WGN-TV's Marcus Leshock at Borinquen Lounge: He's won Emmys, and now he reeks of garlic. by Yak Channel Podcast Network published on 2018-11-05T19:32:31Z This week, I'm joined by super-talented WGN-TV anchor/host/personality Marcus Leshock (a multiple Emmy winner! A WGN Employee of the Month!). Gaby from Borinquen Lounge (3811 N Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60618) jumps in the car with jibaritos that are beyond delicious: Fried plantains, steak, garlic mayo, cheese. They're the best jibaritos in Chicago, because BORINQUEN INVENTED JIBARITOS. Discussed this week: Gaby tells the history of the jibarito, starting with her uncle Peter Figuroa, who invented the sandwich. Marcus's jibarito challenge with a WGN co-worker. Did Marcus ever get tired of seeing himself all over the place when he worked for Metromix? Marcus's make up keeps him at the age of 25. Eating jibaritos in a car: "Messy adds to the experience." WGN-TV's morning show is a dynasty that ranks with the 1990s Bulls. The secret recipe to WGN's morning show success. Marcus's love for roller coasters, and his essential Great America coaster. Marcus talks about his career highlights. What's the one thing that's distinctly "Chicago?" Chicago vs. the suburbs. Going for jibaritos is like going to concerts in Chicago in the 1990s.
