Chicago Cubs

The weekend is finally here, and it's a historic one to say the least! With a Chicago Cubs victory to make them the World Series champions, all are celebrating this historic win! Friday's parade kicks off the fun, but it doesn't stop there. Chicago hosts The Rugby Weekend — an international 2-day matchup at Soldier Field/Toyota Park — plus we have mega art fair SOFA Chicago at Navy Pier, Mac & Cheese Fest, Beerhoptacular and much more. Chicago is the place to be!  

Mac and Cheese Fest

What's ooey and gooey and cheesy all over? Chicago's newest food-themed festival! Mac & Cheese Fest makes its debut at UIC Forum this weekend and Chicagoans are as happy as the smiling elbow noodle in the festival's logo. More than fifty local chefs and restaurants will come together on Saturday to pump out their best cheese and noodle dishes. Tickets ($50 in advance) allow you to same as many and as much of the macaroni as you can, but, before you fill up, we recommend making sure you get your tastebuds on these samplings.
