Pig candy and more treats at Lollapolooza
If you’re looking to get porked at Lollapalooza this year, you’re in luck—the new Chow Town offerings include Pork & Mindy’s with pig candy candied bacon and The Purple Pig with gyros, along with seven other new guys. The 35-restaurant lineup of elevated local eats was curated again this year by local wonder and former “MasterChef ” judge Graham Elliot, who serves a mean lobster corndog at the Graham Elliot Bistro stand.
Other newbies includes Momofuku Milk Bar bakery with slices of crack pie; West Loop’s Mad Social with chicken and waffles; Greenridge Farm; Harold’s Chicken; Kilwins Chocolates, Fudge & Ice Cream; La Mexicana; and Bella Bacinos (returning from 2013). Back again this year are Chubby Wieners, Wow Bao, County Barbeque, M Burger and more. See the full list below.
While the farmers market isn’t returning, the fest will include one-stop shop bodegas with quick snacks, such as granola bars, trail mix and fresh fruit, and drug store necessities like ponchos, bandages and sunblock, located on Columbus Drive at the Jackson Drive and Balbo Avenue intersections.
Lollapalooza expanded to four days this year with headliners Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, LCD Soundsystem and J. Cole.
