Happy Independence Day (Sales)!

Happy 4th of July, my loves!

A long holiday weekends are one of my favorite things in the whole world, because it means three things: fun parties with friends, spending time with family, and awesome sales! This holiday weekend is definitely no different.

First off, I have a FANTASTIC deal for all of my readers who are country music fans, barbecue and beer aficionados, festival junkies, or all of the above! If you use my promo code TCL on the ticket page, you can get a three-day general admission festival pass to Windy City Smokeout on July 15-17 for $75, instead of the original price of $110!


Windy City Smokeout—the foremost BBQ and country music festival in the Midwest—is returning to Chicago the weekend of Friday, July 15 through Sunday, July 17 for its fourth year. Hosted by Chicago’s BBQ destination, Bub City, and ACM award-winning Joe’s Bar, Windy City Smokeout promises to bring some of the best BBQ talent and craft breweries from around the nation as well as an impressive lineup of country music stars and up-and-coming talent.



The award-wining music lineup this year will include: Brandon Ray/Jessie James Decker/Chase Rice on Friday, Whiskey Myers/Big & Rich with special guest Cowboy Troy/Billy Currington on Saturday, and Sister C/Maren Morris/Old Dominion on Sunday. The culinary lineup features a fantastic group of pitmasters including, world champion pit master and television star Myron Mixon, the St. Louis staple Pappy’s Smokehouse, Tennessee’s renowned Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint, and of course a few local Chicago favorites including Lillie’s Q, Bub City, Chicago Q and Smoque.
