Returning this year with citywide, socially distanced events, including Hamburger Hop and Go Gourmet, Chicago Gourmet will also host smaller gatherings, like the much-lauded Grand Cru, split into sections.
Roscoe Village Burger Fest
Houndstooth, Fatso’s and other Roscoe Village favorites will put their best burger forward to crowds that by their presence prove that however much Chicagoans love their hot dogs, the hamburger is right up there.
Green City Chef Barbecue
Celebrating twenty years of local chefs serving outstanding Q (and lots of other foods), paired with local beers and other beverages, this is the food orgy of the summer, and it gives participants a chance to visit with some of Chicago’s finest chefs.
Wine And Tacos 2
(Wild Blossom Meadery)
You will never guess what food and drink will be paired at this event. Cigars welcome!
Run for Beer
(Whiner Beer Company)
An untimed fun run, with an ice-cold one waiting at the finish line. In addition to free beer, there’s swag, door prizes and the good feeling that comes from supporting local nonprofits.
