  • Why can't I have hair like Littleton Artist/Uptown/Chicago

    I think the final breakdown of how much fest money goes to who varys widely it depends.

    Some fests are entirely DIY by a neighborhood organization, others.......like the obscenely lame Uptown Rib Fest is just a vendor/canned event that cuts a check to the local chamber.

  • They did the same thing for Taste of Randolph last year. It gets bigger every year, and I'm sure this year with the obnoxiousness of Soho Hotel and Parlor Pizza taking over, they'll block off yet more of the streets and basically make the neighborhood inaccessible for the weekend.
