May Festivals - Installment 1

May 2013 festivals

American Beer Classic - Here at Ray's Bucktown B&B we like beer.  ok, we love beer.  Although we definitely cannot claim to be knowledgeable of the subtlety of brews, this festival looks like a blast. On Saturday, May 11th, over 10,000 beer lovers will congregate at Soldier Field to appreciate local and major breweries in the Midwest.  What would a day of beer drinking be without a little competition?  You can vote on your favorite on the event's iphone app.  Our manager is pulling for a personal favorite brewery - Dogfish Head.

The 29th annual Belmont-Sheffield Music Festival is coming up on May 25th-26th. This is generally considered the "kickoff" for summer street festivals here, and if this weather continues on it's course we can hope for a balmy 65 degrees!...if we're lucky.

Some of the best local bands and musicians in the midwest will be there and the full lineup can be found here. Arts, crafts and fashion will all be featured at this outdoor event.  It's located right off the belmont Red/Brown/Purple line stop, or you can take the Damen bus north from Ray's and then hop on the Eastbound Belmont bus.

If you aren't looking to be tied down to what's going on on one particular weekend, then throughout the entire month of May, the Chicago Blues Festival takes place in Chicago - click here to see a link of the upcoming blues performers at the Randolph Cafe and other locations.  With acts spread out over several events and venues it's pretty easy to find something that fits your taste.

There is plenty more going on this month don't worry!  But seeing as we here at Ray's are both breakfast cooks and blogging gurus we must continue later.  Here's to not having another 45 degree day for a while!

we hope.
