City of Chicago to start charging $25 for seats at Taste of Chicago concerts but will hand out free tickets to poor inner city residents


Taste of Chicago patrons will pay $25 each for 3,000 concert seats at the Petrillo Music Shell that have long been free, thanks to the latest change aimed at stopping the bleeding at Chicago’s premier summer festival.

Rejecting his predecessor’s view that Taste of Chicago “always be free,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel introduced an ordinance at Wednesday’s City Council meeting that would set the stage for the first-ever fee for Taste concerts at Petrillo to raise $375,000 that would help offset $2.7 million in festival losses over the last three years.

Leave it to a jew to charge for a "free" event. If these assclowns thought that they were losing money before, charging people $25 a ticket is gonna almost guarentee a lot of empty seats. The only way to make this event an attractive destination to people with disposable entertainment income is to eliminate the fear of violence. Since you can't keep the darkies away, violence and mayhem will reign. I used to drive from Mich every year for the Taste. My friends and I would stay all weekend and blissfully spend our money. No more. If I wanted to deal with foul smelling, trash talking, violent and disrespectful darkies, I could save a lot of gas money and go to downtown De-toilet. At the rate that Chicongo is collapsing into a third world mudman hellhole, it won't be long before your downtown looks like De-toilet.

Sign me up! I really want to come to Chicago, pay to get to the event, and be surrounded by inner city coons waiting to take donations from me.

I'll make sure to stop by the ATM and get some extra cash.

Taxpayers not on the hook sounds like the new transparency. My tax dollars go towards that park and bandshell. Fuck that Jew and his demands to pay for a seat. Shitbird kike.

Charging a fee for a concert seat will not affect the amount of SHITHEADS walking around the Taste. They will still be all over the place screwing things up for the rest of the city. Rahm will probably give the SHITHEADS free tickets for being on the honor roll anyway.

"offset $2.7 million in festival losses"???

Keep the niggers out, bagel breath! Money flows where the darkies cannot go. The opposite it true.

So if you are on LINK you get in for free, correct? Yeah, that is a good investment.
