In town this weekend? I have just the ticket for you – The Bash on Wabash is taking place this Saturday and Sunday, September 1 & 2. Here are the main details. I’ll be working, so come on down and say Hola…along with seeing how the South Loop is exploding with fun neighbors, new restaurants and down home good vibes. See you then!
The South Loops’ premier outdoor event, Bash on Wabash, marks its fourth year by honoring New Orleans. The 2007 music line-up will reflect the rich musical heritage of New Orleans, featuring top name national and regional Zydeco, blues and jazz acts.
The Greater South Loop Association hosts this unique event, which showcases Chicago’s hottest, trendiest neighborhood. Just blocks from downtown Chicago, the South Loop, home of Chicago’s Mayor Daley is undergoing a renaissance, and is now a vibrant, culturally rich, diverse yet tightly knit community.
This lively, colorful festival mirrors the South Loops’ vibrancy and diversity offering something for everyone. Bash on Wabash features top name, national music headliners, continuous live music, a wide variety of food choices, including some top area restaurants, beer and wine, upscale arts and crafts, and an elaborate kid’s area with games and rides such as Willie Wonka, Moon Walk and climbing walls.
