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:
