Martha Bayne is the bomb; you can tell just by her initials – MB, which just happen to stand for “Mothereffing Bomb.”

Currently, she serves as associate managing editor of Plate, a magazine for professional chefs, is a company member with Chicago’s Theater Oobleck, and tends bar at the Hideout on Wednesday afternoons.
