Summer in the city

It's still early in the summer, but it's already roasting hot here in Chicago. One of my favorite things to do during the summer is hit up festivals. There are so many that take place every weekend. I have already gone to several and it's still early in the season. The other week we went to Mole Fest in Pilsen and ate a lot of Mexican food. Last weekend we went to Maifest which is my absolute favorite. They always have fun German music, giant beers and yummy sausages. What's not to love? We had a great time dancing with cute German grandpas and swindling the bartenders as usual. This weekend the girls went to the Wells Street Art Fair. We missed all the art but we were able to walk around and hear some music and people watch. Yesterday Rob and I met Tara and her mom at Ribfest which is just up the street from us. We tried short rib sandwiches, bacon fat doughnuts and fries. It's so close to our apartment so we'll have to make it an annual trip. This weekend is Tara's birthday and we're going to enjoy the Movies in the Park by seeing Sandlot at Oz Park and who knows what other fests we'll enjoy in the coming weeks. Even though it's a wee bit hot for me, I love summer in Chicago!
