The annual get-together in Millennium Park is out of the question, so the city’s premier gathering of food and beverage enthusiasts goes online with virtual and interactive demos and discussions that enable guests to get in on the action while at home.
Bobby’s Bike Hike
A tour that’s ideal for visitors to the city who want to sample the triumvirate of Chicago food favorites—Italian beef, deep dish, Chicago dogs—and get in socially distanced exercise while tooling around the city on bikes.
Beerfest on the Beach
On September 25, one of Chicago’s few festivals that haven’t been canceled will be at the Shore Club on North Avenue Beach: drink beer, breathe fresh air, keep your distance from other humans, a good time.
