I just found out about Chicago’s Ribfest on June 12-14th. I will most definitely be going to this. Not only do they have 65,000 pounds of meat (!!!),  they have a lot of bands, including Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin (from Springfield, MO), who I know personally (yeah, I dropped that).  Their music is delightful.  The other band I recognized was the very talented and original Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s (a Chicago band).

Anyone ever been?

unrelated:  I got a beer of the month club subscription as a gift from my dentist for graduation.  awesome.  I promise I will update my beer going-ons soon, I have much to write about.
