I’m in the Windy City this weekend for Chicago Market Days, the annual summertime Boystown celebration of day drinking and corny musical acts. I was actually in Chicago for the two-day music fest last year as well and took a bunch of pictures that I never got around to posting. So here! A little taste of the bros, the bears and the babes that will descend on North Halsted starting today. This year, Karmin, Neon Trees, Mary Lambert and Steve Grand are all set to perform.

If you’re out and about come say hello at the Stoli Guy event, happening on the Hydrate Stage on Sunday at 1pm.


Former Amazing Race contestants and full-time Vegas Chippendale studs, James and Jaymes, took the stage shirtless searching for pop stardom…

… but settled for some phallic stage foreplay.

IMG_9463Beer. Tacos. Party. What else would you need?

IMG_9449How about some steamy Twister shenanigans?

For obvious reasons, the crowds were easily distracted.

IMG_9462Bars took their themes to the streets, oftentimes quite literally.

IMG_9576Nothing “mini” about these bartenders.
