The Deals Magazine street team checked out the Chicago Ribfest and the Aurora Green Fest over the weekend to celebrate the great summer weather and to get their hands on some delectable ribs from Chicago’s top barbecue joints.
The weekend-long Chicago Ribfest kicked off on Friday, drawing record crowds with live music, cold beer and more than 50,000 pounds of ribs. This year’s fest boasted a variety of food options from 36 vendors, from PitchFork and Corner 41 Bar & Grill to Black Dog Gelato. Our street team met all the carnivores who came out for the event, and they shared our hyper-local grub deals with the hungry masses.
On Saturday, we showed our green side at the Aurora Green Fest. This sustainability event featured a variety of eco-friendly vendors like ReStore, Green Home Care Inc., and Somewhat Organic Soap, as well as kids’ activities, speakers, art projects and a solar-powered concert. Our promoters got the chance to meet tons of conscientious consumers and spread the word about our green initiatives.
Thanks to everyone who made it out to the Chicago Ribfest and the Aurora Green Fest. Look for us at your town’s next event!
