Chicago’s First Nacho Fest

(from chicagoist)

Bacon. Donuts. Ramen. Poutine. Vegan Food. Whiskey. Just when you think there is literally a fest for ever single food and drink item out there, some creative organizer tosses out a new one: Nachofest, coming to Chicago on June 25.

This cheesy festival is from the same folks who brought you Donut Fest and Poutine Fest, which were both hits, so it’s pretty obvious that this is going to be great. For $35, guests get three hours of nachos, two beers and a souvenir cup. If you’re willing to shell out a little more (and I’ll tell you from long experience at these fests: you should) for $50, you get a crowd-less first hour and four beers. Totally worth it.

Participating restauants include: Hub 51, Whisk, Half Acre, Son of a Butcher, Porkchop, The Fifty/50, Gaslight and Texican. The event itself will be at Chop Shop. (MORE HERE)
