32nd Annual Taste of Chicago

July 12 – 15, 2012
11am - 9pm
100 E. Congress Pkwy., Chicago

Alright, the Taste is back… love it or hate it. But it’s abbreviated this year, for those of you who care.

The 32nd annual Taste of Chicago is here in Grant Park. And this time, it features performers and food that surpass those of previous years. The event is completely free to attend, but if you’re looking to sample some goodies, food and drink tickets are $8 for a strip of 12.

Restaurants featured include Abbey Pub, Bacino’s Pizza, Billy Goat Inn, Lao Sze Chuan, Iyanze and many more! You probably won’t even have enough time to sample all the good food!

And if you’re looking to REALLY get the best of the best, you can purchase a $40 pre-paid ticket to enjoy a three-course meal from a noted chef each day. Just a few people you might’ve heard of: Tony Mantuano of Spiaggia, Graham Elliot of g.e.b., Stephanie Izard of Girl and The Goat and Carrie Nahabedian of NAHA (and more)!

If you’re just interested in the concerts, look out for headliners Jennifer Hudson, Death Cab for Cutie, Chaka Khan and Dierks Bentley. And the best part is the lawn is absolutely free for you to enjoy music while chowing down on glorious food.
