetti purchased the restaurant in 1990 after the passing of her father. Marion’s cousin Richard Ciota serves as general manager while their daughter Michelle Durpetti runs marketing and events. "We are thrilled to bring some attention to and donate toward Hepzibah during National Adoption Month. As a family who has enjoyed the blessings of adoption, this is a cause very close to our heart," says the Durpetti Family.

AFTER THE FIRST DATE GOES BAD.....Is There A Chance For A Second Date?
Scenario: Let’s Try It Again After Going Dutch
Gerald and Melinda part two. Remember the popular scenario about two-dollar pancake? Well Gerald has offered to take Melinda to the
Outback Steakhouse and stated that he'd cover all the expenses. He also apologized for the other day and stated he was in a bad spot; he really enjoyed Melinda’s company and stated he had a surprise for her, Melinda feels that he seems sincere. In your opinion, should she give Gerald another chance?
Female Perspective: I would give him another chance just based on the fact that he was “man enough” to apologize and be honest about his situation. We don’t know the details of the first date. She may have enjoyed his company as
well. Dismissing people so quickly is not only unfair to that person but possibly to you too. Could miss out on a “good thang”
Female Perspective: If she feels he is sincere I don’t see a problem with giving him a 2nd chance. I would make sure she has money on her just in case there’s an issue. The Controversial Counselors take: There had to be a gut feeling on why she declined the second date, there is no need to star in that movie again. When you work so hard to get a shot at the title and you fold under pressure, that opportunity may never happen again. Seize the moment or else ponder in what if land. Keep it moving, Melinda, he had his chance to dance, he chose to be a wallflower. This time you may get stuck with the whole bill surprise! Move on, never look back.
