But enough of the pleasantries. Here’s what you should eat.
Chefs were challenged to team up with IndyCar drivers to create cocktail fare. That means albondigas, or spicy Spanish meatballs, by Delicia for driver Gabby Chaves, while Frenchman Sébastien Bourdais presents fashionable treats by Chocolate for the Spirit, and shepherd’s pie skewers by Circle City Soups are a nod to driver Jack Harvey’s homeland of England. Dozens of other “driver-inspired” small bites will highlight the event. If this year’s Rev is anything like those in the past, guests will be so overwhelmed with dining and drink options, they may absentmindedly wander past the boxes of Jack’s Donuts handed out at the exits. You may get a caution flag for that.
