Thanks to Kenny for hooking us up with food for "The Finale: Day 2" -- I'm dangerously excited to eat Harolds Chicken tonight! Obviously, if you know me, I'm quite addicted to chicken and it could be because of Harold's. Check it at Lilly's tonight or at 804 W. Washington. Here's the flyer for further information...

Chicago, "The Finale" Announcements...


Chicago, I love you...The Finale 

This entire festival has been a something beyond what I originally intended it being. I'm honored that each artist has been involved in bringing this to life and I'm happy to announce that we will be doing this again next year. With the thirty-days coming to an end, we felt it would only be appropriate to do something large. So here it is - Let's end this festival in the right way with too much art, food, and obviously amazing craft beers. You've brought a  dream to life and now get ready for "The Finale"...More announcements to come.
