Kudos to Forest Park for a great event.

We had a wonderful time there; that is how a "rib fest" should be implemented!  Multiple rib vendors (21?), many just locals using their own recipes and styles of cooking.  Cool 60s hippie band (The New Invaders) was playing when I was there - lots of people getting into it.  The Naperville ribfarce has been reduced to only traveling national festival companies and focuses only on the bands.

I think I sampled about 14 different vendors (each split with my partner) before I was "ribbed out."  My favs were the Beale St. booth for the tenderness, All Night Smokers out of Westmont for their flavor, and Crazy Creole Cookin' from Chicago. Unfortunately I didn't sample "Forest Park Ribs" or "Smokechester," which were obviously closer to home.  The Chase's Gourmet Root Beer was fantastic as well.



Good crowd, met some really nice folks.
Great job.

I was out of town so missed Rib Fest. I have always enjoyed it.

We love The New Invaders. The folks in that band are all really nice guys and gals. Sorry to have missed The Ides as well. Oh well, maybe next year.

No variety vs. 21 vendors, most with non-sweet -  Boo. 



Lots of "non-sweet" stuff there as well, much better than the overrated garbage from non-participant Robinson.

I haven't tried much cause I don't cook or grill, but my recent fav was called "Sticky Fingers" that a friend gave me.  Probably a li'l sweet for my preference, but was a thinner type.


I was disappointed with Robinson's because they did not participate in the contest.  They had their own separate booth selling half and full slabs only.  They STILL hang on to their 1982 win in Mike Royko's rib fest; probably afraid of losing all subsequent contest, lol.

heck, no wonder you're so well educated on local fare.
you're also an expert on chgoland streets/geography so i think you must be a state cop :)

A consummate locavore. Our Arnie's every bit the artist his namesake was. No way could he conform to the state's standards of behavior.

With slight prodding he may even treat us to a review of the Rt. 66 festival.

I didn't bother due to the rain.  Rt. 66 only goes till 4p, and by the time it cleared in the afternoon we were starving. 


to all you bloodsuckers who attended ribfest
Bloodsuckers?







ps. Was this not an "event"?  That's why I posted where I did under "Events."

A vein attempt at humor?<g><sic>

It WAS an event prior to Saturday. Now it's a discussion about an event? Subtle perhaps, but distinctly different.

I was surprised it wasn't announced beforehand. I understand, I guess, considering prevailing attitudes toward FoPa Forums, but as I've said before this is a user driven place. If you don't like the tone or topics, feel free to make improvements. If there is an event announced here, who knows, it might go viral. The worst that might happen is that somebody who wasn't going to go anyway will say something mean and stupid. Goes with the territory.

I know Just a Silly Idea to Save the Village an Extra day of Extra Cops/Fire department/ The Great Clean up Guys form Streets and Sanitation,  But What Do I know.. BCB...

I wish Ribfest was held monthly.  Or weekly, like cruise nights. 

FP has an Oktoberfest? 

Berwyn's is this weekend, Friday & Saturday.  Great food & entertainment lineups this year.

Just FYI , the RibFest is run by the Village,,,,,

The Octoberfest is run by the Church.
Totally separate.

OctFest hasn't always been Church based. At one point it was the main village run special event. Times change. Now in place of one major event there are several.

We can't fix sewers, but we sure can throw parties.

Octoberfest has never been a village event. It has always been run by the Harlem German Choir, the group has gotten very small but they do participate in the event with St. B's. So no it hasn't always been church based but it was never run by the village. Thats a fact.

Splitting hairs? Mannenchor and Damenchor's presentation of FoPa's Octoberfest would have been impossible without the complete cooperation and underwriting of the Village government. It was a different era. Naming rights weren't exploited by pols, there were active service and community groups that each took on a share of the load. But the bottom line was the village provided the most in-kind and misc. funding.

Splitting hairs (lol) I am sure the village sponsored it in some way, but it was not a village run event.
