Windy City SmokeOut Ticket Promo

A fantastic summer can be summer-ized (see what we did there) by the Three Bs: Bands, BBQ, and Beverages. Even vegetarians are tantalized by the smell of the grill when they’re getting down on a veggie burger. So where can you get a hearty helping of all 3? The Windy City Smokeout, of course, July 15-July 17. Hosted by Bub City and Academy of Country Music Award winner, Joe’s Bar, this fest promises to be anything but basic. Don’t like the ‘Que? No problemo. Hob Nob with other non ‘Que carousers at famed spots like Three Dots and a Dash, Drago’s Seafood or The Salsa Truck. Or do what we do, and eat up all the sides :).
