Story Behind the Painting

The Taste of Chicago is the city's biggest summer event attracting huge crowds for nearly 2 weeks in July. Many of Chicago's signature food stands and restaurants are represented such as Harold's Chicken, Robinson's Ribs, Eli's Cheesecake, Lou Malnati's pizza, and the Billy Goat Tavern. Several local and national bands also participate in the free Grant Park outdoor concerts. I think I personally enjoyed Stevie Wonder the best so far. In 2009, we had the Counting Crows.
