If you, like tens of thousands of other music-minded folk, are headed down to Grant Park for Lollapalooza this weekend, get ready for great things. The concert lineup’s awesome, of course, but the concert’s Chow-Town food area is where you’ll find the lobster corndogs, portobello satay, and black pepper-truffle-parmesan popcorn that graham elliot is serving at their concession stand. Besides chef GEB’s haute festival picks, there’ll be brats from Paulina Meat Market, boneless rib sandwiches from Robinson’s #1 Ribs, Cans will be serving a deep-fried twinkie, Goose Island Brew Pub’s serving up beer-fried pork sliders, and there’s intriguing Celtic corn-on-the-cob from O’Brien’s, plus more things-on-a-stick than you can, well, shake a stick at. Keep reading for the full list.
