Food-a-palooza

Not even a storm-forced evacuation on Saturday could put a damper on the food, fun and music at this year’s Lollapoolza. The three-day Chicago music festival boasted a lineup that included the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jack White and Florence and the Machine, as well as 34 food vendors.  Fox New’s Marla Cichowski scoped out some of Chow Town’s best eats in Grant Park over the weekend.
