2015 Chicago Summer Events – Food Edition Part 2

Model Running down runway at Do Division Fashion Show

A little more Chicago food for your thoughts. Today we continue our 2015 Chicago Summer Events series with part 2 of our food edition. Last week we covered more of the popular food events hosted around town this summer Read Part 1 Here, but in this series we’re going to dig  a little deeper and get more diverse. Chicago is a melting pot of cultures and as a result we get cuisines from all around the world. We encourage visitors of our city to check out all the different neighborhoods and experience all the unique cultures they have to offer.

If you would like to book a room to stay for any of the events listed below, you can book a room here.

About: Try some authentic Mexican food at taste of Mexico.

Sample some of the best burgers Chicago has to offer. Roscoe Village Burger Fest will host a number of musical guests and offer some great local brews. Burgers and beer in July, can’t get much better than that.

Whiskey Wine and Swine Pig Roast
When: June 20th 2015

Where: Montrose Beach,

200 W Montrose Dr, Chicago, IL

Website: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/whiskey-wine-and-swine-pig-roast-tasting-montrose-beach-chicago-tickets-16240599069

About: This event can be considered more of a beverage event than a food event, but we feel it’s a great lead in to our next post in this series, which is drinking events! This event is particularly cool because it takes place on a beach. Montrose beach is somewhat of a hidden gem. Most tourists will visit north Avenue or Ohio beach, but head a little farther north and Montrose Beach is right there. It’s one of the few times it’s legal to drink on the beach, might as well take advantage of that with a side of bacon.
