Tailgate Like a Pro With Lillie's Q

When it comes to quintessential autumn experiences, it doesn't get much better than tailgating. Especially when said tailgating includes Lillie's Q. And the potential to eviscerate the New York Giants with your vitriolic words. On Thursday, October 10, all of this becomes a reality as the Chicago Bears go head-to-head with the New York Giants and Lillie's Q lands at the nearby Adler Planetarium parking lot for a tailgate to end all tailgates.

Bucktown's revered barbecue haven is wheeling in a 27-foot trailer for the occasion, serving up mini pork and tri-tip sandwiches, slaw, and baked beans courtesy of chef Charlie McKenna. If you've ever tasted McKenna's 'cue, you know it's top-notch, and with food this good it almost doesn't even matter who wins the game. Or at least you can tell yourself that if and when you find yourself crying into your saucy hands. The food will be paired with Rib Shack Red Wine by Pacific Highways Wine. As revelers get their fill, they'll be able to watch the pre-game on a 50-inch TV attached to the trailer. The tailgate festivities kick off at 4:00 p.m.
