New International Pavillion at Taste

I think every Chicago resident has a love/hate relationship with Taste of Chicago. I go every three years or so to get my fix of meat on a stick and tourist gawking, but nothing makes me really EXCITED to go. This year, Taste offers an International Pavillion that actually makes me wanna throw elbows with the tube-topped masses. The performance schedule includes Chicago-based Muntu Dance Theatre (African) and Foy School of Irish Dance, as well as real deal Kung Fu artists from the Henan Province of China. You can shop for funky jewlery, textiles, and rare spices while you listen to “swingin’ body music” by Dutch trumpet sensation Saskia Laroo and (probably) eat something on a stick. Actually, the nibbles in this tent are created by top notch Chicago caterer J&L and inspired by the cuisines of Vietnam, Africa, and Mexico. Anyone know where I can buy a halter top and get a mullet cut by Friday?
