What it is: If you like pina coladas, and riding home on a train, if you love eating hot dogs and you have half a brain – then head to the North Side Summerfest! They’ve got the best hot dogs Chicago has to offer as well live bands like Sixteen Candles and the Freddy Jones Band. Plus there’s a hot dog eating contest you can
lose and get really sick enter at 2pm on Sunday. So come celebrate the summer in North Center, even if you’re not into yoga (alright, we’ll stop the Rupert Holmes references now).
