Emanuel calls shorter Taste of Chicago ‘one of the best-attended we ever had’ By charging admission we kept the Ghetto wildebeest out of the fest!

Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Monday proclaimed his shrunken and revamped Taste of Chicago a success and said he plans to do more of the same next year.

By cutting the Taste in half, bumping it to mid-July and charging for concert seats at the Petrillo bandshell, Emanuel led some people to fear he was trying to kill the premier summer festival that had become a drain on Chicago taxpayers.

Those fears turned out to be unfounded.

Obama voters are used to getting things for free. This must have been an unwelcome surprise for them.

Yes, Rahm you are clever. Negroes never pay for anything unless it's Harold's #35' 2 pieces for $1.00!

I cannot tell you how much I hate taking the Metra during the Taste of Chicago; it is outrageous how these thugs behave.

It is unfortunate that, although regular police officers have directions to stop and question thugs, they do not have the support of their superiors when they do.

Frankly, as I have this year, I try to avoid going downtown during the Taste of Chicago.

If anyone believes a word coming out of the Jews mouth then I have some nice swamp land down in Florida next to the Walmart I want to sell you. When you have to start charging for the entertainment then this Taste bullshit is history. People will pay for the Lappaloosaa because they get first rate entertainment and IT IS FENCED IN TO KEEP THE ASSHOLES OUT! You wanna get in...THEN YOU MUST PAY!

Taste of chicago was a hit because chief hillbilly walrus whale ass devoured 100's of lbs. of food. He ate truck loads of everything in sight and went back for seconds and thirds

Most vendors say the Taste was good for them and they made money.

I am happy Chicago had some success. Maybe a turn around for this city? Fingers crossed the second part of summer has less shootings.

10k of the 15k concert tickets sold. Not a total win there.

Asian Carp? Okay... Fuck that! I am a vegan anyway.

Trib says Win:

Others say it was a push or fail:

Others stealing our thunder Mr Mayor?

"Other food festivals are more upscale. Los Angeles, Austin and Atlanta hosted inaugural food and wine festivals in 2011 and 2012. Admission ranges from $75 to more than $1000, but includes free food and wine tasting, classes, seminars and celebrity chefs."
