Chicago Rib Fest
  • Ribfest Chicago
Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:

Live music, beer, and an eating contest, all in honor of everyone's favorite pig part that isn't bacon. Ribfest Chicago, which takes place on Lincoln at Irving Park and Damen, kicks off today and continues through the weekend.

The Chicago League of Lady Arm Wrestlers gathers for a sweet 16 tourney at the Logan Square Auditorium. Vallery Dolls, Black Laces, and the Lucky Shiners provide musical accompaniment. All proceeds go to the Community Counseling Centers of Chicago.

Grant Park hosts the Chicago Blues Festival all day, but don't be fooled into thinking the blues stop when the sun goes down. At night, Reggie's honors the Koko Taylor Celebrity Aid Foundation with the performance Chicago Women in the Blues Festival.
