If you answered mostly A:
Giiiiiirl, you are just the cutest. Kim said what? She’s a bitch. I’m not inviting her Taylor Swift this weekend. TTYL!
If you answered mostly B:
The Chicago Craft Beer Festival is for you. What makes it a festival and not just day-drinking in a parish parking lot? It’s summer! Everything is a festival! Last week, I took the CTA Festival to my Work Festival and then grabbed a bite at the The Bar Across the Street Festival.
If you answered mostly C:
Pull up those cut off shorts, hydrate and head to Pitchfork. It’s time to make some lifelong friends for the day while you get vomit between your sandaled toes. Go for the music; stay for the crowds standing in between you and the music.
