    Is the Kaiser BBQ Chiefs sandwich making you feel hungry yet?

    If you're going to Lollapalooza this weekend, chances are, there's going to be some alcohol involved. And any veteran drinker worth his or her salt knows that it's a good idea to get some food in your stomach beforehand.

    So why not stick with the Lollapalooza theme and check out one of the Pork-A-Palooza menu items at Jake Melnick’s Corner Tap (41 E. Superior)?

    The restaurant, which already carries one of our favorite burgers in town (drool over this),is rotating several Lolla lineup-inspired items throughout the entire month, and is putting them in heavy rotation this weekend, including:
