Get Your Grill On at the Windy City Smokeout

Summertime Chi just doesn’t feel right without a good grill-out.

You’re in luck because one of the tastiest events of the season has yet to pass. Don’t miss out on the Windy City Smokeout in downtown Chicago at 560 W Grand Ave this weekend.

From July 13–15, you can taste some of the most delicious BBQ in the city from over 20 different grillmasters, get your drank on with 25 beer vendors, and jam out to country artists like Brett Young and Brett Eldredge (I wonder if they did that on purpose). There’s also plenty of non-BBQ options from vendors like NYC’s Big Gay Ice Cream and a local favorite, Three Dots and a Dash. The whole experience is bound to be sensational.

The best part is that the event is completely cashless. Gone are the days of getting charged a “small” fee for using a generic ATM on the festival grounds. When you purchase general admission to the Windy City Smokeout, they’ll send you a wristband onto which you can load cash to pay for food and drinks at the festival. This way, you can leave your credit or debit card behind without a worry in the world.

In addition to taking a stroll down the main street during the Smokeout, you can register for extra events, such as Pearl’s Southern Comfort Crawfish Boil, a Honky Tonk BBQ Brunch, Casamigos Tequila Mixology Class, and so much more to make your experience one for the books.

Get those taste buds ready for a weekend to remember!
