Fiesta Del Sol

Dear 'Hounds:

Its been about 7 years since I went to Fiesta Del Sol, trips to the summer place wreak havoc on the weekend festivals. However, I find myself trapped in the City this weekend including my engagement with Pilsen storefront theater: Thirsty Theater's Board member evening (lots of press due to Ald. Natarus starring in one of the Jeffrey Sweet one acts--see metromix..sorry I plugged).

Anywho... anyone with more updated history that can guide this Gringo to some of the food finds I might not otherwise experience?? Metromix is not much help. I remember this festival growing by leaps and bounds last time I checked. I thought they might have better coverage.

As you have seen from my Maxwell Street post, I pretty much see and eat the Mexican Street fare, but other than that I am fairly limited. Your suggestions are appreciated as I will be in that 'hood most of the weekend.

Regards,
Peter

    Regardless of the protocol, I'm responding to my own post.

    Fiesta Del Sol, is another victim of the City of Chicago's sanitized neighborhood fest program. The festival I remember was more homey and a bit reckless, does every part of the City really need to be safe for tourists? Or, should there be some areas safe from tourists?
