One of Chicago's greatest events is almost upon us- the Green City Market Chef BBQ will bring in over 100 of Chicago's best restaurants, showing off their Top Chefs and Mixologists to provide tastes of local, sustainable heirloom produce and heritage meats from Green City Market Farmers.

Chicago Beer Classic

I may be a huge wine guy, but I love my beer, and there is no better event for brews than the Chicago Beer Classic, which takes place tomorrow in Soldier Field, and not only gives you a chance to walk on the field, but also to try out over 50 brews from over 30 local breweries! Try out beers from Half Acre, Finch Beer Co, Pollyanna, Brickstone, Exit Strategy, Bell's, Pipeworks and many more. There are two sessions: 11:30am-2:30pm and 4:30pm-7:30pm. I suggest going VIP for more tastes, access, and 30 extra minutes- worth the splurge. 

If you haven't made plans, grab your tickets here and go!
