EDITOR’S NOTE BRAD THORP
It’s World Cup time! Aside from the Olympics, I believe this is the biggest and most exciting worldwide sports event. Each continent is involved, sending teams from countries big and small to compete in a world arena. It doesn’t get any better! It is unfortunate that soccer is so underrated here in the states. This lends itself to little media coverage during non-World Cup years, and a lack of general knowledge of the sport here in the states. Of course, there are exceptions, and the MLS is growing into a more widely accepted and followed force. But, as a general rule, the U.S. is far behind the rest of the world in its appreciation of the sport. I won’t try and convince you that I am a die-hard fan, have subscriptions to magazines or television stations dedicated to bringing coverage to the masses, or even have a jersey from a team I follow. I wish I was more dedicated, but I just don’t have the time. However, I will say that the entire soccer world is fascinating. Fans from different countries are very passionate about their teams, and will ﬁght, sometimes literally, for them. Before I really understood the sport, this fact really drew my attention. I think that if there is something that people are willing to get beat up over, there must be something to it. My following of the sport really started during the last World Cup, four years ago. I had a few friends who would all get together and watch the matches, and their excitement and knowledge made me want to learn all I could. Approaching this Cup, I have already established my “viewing buddies,” and will be meeting them throughout the entire competition to soak in the tournament. For some people, the game is just too slow and they are hard to sit through, only to be end in a 1-0 win. To some degree, this is understandable. My advice is to really watch the dynamics of the game. It takes so much teamwork and set up for a goal to be scored most of the time. These players are playing at the peak of their abilities, and when in concert with each other, it is really a sight to see. The World Cup is a great starting point for newcomers to the sport. The game will be televised well, the commentary will be top-notch and the players will be the best in the world. Don’t miss it!

TALK TO BUZZ
by Ellen Hornor The combination of hunger and poverty is a paradox well-known to many. But living on a budget doesn’t mean having to miss out on sampling the tasty treats available around town. Here are my top tips for frugally enjoying the Taste of CU, held June 11–13 at West Side Park in Champaign. To get an idea of where to start, tickets for food and events are 6/$5. Set limits. Before embarking on your taste-test of CU’s finest, know how much you’re willing to spend. Promise yourself you won’t spend more than you would ordinarily fork over for a meal out, or only bring a set amount with you. Set a price ceiling and stick to it. Go with a plan. The Champaign Park District website, at www.champaignparkdistrict.com/ events/taste/2010Tastemap.pdf, offers a listing of all vendors and events that will be at the Taste. Check it out beforehand and make a list of the main spots you want to hit so you won’t be distracted by yummy smells once you’re there. Divide and conquer. Arrange to hit the Taste with a group of friends, a significant other, a blind date, or a random friendly co-worker. Together, you can construct a strategy so each person buys from a different vendor. Trade bites and enjoy! Branch out. If you already love Manolos empanadas or Geovanti’s gyros, opt for sampling the wares of a place you’ve never tried. Get the most for your money by finding new favorites and trying something new. Bring your bike. This year the Taste is doing its part to “go green.” Patrons who bike to the event rather than driving will receive the perk of “a coupon for a free beverage at one of [the] Pepsi tents,” according the event’s website. So bring your friends, your bikes and a healthy appetite, to eat up and save! Bon appetit!

» Post-rain life: Okay, rain is relaxing as long as you have nothing outdoors-y to do and you don’t have to leave your bed. Other than that, I’m not the biggest fan of those inconvient drops. But, once things quit storming, the colors of the world are highlighted tenfold, and I can’t help but breathe in thoughts of goodness. Greens, golds, ambers: life and all it is glows anew with a fresh wash. Plus, puddles and stomping rainboots are the world’s greatest combination. Jus’ sayin’. » Local artists and business owners: Recently, I had the privilege of meeting a number of CU’s crafts men and women and the experience left me feeling empowered and ready to get back to my own work as an artist. These people each hold true to their passions by making and sharing their perspectives with society in intensely beautiful and wholly unique ways. They don’t live to love; they love to live! And, as they do so, they brighten the people and homes around them. » My housemates: I adore coming back after classes or long shifts of work to these people! Someone is always around and, not unlike my puppy, I’m always happy to see them and find out what they’re up to in the abode. We genuinely talk to one another, watch our countless number of Netflix moves together, head out to the bars and even teach each other to cook! What’s not to love? That’s right, nothing!

taste around the world
Getting the most out of your taste-testing by geography
by Jeanine Russell The Taste of CU might be all about the restaurants in our community, but most of the food represented showcases the best of what the rest of the world has to offer. Whether you are a traditional pizza fan, or wanting to branch out into the world of chicken tikka or thai coffee, everything is for sample at the Taste. This weekend, when heading down to West Side Park, check out this map and try out the taste of a few countries you might be skipping over.
4 » VIETNAM In case you have been hearing all about banh mi sandwiches or boba tea since the opening of Xinh Xinh Cafe and haven’t found a time to try them out, they will be available at their Taste booth.
5 » CHINA China’s a big place and needs both Shanghai 1938 and Peking Garden to represent them. They will be serving egg rolls, fried rice and crab rangoon to keep the Chinese cravings satisfied.
7 » GREECE Those who stop by Zorba’s for a quick lunch on campus already know about their classic gyros, but for those looking for some Greek food at Taste, stop by the Zorba’s booth. They will also be serving baklava for those looking for a classic dessert.
1 » THAILAND Nitaya Thai Restaurant, located in downtown Champaign, and Siam Terrace, located in downtown Urbana, are Thai staples of their respective areas. Both will be serving pad Thais and various other Thai sides. 2 » ITALIAN There are several pizza places who could fill this spot, but Mezza Luna wins the true Italy spot for its tortellini, tiramisu and antipasto salads. 3 » SPAIN AND PORTUGAL “Empanar,” in Spanish, means ”to wrap in bread,” thus empanada. These dough-covered finger foods will be available in chicken, beef or vegetable for dos (that means two!) tickets each from Manolo’s pizza and empanadas.
6 » AMERICA It can’t be a Midwestern Taste festival without some hamburgers and BBQ. Junior’s Burgers and Custard, Fireside, and Louie’s BBQ will have all the American staples you can handle.
8 » CARIBBEAN ISLANDS Don’t let “jerk” confuse you. This insult is actually just a type of seasoning that is used in the Caribbean region. Caribbean Grill will also be serving red beans and rice and fruit punch for a taste of the Islands here in the middle of cornfields. 9 » INDIA Dedicated to providing CU with quality Indian groceries and food at their Green Street location, Mirsung will be serving Indian fast food including South Indian lamb with rice and and Tandoori chicken at Taste of CU.

Side Dishes of Art and Music
Patrons find more than good eats at the Taste of CU
by Derek Beigh
“I demonstrate to anyone. Kids like to watch, adults like to watch. A lot of adults are interested in learning how to do it,” Rhoads said. “Tops are popular with kids from three to 83.” Universal appeal is an aim of the music at the Taste as well. “We try to provide a lot of diversity in the kind of music that we offer,” Auteberry said. “We feature a variety of genres. We have rock ‘n’ roll. We have country. We have folk. We have jazz. We have a little bit of everything, so we’re meeting all the different needs and interests of the community.” Chris Quinlan, lead singer of Bloomington band Bottle of Justus, said festivals like the Taste are a great change of pace from the usual venues the band sees. “There’s nothing better than being outside and getting out of the bars,” said Quinlan. “Four nights a week we play at nightclubs that are dark and you can’t see what’s going on. It’s refreshing.” Quinlan also said that festivals are a great opportunity to appeal to a wider audience than a typical show as well. “When we get to do festivals like this, all ages come out,” said Quinlan. “It’s always fun to watch different generations out there. We try to entertain everybody.” Quinlan and his twin brother Joe have toured the country since starting the band at Illinois State University in 1997, but Chris said Champaign remains a favorite community to play. “I love Champaign. We’ve played Champaign a lot,” Quinlan said. “There are really good crowds out there, and we haven’t been to Champaign in a while, so I’m excited about that.” Above all, Auteberry said the Taste of CU is focused on charity; it funds a scholarship that provides underprivileged kids with park district programs.

“We award over $30,000 a year to children so they can participate in our programs,” Auteberry said. She went on to say that the funds are great for “children who otherwise wouldn’t be able to participate because their families can’t afford the fees for things like summer camps or swim lessons or sports programs.” Other park district activities funded by the scholarship include dance lessons and arts and crafts programs. How much goes to that fund is determined by the profit from the Taste, so Auteberry encourages attendees to eat up. “It’s to support a great cause, and the more people eat, the more kids we get to send to camp,” said Auteberry.
Quinlan said he likes that the Taste can bring food and entertainment together for a good cause. “How cool is it to be able to play at something where at the end of the day it’s not just a big company or a bar that gets the profits?” Quinlan said. “It’s actually doing something to help somebody else. That’s awesome.”
At an event with a name like Taste of CU, you might expect food to be the only attraction. If that’s the case, you might want to look further when the festival kicks off. The three-day event will stretch throughout the weekend on Friday, June 11, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, June 12, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, June 13, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at West Side Park. Laura Auteberry of the Champaign Park District said entertainment is a big part of attracting the nearly 50,000 expected to attend the Taste of CU, even though she added that “the biggest feature is the food.” In addition to over 30 food vendors, this year’s event will feature nearly 50 local artists at booths and several bands and entertainers on three stages throughout the park. Of the craft sellers at the Taste, a few will be what Auteberry calls “demonstrating artists,” who will show live what goes into creating their particular project. Jerry Rhoads of Jerry Rhoads Woodturning said attracting a crowd with his demonstrations is a big part of the fun of the Taste. “I love to demonstrate. I get into a lot of conversations,” Rhoads said. He added that his favorite part of the event is meeting new people, and that he occasionally tries to get away from his booth and see the other artists demonstrating at the festival, such as potters and sculptors. Rhoads, who’s been selling his wood creations since 2006, said drawing an audience with a demonstration is also good for sales. “It gets people to stop and see what’s going on, and look around at my things,” Rhoads said. “Business has been pretty good, and I have a pretty good time there.” Rhoads added that woodturning, like many of the crafts at the Taste, appeals to people of all ages.

Maintaining dietary balance at the Taste of CU is not impossible
by Jeanine Russell The Taste of CU is a food-lover’s dream come true. It is a festival dedicated to celebrating and honoring the diverse restaurants of our community. While it is definitely good to let yourself indulge a little bit while trying new things and enjoying yourself, it is also a good idea to treat your body well. No one expects you to follow all of these tips, but maybe pick one or two favorites and stick to those: 1. Drink water
It’s June and it is hot. Water is absolutely essential for your body, and sugary drinks such as soda or sweetened iced tea are only going to dehydrate your body further, not to mention add extra calories. If you do nothing else health-conscious during the Taste, deciding to eat all the cheesecake and fries you can find, try a glass or two of water to wash it down and balance the weekend out.
2. Find colors!
This is a classic trick for getting small children to eat a bunch of different vegetables, but it could work for you too. If you realize that everything that you’ve eaten for two days is yellow or brown, it might be time to try some green or red. Look for vegetarian options that substitute vegetables instead of meat. It’s a smart way to enjoy the flavors of dishes while sneaking in some vitamins and minerals. Edible Arrangements will be at the Taste this year, offering slices of fruit and strawberries dipped in chocolate. Sounds like the perfect excuse to eat some chocolate, really. Gotta get some fruit in the weekend one way or the other!
you must have the sandwich, though. In that case, try to find wheat. 4. Do a lap first
3. Skip the bread
Many vendors are offering plain meat versions of dishes, or meat on a stick; try those instead of the sandwich ones. Protein is good for you, while white bread is not. Sometimes
See what you want to try and what looks best before you start trading those tickets in. That way you aren’t eating pad Thai from your favorite place in town and realize you wanted empanadas, and inevitably end up eating both. It’s good to have somewhat
of a plan or idea what you want to try before impulsively ordering. Small portions can get out of hand quickly if you aren’t conscious of what you are eating. Plus, you just added to your exercise for the day. 5. Go in a group
Split things, save money and maximize tastes. That way you can try both of the delicious-looking desserts. buzz

One on One
with matt mortenson owner of zorba’s and taste of cu vendor
by Sarah Bransley Imagine being able to enjoy all the different foods of ChampaignUrbana in one place. Well, put yourself in a park, add some family fun and live music, and you’ve got the Taste of the CU! This year’s 40th annual celebration will be held on Friday, June 11, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, June 12, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, June 13, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at West Side Park. Tickets for food, beverages and activities are sold in sheets of 6 for $5. Also a great cause, the Taste benefits the Champaign Park District’s Youth Program Scholarship Fund. buzz sat down with one of the best-known and longest-standing vendors, Zorba’s owner Matt Mortenson, to get a look at the Taste from his point of view. » buzz: What is your role in the Taste of the CU? Matt Mortenson: We’re one of the longest-standing restaurant vendors. We don’t go out just to hand out samples; we do smaller portions maybe, but we go out there to market the store. A lot of people don’t like to come to campus that don’t work on campus or aren’t students, so it gives the townspeople a chance to come, and a lot of them tell me they would come more often if there was better parking and all that kind of thing. So it’s kind of a nice chance for us to really get with the community and speak with those out in the Champaign-Urbana area. » buzz: Who comes to the event? Is there a certain crowd? MM: It’s kind of hard to say. I mean, it’s really a good mix of the whole community. I see regular customers that come out there, and then people that I haven’t seen for years, just because they’re not on campus any more or they only come during student break times, that kind of thing. We have people I know that come from even out of town. It’s a really big event. I know there’s tens of thousands of people that show up to this thing depending on the weather, how that works out. [Taste is] a good mix. » buzz: What do you think the community gets out of being a part of the Taste?
MM: You know, it’s really neat. Every year, there are some different restaurants and things out there. They have stuff for the kids, like they’ve brought inflatables and things like that out there. It’s a nice time for families to get out there. They have a lot of bands that play out there, which is really cool. As far as restaurants and that go, which is my concern obviously, there’s just a good sampling of people from all over the community. I don’t know exactly how many vendors they have, usually 20 or 30, selling just a wide variety so you can go around and try different things. If the weather is good, people can eat at one time of day, go out and watch some bands play, or do some other things, and then go back and eat dinner. It’s pretty neat the way they have it set up. I really like it. It’s the only big event I do, festival-wise. » buzz: What does your business get out of being part of the Taste? MM: I think you get a lot of recognition from the community. And we have been one of the longstanding vendors out there, which kind of helps us. We have a real good rapport with the Champaign Park District, with the Champaign-Urbana Public Health Department. They know we know what we are doing out there, which is really great. I would give out just more samples if there was a chance to market things. With being on campus though, and it’s the only store that I have, for me it’s not a question of how to reach the community as I would like it to be. It’s neat because people from outside of the campus area can come and eat at the Taste and have our stuff without having to worry about parking on campus and headaches, that kind of thing. » buzz: What is your favorite part of the event? MM: Best thing for me, honestly, it kind of corresponds to what I do here. It’s kind of just like today was. I had a couple people that have been here, and then moved away and came back. That’s probably one of the greatest things for me is alumni that come

back to see that we’re still here. They know me from having come here when they were a student maybe, or they worked around the campus area. It’s kind of the same thing for the Taste, I have a lot of people come up and I get a chance to chat with people that I haven’t seen in a long time that are still in the community, but they don’t work on campus anymore, or they are just around town and they don’t get to campus very often. We get a chance to reacquaint ourselves and get a chance to chat with people around the Champaign-Urbana area.
CU Sound off
by Rebecca Halleck
What are you most looking forward to doing in Champaign-Urbana this summer? Summer is by far the most active of all the seasons. As the cold weather is quickly forgotten, Champaign-Urbana community members look forward to doing things they miss out on during
the frigid months. There’s a whole world waiting outside offices and classrooms now that winter coats and scarves seem entirely unnecessary. buzz asked what a few people from CU were most
looking forward to this summer. Some want to lounge by the pool, others want to sleep, but some want a little more from their summers.
“I’m most excited about summer music festivals, especially Pitchfork in July.”
“The ARC pool is pretty nice, anything that isn’t going to class.”
“The summer season at the Station Theatre and probably outside at the Research Park. Oh, and the great live music in the Beer Garden at Mike ‘n’ Molly’s.”
“To go out to Brothers.”

Meow. Meow. Mao.
more taste, less waste Manage your waste at this year’s Taste of Champaign by Eli Chen In spite of how much we enjoy festivals, crowded events certainly guarantee a horrifying downside: copious amounts of waste in the form of plastic cups, styrofoam containers, soda cans and wadded-up napkins. The combination of a lot of food and a lot of people has the potential to lead to a lot of waste, but there are measures that can be taken against waste. Concerned festivalgoers are not alone; the Champaign Park District has taken on the initiative to be less wasteful and more eco-friendly for this year’s Taste of CU.
“We wanted to be more responsible and environmentally friendly,” says Auteberry. “Especially with the recycling efforts, we want to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in the landfill.” According to Laura Auteberry, the park district’s marketing and development director, there will be many opportunities for festival attendees to have fun at the event while simultaneously being environmentally responsible. “This year, one of the things we are doing is allowing people to recycle their festival maps on their way out,” says Auteberry. “We also had the maps printed on recycled paper.” Recycling bins will also be liberally placed throughout the festival to allow people to dispose of their garbage responsibly. Additionally, in hopes of alleviating traffic, the festival will provide plenty of bike corrals to encourage people to bike to the Taste. “We wanted to be more responsible and environmentally friendly,” says Auteberry. “Especially with the recycling efforts, we want to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in the landfill.” Making the Taste of CU eco-friendly doesn’t just stop with the park district’s efforts: minimizing waste comes down to you, festival attendee. For example, instead of depending on water bottle vendors, bring your own reusable water bottle. Napkins might be recyclable, but consider bringing along your own cloth napkin or real silverware to keep trash to a minimum. While carpooling with your friends is responsible, planning a group bike trip down to the Taste definitely scores high green points and free beverages! Taste of Champaign will give a free drink coupon to bicyclists that can be redeemed at any Pepsi tent. So when you head for the Taste of CU this weekend, make it a note to not only have a good time, but also to share in the effort to give back to Mother Earth.
