What's cookin', good lookin'? Find out at Cube Marketplace's Downtown Pop-Up Shop, where the cool kids go to learn how to prepare summer sweet corn; where to find boutique Italian wines; how to plant a vegetable garden; and what to do with homegrown herbs. On Cube's executive chef Erin Eastland and pastry chef Jun Tan's menu: corn chowder, corn pudding and sweet corn panna cotta with blueberries. (BYOK: Bring Your Own Knife.)
