I had a blast at this past Lollapalooza at Grant Park in Chicago. Lollapalooza is an annual music festival founded by Perry Farrell of Jane’s Addiction. This year, it was held from Friday Aug 6th to Sunday Aug 8th. I only attended the first day, but I had an awesome time even though the weather was not too friendly. In addition to the musical performances, there’s were also art installations around the park, a Playstation tent, and an autograph booth. There was an Art Market, with craft stands and vendors selling green eco-friendly goods. I made sure to stop by the merchandise stands to pick up some Lollapalooza memorabilia T-shirts and artist T-shirt. It was also a good way to keep warm in the pouring rain.
Here’s a short recap of the food and beverages I came across at Lollapalooza.
For lunch, we wandered to Lederhosen’s Biergarten, a beer garden with shaded picnic tables serving up ice cold beers like Becks, Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, and others. There, we saw HAUS OF SAUSAGE. I ordered the Bratwurst and Saurkraut with Chips. Very tasty!
For beverage, I grabbed a 24 fl.oz. can of Bud Light Lime.
For dinner, we walked towards the busy Chow-Town. Many attendants crowded around this row of food stands serving a collection of Chicago’s grub, like Adobo Grill, Buona Beef, Goose Island Brewpub, the creative cuisine from Graham Elliot, and more.
After looking at the choices of foods and studying the long lines, we approached CONNIE’S PIZZA for a savory Deep-dish Sausage Pizza. Huge chunks of sausage and a delicious crust!
I think it was the bottle label that caught my attention to SWEET LEAF TEA. It was the friendly granny picture, I’m sure. It was the first time I saw Sweet Leaf Tea. I picked up a 20 oz bottle of their Half and Half Lemonade Tea. That’s half black tea and half lemonade. Delightful!
The rainy and breezy weather was quite tough to handle, but I had an awesome time anyway. Eating some satisfying fast food grub while trying to dodge the rain was an adventure. Sausage was the theme ingredient for the day. I made my first encounter with Sweet Leaf Tea. That was my day one at Chicago.
