Top 10 Things to Try out at Lollapalooza

It's official, Lollapalooza weekend is finally here. The city is extremely lively and there is a plethora of activities to do. It would be crazy not to participate in at least one of these, Chicago summers are very random, we don't know when it will be over, so we must take advantage if it. Lucky for us the nice folks over at High Brew Coffee have created this amazing list for us. Don't miss out on any of these fun activities. 

Hope you enjoy!
