Ribfest Chicago is expected to draw 50 thousand people to Chicago's North Side this weekend - people who will consume some 65,000 pounds of ribs. But not all those ribs will come from animals.
Kevin Porter and Chelsea Waldrop are the married couple that runs Delicious Cafe (previous review) in the St. Ben's neighborhood. Starting Friday, they'll be at Ribfest Chicago, introducing the carnivorous crowd to vegan ribs.
I sat down with Chelsea and Kevin to find out how they got into Ribfest Chicago, how you design a vegan rib, and why they're going to be there. You can listen to a recording of the interview here on Vocalo.org.
Ribfest Chicago runs this Friday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 10 p.m. It includes 25 bands and can be found at the intersection of Lincoln, Irving Park and Damen.
