Musings of a Museum Fanatic: Getting Ready for Windy City Smokeout [Promo Code]


Getting Ready for Windy City Smokeout [Promo Code]

**I've received complimentary tickets in exchange for promoting this event, all opinions are my own & I am super stoked to be going!**

Summer in Chicago means it's festival time. There are festivals for every single theme you can imagine. We've got food fests, art fest and good old neighborhood fests. So naturally I would put something fest related on my 101 list. I realized that I tend to avoid the really large iconic fests because they can be ridiculous and a total crush. With that being said I've totally missed out on some iconic Chicago experiences though! We all know I can't have that.

Of course I'm jumping at the opportunity to get a chance to go to the Midwest's foremost BBQ and country festival, Windy City Smokeout July 15-17. I invited my best friend Becky along to experience Windy City Smokeout because she is a huge country fan. The line up for the weekend is definitely a country fans dream. There are some amazing acts scheduled.With names like Maren Morris, Old Dominion, Chase Rice, Billy Currington, Phil Vassar, and tons more you know it's a good weekend for some country. Not gonna lie ​2004 me was super excited to see Big & Rich with special guest Cowboy Troy on the schedule. I love me some "Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy."

With all that being said I'm not going to lie I am not a big country fan. Becky knows this and she totally asked me what in the world I was doing going to a festival with all country act. I had three words for her "ummm ... BBQ hello!". I absolutely love barbecue.

So yeah Windy City smokeout has definitely been on my radar for a while now because of just the sheer volume of amazing BBQ that will be there, don't believe me look at the awesome menusThe culinary lineup features a amazing group of pitmasters including, world champion pit master and television star Myron Mixon, the St. Louis staple Pappy’s Smokehouse, Tennessee’s Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint. Don't worry though Chicago is definitely representing with our own top joints, Lillie’s Q, Bub City, Chicago Q and Smoque.

Not a BBQ fan? Not sure how you couldn't be after these mouthwatering images but just in case there are definitely some options for you too. Drago's with their charbroiled oysters, the Lobster Shack brings you some New England favorites and The Salsa Truck has got you covered with some delicious tacos. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of that webpage and take note of the fact that Three Dots & a Dash has tiki drinks! I'm definitely stopping at their booth ... multiple times ...
