Great American Lobster Fest

For the fifth year in a row, the Midwest's largest seafood festival returns for a Labor Day weekend's worth of live music, libations and lobster -- lots and lots of lobster, flown in fresh from the cold waters of the East Coast. Crustacean lovers and land-lubbers alike will have plenty of choices for chowing down, including non-seafood items, sweets and vegetarian dishes to enjoy, plus family-friendly games and activities, unique arts & crafts shopping and music from local bands and DJs. The Lobster Meal ticket includes one full lobster (approximately 1.25 pounds) or lobster roll, served with corn on the cob, potatoes, a dinner roll, fresh cut lemons and melted butter, along with reserved seating in the Aon Grand Ballroom. The VIP Experience adds on four drink vouchers, plus access to the Peroni VIP Lounge, with special tastings and bocce ball. So bring the whole family, a date or just a bib and a ginormous appetite to Chicago's legendary Navy Pier.
