  • Andersonville
    A glass of cold beer in one hand, a plate of food balanced in the other. The only reason to disrupt such a perfect combination might be to dance to the live band performing just a few feet away. That's the basic Midsommarfest formula, and every summer, nearly 50,000 people flock to Andersonville for this celebration of all things local. Going strong for the past half century, the fest takes over Clark Street from Foster to Catalpa with booths for food and crafts as well as five different stages. These showcase eclectic entertainments that truly reflect the neighborhood's charm: not just cover bands (though there are those, too), but a pet parade, Swedish music, dance troupes, and sets from blues, roots, and funk bands. All the fun also helps the neighborhood, and not just because stoplights are powered by laughter; proceeds go to benefit community causes.

  • Windy City RibFest
    It might be called the Windy City RibFest, but the bosses of sauce who tend to the festival's barbecue come from all over the world. For five years running, these award-winning ribbers have been filling fest-goers with sauce-slathered ribs, frothy brews, and traditional sides, such as baked beans, coleslaw, and another helping of ribs. Tucked between the Aragon Ballroom, the Riviera, and the Green Mill, this year's RibFest welcomes local luminaries such as grillmaster Tom Ferguson, whose Chicago BBQ Company is a perennial favorite at the fest. Out-of-towners are also well-represented. Joey Sutphen of Texas Thunder BBQ whips up batches of his family's nationally known ribs, and Paul MacKay from Aussom Aussie Australian BBQ shares the piquant flavors of his native Sydney. As chefs from Porky Chick's and Famous Daves sizzle up their trademark slabs, local bands such as the funked out vocalists of Suénalo, the Top 40 cover band Hello Weekend, and Dave Matthews–mimickers Trippin' Billies keep crowds sufficiently entertained. Groupon Guide to Chicago Groupon Guide rounded up some of the best barbecue joints in the country. See who made the cut.

  • Riviera Theatre
    The Riviera Theatre has been a major part of Chicago since 1917. In that year, the Riviera was built – in what is now the Uptown theater district – as a movie theater.

A brief look at their history and you’ll see that the Riviera has played host to the world’s most famous performers and has no intention of letting that reputation slide. The Riviera Theatre is also available for special-event rentals such as rock concerts, corporate parties, proms, and much more.
