This summer, Lollapalooza is expanding to four days as the iconic festival celebrates its 25th anniversary!
To help celebrate, we have been taking a look at each year of the festival and what was going on in the world of Chicago sports at that time.
Today, it's all about food/drink as we compare Lolla's renowned Chow Town to the culinary offerings at each of Chicago's sports venues.
