By the time Labor Day rolls around, I’m usually pretty much streetfaired out. But, with the baby and with the way it’s been particularly hot this summer, we haven’t been to as many streetfairs. So, when my in-laws came to visit over the weekend and we had some relatively balmy weather on the forecast, we decided to head to a streetfair that was just down the street from our place.

My wife and I have been going to this farmers’ market for years, and for years, it’s been very literally a farmers’ market: a place to buy produce. This year, it seems to have gotten much better – particularly because there’s more things that I can eat while I am there.
This Saturday, I took my wife and daughter to Pizzafest. Pizza being one of my favorite foods, and street fairs being one of my favorite activities, I thought this event would be friggin awesome. I was friggin wrong.
It’s December. And this year, that means three things: (1) this blog has been around for about a year, (2) my wife is in her 8th month of pregnancy, and (3) Christkindlmarket Chicago.
Like the Lakeview Mayfest that starts the streetfair season, my wife and I always make a point to attend the Guinness Oysterfest that marks the end of the season. Back when we first started going to this, it was held somewhere in Wicker Park. These days, it’s in Roscoe Village, and the music has certainly changed accordingly.
