So you didn't get tickets to Lollapalooza. It wasn't even a "you snooze, you lose," situation -- those passes sold out in minutes, not hours. Thankfully, Chicago has so much more to offer in the way of live music festivals.
Wicker Park Fest is Wicker Park and Bucktown district's biggest annual event featuring local and national musical acts. This all takes place in the heart of Chicago's trendiest neighborhood, so my street style radar was on high alert.
Here are two great things to do in Chicago this weekend: The Wicker Park Fest, featuring local artists, local bands and local restaurants, and Taste of Lincoln Avenue, where you can see 40 bands on five stages.
