Overindulgent Girl

Every beautiful disaster in excess

23 May 2013 Chicago Festival Guide
It’s already that time of the year for the best season in Chicago: Street Fest Season!  Get out your koozis and friends for day drinking, art, music, people watching, cover bands and some 90’s one-hit-wonders playing that “one song” that everyone knows ("It’s been….one week since you looked at me…") and trust me, these band go great with vodka lemonades. Chicago Fest Season 2013!
