The Taste of Chicago opened Wednesday in Grant Park and what better way to kick off Chicago’s free annual food fest than with The Illinois Lottery The Roots Concert.
Petrillo Music Shell was a perfect backdrop for this party by the lake. The day started off real stormy and I thought the concert was going to be a wash. *insert sad face emoji*. The skies cleared up and my blogger boo and guest Keyonda of arealurbanmom were able to have a great time. A little birdie told me that there might be a special guest performing with the opening act so I told her to come early so we could get good seats for the concert. I went to The Illinois Lottery Erykah Badu Concert last year and I know that good seats fill up fast. With Chicago’s own Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment opening for the world famous band The Roots I know the seats would be at a premium. After we secured our place we popped over to the The Illinois Lottery tent. At the Illinois Lottery’s tent we were treated to some amazing food and drinks.
I did some mingling with other Chicago Bloggers and met with some city of the Chicago employees. We talked about memories of coming to the Taste of Chicago from years past. That made me dig up some old pictures of my past Taste of Chicago experience with my family
Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his daughter partied with us.
