This weekend's Northalsted Market Days will not be without controversy. A Facebook-led boycott of the event has formed in protest of the $30-50 VIP access to Horseshoe Casino's entertainment stage, where Jody Watley, En Vogue and Cece Peniston are scheduled to perform. Non-VIPs will have "partially obstructed" views of the stage. General admission was also increased this year as well.
