Windy City Ribfest

This summer I've been working for a staffing agency at festivals throughout Chicago for a little extra cash.  Although it's not a glamorous job (I'm on my feet the entire day doing mundane tasks like asking for donations and stamping hands), it does allow me to people watch and enjoy festivals that I have never been to let alone heard of.

This weekend took me to ribfest in the uptown neighborhood which featured cooking from regional chefs to ones as far as Australia.  I have been craving good barbecue for quite a while so, naturally, I jumped at the opportunity to go.  Nothing spells summer like BBQ, right?  So after my shift I met up with a friend to taste some food.

**The Verdict:  Although I didn't try everything there,  I would have to say my favorite was Big Boned BBQ from Chatanooga, TN.  The meat fell off the bone very well and had a nice smokey flavor.  If you're ever around the area you should definitely check it out.

The Beginning

It's two thirty in the morning on a night in the middle of hopefully the last "unadult" summer I'll ever have.  I feel like I'm in transition in my life.  So I decided to start this blog more for me.  But if you're reading and continue to read, I hope that you find what I'll share with you at least a little bit interesting.

Let me introduce myself.  My name is Jae.  It's pronounced like the letter, "J".  I guess you'll learn more as we go.
