Photographer Michael Weintrob: “Rock Your Palate presented by Thrillist and Mastercard “Priceless Chicago”

November 18, 2012

This article was published from the blog of Michael Weintrob, an amazing Brooklyn photographer with whom the band has worked with over the past few years.

On September 13 and 14th I had the great honor of being a co-host for Rock Your Palate.  This was an event that Mastercard and Thrillist put onto to bring food, music and art together in a priceless way. The event took place at theFloating World Gallery in Lincoln Park.   I was chosen to hang my images in the gallery.  During the day at the gallery I had a studio set up where I was shooting musicians from Chicago.    At night the gallery turned into a private party with an 80 person dinner with Top Chefs Giuuseppe Tentori, Dirk Flanagan and Sarah Grueneberg.  A band was put together by Ricardo Gonzalez both nights.  Ian Edgar was also on hand to start the evening with a video projectionist DJ set.  Below you will be able to take a look at some of the images that I shot in the studio over those two days as well as a few pictures from the event.  Check out their Priceless Chicago to find out more information on upcoming events.
