So, Chicago has Restaurant Week in February, Chicago Chef Week in March, and we had Chicago Originals Restaurant week last week. Now…meat week?! Yes, you read right: meat week– the best thing since sliced bread for the carnivorous eater. Beginning yesterday through Feb. 6, Meat Week takes place at seven different barbecue restaurants (and some of Elevate Your Presence’s FAVES- hello SMOQUE). Around the city, you can vote on the best, greasy, spicy, messy BBQ the city has to offer. Don’t fret if you missed yesterday at Honey One BBQ, the finale will be there Feb 6. Get MEATY!
